Dominick Cruz has labeled the UFC a “machine” heading into his bout in opposition to Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera on August 13. Cruz comes into this matchup on a two-fight win streak, whereas Vera is on a three-fight win streak.
Cruz joined the UFC in 2011 and constructed a promotional document of 7-2. ‘The Dominator’ has additionally landed a constant job as a UFC commentator/analyst. With that stated, the previous bantamweight champion believes the UFC normally prioritizes what’s greatest for them.
During an interview with Jon Anik, Cruz was requested in regards to the matchup in opposition to Vera being a title shot eliminator, and he had this to say:
“I believe this is all the implications of a title fight. You’re not wrong, and neither is Chael [Sonnen], but that doesn’t mean the UFC cares. They don’t care. They are a machine. And any machine is no heart.”
“It’s just money, power, and energy, and that’s what the UFC runs with, and that’s ok. I’ve accepted that, and that’s what it is. They don’t care what I deserve, they care what happens, and that’s it.”
Although Cruz believes the winner ought to get a title shot, it would not be surprising to see them want yet another win. TJ Dillashaw is anticipated to get the subsequent title shot with Jose Aldo and Petr Yan lurking for an additional shot.
If ‘Chito’ or ‘The Dominator’ wish to face the winner of Dillashaw/Sterling, they want a powerful win that makes them simple.
