UFC president Dana White just went on Fox Sports 1 and announced some big news in the form of a fight between UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw and former champ Dominick Cruz.
The fight comes out of nowhere, as it was speculated that the UFC would be looking to put the fight together, but we had no idea when Cruz would be ready.
Looks like he will be and the fight will go down on a UFC Fight Night card in Boston, taking place on Jan. 17.
Cruz has been out since his last fight, a destruction of Takeya Mizugaki back in Sept. 2014. Dillashaw is coming off of another devastating beating of Renan Barao just a little more than a month ago at UFC on FOX 16.
