Dominick Cruz and Marlon Vera will face off in a bantamweight duel this weekend as the pair headline Saturday’s UFC Fight Night event.
Cruz is a former two-time division champion who went on a nearly four-year hiatus between 2016 and 2020 and is 2-1 since returning to mixed martial arts.
Most recently, the 36-year-old American overtook Pedro Munhoz in December to claim a second straight win while Vera is on a three-fight win streak.
The 29-year-old Ecuadorian secured a stunning KO against Frankie Edgar last year, a result sandwiched between decision victories over Rob Font and Davey Grant.
