Dominick Cruz is set to make his return to the UFC tomorrow night against Takeya Mizugaki, after nearly a three year long absence from competition due to 2 torn ACL’s and a torn groin muscle.
While most of the MMA world turned their back on the former banatmweight champion, one of his biggest sponsors, Phoenix International Raceway hasn’t.
Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber spoke with MMAJunkie about their sponsorship with Cruz.
“Dominick is a true Arizona success story, and his hard work and dedication are a tremendous example to fight fans and race fans alike. We are proud to sponsor him in his return to action, and all of us at Phoenix International Raceway will be cheering him on.”
The former bantamweight champion is extremely appreciative of the support, and is excited to return to the Octagon.
“I can’t wait to get back in the octagon and compete again – and to do it with the support of my friends at Phoenix International Raceway. This has been a long, hard road back, but knowing that everyone in Arizona was behind me made it possible.”
