Dominick Cruz on fighting Henry Cejudo for a rematch

Recently on The Overdogs Podcast, Dominick Cruz shared his thoughts on fighting Henry Cejudo for a rematch in September.

“There’s a Mexico Independence Day card coming up, and I lost a fight,” Cruz said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I look back at my loss and I lost it fair and square to Henry Cejudo, but I do believe he could get a better version of me and really face a better version of me.

I’ve had rematches against (Joseph) Benavidez. I’ve had rematches against Urijah Faber. I’ve had rematches against that whole Team Alpha Male where I had to take each guy out, step by step, in order to keep my title.

So, I would love a rematch with Henry Cejudo on Mexican Independence Day in the Sphere. I think we could make a pretty awesome fight there”.
