    Default Baro vs Wineland set as Main Event at UFC 161 for the Interim Belt




    Looks like cruz isnt ready for that summer time match with barao. I personally think Barao takes this fight pretty easily.

    Agreed

    Poor Cruz man, what a devastating injury this has turned out to be. Looks like it will be 2years between fights for him, based on the timing of the above fight

    I hear you man, last kickboxing bout I was in, I wrecked my LCL. That was winter 2011, and I'm still going to physio twice a month, and it wasn't even a clean tear. The knees are a fucking game changer man, makes me feel old as shit haha

    I used to run everyday.

    Now I can't even run for 1 minute without my knee slipping.

    Yeah no doubt, I am not a huge Cruiz fan but you got to feel for him. Taken out of his game just as he was peaking... And then after a couple years off possibly, you got to wonder how rusty his game will be.

    I almost think Cruiz should give up the belt so he can do a warm up fight before going for a title shot on his return.

    Y'all sound like a couple old men. Just kiddin', I have been blessed with good knees. A good buddy of mine can barely walk down a hill or steep slope while playing disc golf without almost blowing out his knees.

    Snore on Wineland.

    ZUFFA should've just sprung for Bibano when they had the chance and given him an interim title shot.

    Dominick Cruz remaining positive but admits recent title announcement 'sucks for me' - MMA Fighting

    "I'm listening to my doctors," he wrote via text message, "and I'm not putting extra pressure on myself by giving any timeline because it's not possible to do so as of now. Everything associated with recovery/rehab is on track 100 percent."


    Cruz (19-1) hasn't fought since he defended his belt against Demetrious Johnson at UFC on Versus 6 in Oct. 2011. He tore his ACL weeks before he was scheduled to fight Urijah Faber for a third time at UFC 146 last summer, and then was forced to undergo a second knee surgery in December when it was revealed that his injury didn't heal properly.

    "I'm out of the equation until I'm cleared by the doctor," he wrote. "Barao is the champion for now, and my belt/title defenses up to this point save me a spot to fight the interim champion when I am healed.

    "The UFC is a machine, and machines never stop. It's out of my hands at this point.

    "And yes, needless to say, this sucks for me."

    This is the championship fight in my eyes. Cruz does not hold a belt now and needs to fight one or two fights before getting another shot. As for Eddie...I like this match, he's coming off two wins, one of those KO but prior to this 2 losses. Anyway, he's not a bad matchup...much better than some that have been happening. I hope for a good fight but this seems like one that Barao can win or lose depending on what he does. Eddie is a gamer so this should be fun to watch if nothing else.
