Cruz: ‘I’m still the best’

BJ Cruz

“I’m gunning for the title. If you’re in this sport and you’re not gunning for the title, you’re in the wrong sport. But I’m just taking one step in front of the other and I’m not skipping any steps. When you start to skip steps you start looking past people.”

“I’m still the best bantamweight in the world in my mind, yes. That’s still something I need to go in there and fight. It’s been a long time since I fought. If I had any doubt that I was the best in the world then I shouldn’t be competing. If you don’t think you’re going to be the best, what’s the point?

In a recent interview with FOX Sports, former UFC bantawmeight champion Dominick Cruz expressed his desires to return to form following what is now a two-year absence from action.

The former champ was stripped from his title following the lengthy absence, but returns to action on Saturday in Vegas.
