UFC 169 will be headlined by a double header title fight featuring Cruz vs. Barao and Aldo vs. Lamas

Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz will finally return to the octagon after being sidelined for more than 2 years. He will be fighting in a unification bout with interim titleholder Renan Barao in the co-main event of the annual Super Bowl weekend event of UFC. Newsday was the first to report the news and it was confirmed by UFC officials afterwards.

Cruz has been out in the octagon since his second title defense against Demetrious Johnson in October 1, 2011. The injury occurred midway of the filming of the 15th season of The Ultimate Fighter where he coaches opposite to Urijah Faber. The two are set for a rubber match in a bout that will serve as a bantamweight title fight but to the injury, Cruz was replaced by Renan Barao. With the champion sidelined for the year, Barao and Faber fought for the interim title instead. Barao won that fight by unanimous decision. Since then, he defended the interim title twice against Michael McDonald and Eddie Wineland.

Interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao wants to be the best by fighting Dominick Cruz

Fresh from his highlight reel knock out of Eddie Wineland in UFC 165, Renan Barao has told MMAfighting.com that Dana White informed him that he won’t be defending the interim bantamweight in his return to the octagon.

The UFC has decided to strip Dominick Cruz of the regular title if “The Dominator” will not be cleared by the start of 2014. According to Barao, that decision makes a lot of sense since Cruz has been out for 2 years. Cruz last fought in the octagon when he defended his bantamweight title with a unanimous decision win over Demetrious Johnson in October of 2011.
