Dana White Has No Plans on Stripping Dominick Cruz of the UFC Bantamweight Title

February 13, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

- Dana White recently spoke about the status of UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz. Here are the highlights…

On Stripping Cruz of His Title: “If he starts training again and gets another injury that’s going to take him out for a year – and I hate to even say this about the kid since he’s a really good kid – but he should seriously probably look at retiring,” White said. “But I’m not taking something like [the title] from somebody. The way that it works in the fight business is you beat the man who beat the man. Obviously, though, if he had to retire, then [the interim titleholder] would automatically become the champion.”

What Can He Say About Cruz’s Status?: “I’ve never seen anybody with worse luck than this kid has had over the last several years. Everything is going as well as can be expected, and hopefully he comes back soon. But that’s really all I can say.”
