Dominick Cruz stepped back into the UFC Octagon at UFC 249 to face Henry Cejudo for the Bantamweight title. However, his much-awaited comeback did not go as expected.

In the later minutes of the second round, Cejudo caught Cruz with a huge knee. He proceeded into a ground-and-pound. A struggling Cruz let all the shots go unanswered. Yet, he constantly tried to gain an advantageous position. But referee Keith Peterson thought it was better to call the fight to a stop. Cejudo went on to win via TKO.

However, it seems like Cruz is not done just yet. He is apparently training harder to bounce back and rule the Bantamweight Division yet again.

It looks like Cruz is ready to get back on track as soon as possible.

Dominick Cruz is still unhappy with UFC Referee

Even though Cruz accepted his defeat and headed on to leave the Octagon, he made it clear as soon as the fight came to a stop that in his belief, Keith’s decision was wrong.

He felt that he had just started to counter Cejudo’s ground-and-pound when Keith gave the signal to stop the fight. And Cruz did not just stop there.

He took digs at Keith on social media and press conferences. He even accused Keith of smelling alcohol and cigarettes during the fight. And he said that that is probably the reason for such a hasty decision.

Cruz’s former rival, Urijah Faber, too, believes that it is justified for Cruz to feel that way. He said,

“At the end of the day, especially in world championship fights when you’re dealing with guys that are future Hall of Famers and multiple-time world champions, we want to remove all doubt. We want to know like I had no more chance so I feel for him [Cruz] on that.”
