Dominick Cruz has gone on record to say that he is recovered from an arm injury that forced him out of action and hopes to face either Dillashaw or Garbrandt later this year, according to

Speaking at a media event this past Thursday with Fox Sports analyst Michael Bisping, Cruz opened up about his future. “I don’t know, I just got cleared by the doctor so I’m good to go,” said Cruz. “I’ll talk to (UFC matchmaker Sean) Shelby, I’ll talk to everybody. I’m on track though. So I will be going to fight. I’m going to fight before the end of the year is my goal so we’ll see what happens. I know T.J. Dillashaw and Cody are fighting and I should be having the winner of that.

Cruz continued, “That’s what everybody wants to see so hopefully somebody gets some wits about them and gives me that fight right away. We’ll see what happens.”

Cruz said he would be open to fight at the December 8 UFC pay-per-view in Toronto saying, “Get ‘em to sign it, I’ll take that.”
