UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz (22-1 MMA) will return to action at UFC 207 this December in Las Vegas.

“The Dominator” will defend his title against Cody Garbrandt at the December 30 pay-per-view event.

Dominick Cruz was most recently seen in action at June’s UFC 199 event in Los Angeles where he earned a unanimous decision victory over bitter rival Urijah Faber.

Prior to his victory over Faber, Cruz was coming off a title-earning split-decision victory over former division champion T.J. Dillashaw this past January in Boston.

Meanwhile, Cody Garbrandt (10-0 MMA) was last seen in action at August’s UFC 202 event in Las Vegas, where he earned a first-round knockout victory over Takeya Mizugaki. The win marked Cody’s third-straight knockout victory in a row, as “No Love” had previously disposed of Thomas Almeida and Augusto Mendes via first-round finishes.

UFC 207 takes place December 30 live from T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas. The event is headlined by a women’s bantamweight championship fighting featuring current title holder Amanda Nunes taking on former champion Ronda Rousey.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
