My guess would be that the answer is twofold; firstly, because he hasn't fought in three years and for casual fans, who make up a decent percentage of the PPV buyers, his name carries nothing at the moment. Secondly, I think we'd all like to see him back in there with a Johnson or Faber or Barao level of opponent but let's allow him to get his feet back under himself before plunging too deep into the talent pool.MVH wrote:Why the hell do they put Dominick Cruz in the prelims?
Should he win this fight comfortably, I'm sure he'll be given his choice of opponent. Whether or not he chooses to go after Dillashaw will likely depend on how he feels after the bout. Personally, I'd like to see him take on the winner of McGregor/Poirier but he might opt for Holdsworth or Pettis.
