It's been almost two years since Dominick (The Dominator) Cruz last stepped foot inside the octagon.

The UFC bantamweight champion has been on the mend following a pair of surgeries to repair a torn ACL. During this time, he's been forced to watch from the sidelines as Renan (Barao) Pegado has reigned supreme in the 135-pound division.

At UFC 165 in Toronto this weekend, Pegado will stage his second interim title defence when he battles former WEC champ Eddie Wineland.
