Video: Watch Aljamain Sterling train with ‘bantamweight GOAT’ Dominick Cruz in preparation for Henry Cejudo

Aljamain Sterling got some wrestling rounds in with a bantamweight great ahead of UFC 288.

Bantamweight champion Sterling (22-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) is expected to defend his title against Henry Cejudo (16-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) on May 6, and he got the opportunity to work with former champion Dominick Cruz at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.

Check out some of their training below, courtesy of Sterling’s YouTube channel.

Cruz is Cejudo’s most recent opponent. The pair squared off in a title fight in May 2020, when Cejudo knocked out Cruz in Round 2 to retain his bantamweight title at UFC 249. Cejudo retired after the fight and will be returning from a three-year layoff when he looks to reclaim his belt against Sterling.
