Cruz revealed on Thursday that he will not require surgery to repair the foot and will be back to training in 4-6 weeks.

There were some questions on who he would be fighting next. Would it be against TJ Dillashaw or old time rival Urijah Faber? According to Cruz, he already knows that the answer to that question.

“For the past four years, the only name I’ve been asked about is Faber,” Cruz wrote via text message to MMAFighting.com, “whether I’m on the FOX desk or shopping at the mall. Let’s get him out of my face and out of the way, so I can continue to clean out the division.

“We owe it to the fans to make this trilogy happen. It’s been almost a decade in the making.”

The two are 1-1 against each other. No word on when this fight will be taking place.
