Dominick Cruz may have re-won his UFC bantamweight title last night, but that doesn’t mean he was going to let suspended broadcast partner Kenny Florian off the hook….
Newly crowned UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz regained the championship he never lost by defeating TJ Dillashaw in the main event of last night’s (January 17, 2016) UFC Fight Night 81 from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, but Cruz return from the most harrowing injury layoff in MMA history was more about the belt.
It was the culmination of four years of heartache, hard work, and perseverance that culminated in the highly emotional return to the mountaintop for Cruz. ‘The Dominator’ had to topple one of the world’s best pound-for-pound fighters in Dillashaw to do it, but that doesn’t mean that Cruz was going to take it all seriously.
Apparently Cruz was in a joking mood, and used his post-fight mic time to call out fellow UFC analyst Kenny Florian. Read on to watch his hilarious callout on the next page…
The champ used his post-fight interview as an opportunity to blast his friend and FOX Sports broadcast colleague Florian, who was suspended by the network for plagiarizing a UFC Fight Night 81 analysis article earlier this week, with the following barb at the end of his victory interview courtesy of UFC on FOX:
Ouch. A brutal callout from Cruz, who was obviously joking with his good friend Florian. The future is looking bright for Cruz despite a notable foot injury, and it seems like he’s going to deservedly have some fun with his time in the limelight.
