Dominick Cruz

Dominick Cruz doesn’t expect Brock Lesnar to make it into the Octagon A whole bunch has been seen about Brock Lesnar and his appearance in the Octagon after UFC 226. We posted the video a week ago, but you can still see it right here. Long story short, Dominick Cruz feels Brock Lesnar is doping … Read moreDominick Cruz claims Brock Lesnar is “100 percent, absolutely” doping.

Dominick Cruz offers up some friendly advice for Floyd Mayweather

dominick-cruz-offers-advice-mayweather

Floyd Mayweather says his wrestling is a 7 on a scale from 1-10. Also, the Easter Bunny is real and the Dalai Lama is a Pagan. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s speak realistically. Floyd says he needs 6-8 months of training to be ready for a top UFC opponent and Dominick Cruz has some advice for him.

“I would say that if Floyd Mayweather needs 6-8 months to prepare for his first MMA and he wants to fight one of the best in the world; I could make that with one arm and fight him. That’s just the way it is.”

Cruz goes on to explain that this is the reason that Floyd enlisted the services of Tyron Woodley. If Floyd is actually serious about doing this MMA thing, he should train with one of the best wrestlers in the UFC.

Still, if Floyd fights in the UFC it will only be against someone who is as wildly unqualified to be there as he is. There is no chance of Floyd taking someone on who is a top level UFC fighter for at least 3 years. None.

The Pound for Pound MMA Breakdown. Ranking the top five.

pound for pound

Pound for pound is the mythical base of all debate. For what it’s worth, I was asked back in 2000 to do a pound for-pound list.  I wasn’t really sure what went into making such a list, and I did a little research and needless to say, my list was an unholy failure. I was … Read moreThe Pound for Pound MMA Breakdown. Ranking the top five.

Real Quick, Retro Pick. That one time Dominick Cruz fought a ninja.

Real Quick, Retro Pick. That one time Dominick Cruz fought a ninja.

It was 2008 and MMA was still developing its identity. There were people out there that doubted the authenticity of it and did what we used to call ‘dojo storming’. One such person was a ninja.

Yes, an actual ninja. I’m not sure what the art of Ninjitsu entails exactly, but I know it has a lot to do with focus and invisibility; Two traits of which this guy didn’t have when he walked into North County Fight Club and called out any MMA fighter. He found his opponent. A kid from the WEC with a 1-1 record, Dominick Cruz.

Again, I’m not positive with what being a ninja consists of, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t basketball shorts and no ground game. The ninja looked like he definitely had trained some form of Karate, as his traditional stance showed. His downfall in this fight was never training any grappling his entire life. You choose one gym to ‘dojo storm’ and it’s home to the future most dominant bantamweight ever.

Maybe next time, ease up on shooting poison darts through bamboo rods and hurling throwing stars at sandbags.

Dominick Cruz on Cody: “He knows that I’m better than him.”

Dominick Cruz on Cody: "He knows that I'm better than him."

Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is never at a loss for words. Considering he spends time at the FOX commentary table when he’s not fighting, that comes as no surprise.

TMZ Sports sat down with Cruz for a brief chat and naturally one of the topics was the new champion Cody Garbrandt. Garbrandt took the title from Cruz at UFC 207 with a unanimous decision victory.

While Cruz would love a rematch, he seems to feel that Cody is the one that can’t stop talking about it.

Here his take on that and more in the video below:
