UFC San Diego main event: Marlon Vera vs. Dominick Cruz

Marlon Vera (19-7-1) has constantly been knocking on the door to a title shot, but has never been able to step over the threshold. He’s as close as ever entering the bout opposite Dominick Cruz in San Diego. Vera has wins over Davey Grant, Frankie Edgar, and Rob Font in his last three bouts. An impressive victory over Cruz could be what propels him to the championship rung.

The biggest hurdle in Dominick Cruz’s (24-3) illustrious career has been injury. He’s a former WEC featherweight and bantamweight champion, as well as the first and former UFC bantamweight champion. He holds wins over the best of the best in the world. After losing back-to-back bouts to Cody Garbrandt and Henry Cejudo, Cruz has since defeated Casey Kenney and Pedro Munhoz. Defeating Vera would help propel him back into the mix of the bantamweight division’s upper crust.
