“I’M ALWAYS TRAINING, I’VE BEEN TRAINING THIS WHOLE TIME,” CRUZ SAID ON A RECENT EPISODE OF UFC UNFILTERED (H/T MMAMANIA). “FOR ME, THE TITLE SHOT IS IMPORTANT. I’VE EARNED THAT SHOT, I HELD THE BELT LONGER THAN ANYONE IN THIS DIVISION AND I HELP BUILD THE DIVISION.”
“I GAVE CODY THAT SHOT WHEN I COULD’VE FOUGHT T.J. AGAIN. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS TO BUILD THE DIVISION. I BROUGHT ANOTHER GUY UP AND FOUGHT HIM FOR THE TITLE BECAUSE I WANTED ANOTHER GUY IN THE MIX. WE NEEDED THAT FOR THE DIVISION. IF ANY ONE OF THESE GUYS GETS HURT I WOULD LIKE TO SLIDE IN AND CHALLENGE FOR THE TITLE, 100-PERCENT.”
