A highly anticipated bantamweight title fight between champion T.J. Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz has been set to headline a January 'Fight Night' card. UFC President Dana White confirmed the matchup on Wednesday's UFC Tonight. Although no exact event for the bout has been announced, Dillashaw vs. Cruz is expected to be the first title fight on a FOX Sports 1 card in UFC history. Dillashaw is coming off a huge fourth-round TKO win over former titleholder Renan Barao in a rematch at UFC on FOX 16 this past July. Prior to that, he stopped Joe Soto in his first title defense. Cruz has been out of action for nearly a year, when he returned and destroyed Takeya Mizugaki in the first round. Prior to that, he had been sitting on the sidelines since late 2011.
