"LOS ANGELES -- Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is back training in his latest attempt to return from the injuries which have sidetracked his career.

"His Alliance MMA teammate, Michael Chandler, reports that Cruz returned to the Chula Vista gym this week as he rehabs a groin injury.

"'He's doing good,' said Chandler, who was in Hollywood on Tuesday shooting promos for his May 17 Bellator lightweight title trilogy fight against Eddie Alvarez. 'He's back in the gym this week. He's not full sparring, but he's drilling and he's doing grappling and stuff and getting into that kind of stuff.'"
