    Dominick Cruz is back.

    After spending almost two years on the sidelines, the former WEC and UFC bantamweight champion will return to the Octagon against knockout artist John Lineker at UFC 233.

    Brazilian MMA outlet Combate first reported the bout last month, and the UFC confirmed the matchup on Wednesday.

    Cruz, who is widely considered one of, if not the, best bantamweight fighter of all time, hasn’t fought since his championship loss to Cody Garbrandt at UFC 207. ‘The Dominator’ was expected to return against Jimmie Rivera last December but was forced to pull out of the bout after suffering a broken arm.

    His nickname should be mister Glass... though it doesn't roll off the tongue as well.

    Cody did a damn fine job at making Cruz play checkers. Wouldn’t count out Lineker. Cruz can be goaded into a brawl.

    Cruz will bash him and then TJ and avenge his loss to Cody. Guy gets no respect
