    Every fighter copied someone else's style. You don't learn to fight in a vacuum. Youre influenced by fighters you've watched, fought, we're trained by.

    DJ, Cruz, Edgar, Wonderboy....Conor's flowy touch-butt shenanigans is also up there.

    Not true at all. Who has Jon Jones copied? Conor? Machida? The list goes on

    I do not think their styles are all that similar. Both have great footwork but excel in different areas. Other guys that have have great footwork:
    DJ - may be the best
    J. Jones
    Conor
    Whittaker
    Ferguson
    Rose
    Sergio Pettis

    Hot Take inbound:

    I don't think Cruz or TJ have amazing footwork; it's just fancy. Footwork can also be seen as being in good position, forcing your opponent to move, etc.

    Boxing Legends TV had a great video on this comparing Ali to someone else, I wish I could find it.

    As far as who I think has the best footwork in MMA, hard question. McGregor is pretty good, I thought Aldo used to be pretty great; especially the way he defended against wrestlers, Till is looking good from a MT standpoint, Wonderboy has good karate footwork, etc.
    That said, I'm not about to argue that Cruz and TJ aren't good at moving their feet. I just don't think it's the best ever seen.
