Sorry if this is a stupid question but I just purchased a ft-726R and notice that there is an antenna jack one for 2m and one for 70cm.  If I have a dual band antenna, do I need a duplexor to use one antenna.

I wasn't planning on two individual antennas for this radio.

Correct.  Diamond and Comet sell various models (different connectors and specific frequency bandwidths for each port/coax connection.)
Separate antennas for each band was common for VHF/UHF radios of this era .... Satellite, EME, and weak-signal usage.

I have a Yaesu FT-4700RH. It also has a separate output for the VHF (PL-259) and UHF (Type N). The instructions say to use a Duplexer for a single duel band antenna. The MFJ-116B at $34.95 should do the job. I have also been told a Diplexer should work well, but I am giving you the Yaesu recommendation.
