Aljamain Sterling is determined to get a shot at former Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. After his huge win at UFC 228, Sterling has made it clear that he wants a higher ranked opponent.
Dominick Cruz is one of the names that Sterling has been after for a long time. While appearing on the Ariel Helwani MMA show, Sterling explained why he wants to fight Cruz next.
Sterling said that Cruz is ‘entitled’ and also recalled how Cody Garbrandt defeated Cruz.
“I’m not necessarily mad at him, but at this point in the game I think he’s a little too entitled to feel he deserves a title shot after a one-sided loss. He got beat around from pillar to post in the cage against Cody Garbrandt. And Cody just got starched twice by T.J,” he said. (via MMA Mania)
Sterling also took a shot at the commentary job of Cruz.
“I understand you’re doing the commentary and you think that’s your way to stay relevant. No bro, we’re the ones putting in the work,” he added.
