At least he has taken very little damage in his fights. Assuming is actually able to recover from his injuries, I think this will help as he relatively little fight mileage.

As injury prone as he is, I really don't want to see him become champ again, only to repeat the long layoff process.

Cruz executed TD's absolutely beautifully prior to the injury.

His knee-tap.... so simple.... so effective, watched him perform it once and was immediately inspired to add it to my repertoire.

I don't care. Just hope he doesn't rush it again and comes back to full health.

Brilliant fighter imo. If the mma community didn't abuse the P4P rankings he would've been no.1 during pretty much his entire active career. There are many athletes that can play the game but only a rare few geniuses can reinvent it.

Yeah, will be 3 years in October.
But, I mean, even if he fights in, let's say, July it will have been a long ass time.

I can't wait for his return. I really hope we get to see him again, his fighting style is matched by no one else. War Cruz!
