    Sherdog fan favorite Brendan Schaub has a podcast with Bryan Callen and in the latest episode Brendan claimes that Cruz would be able to outstrike Mayweather in a standning mma fight. He mentions once a mma fight but he talks about it like its only standup.

    Here is some quotes

    "Dominick Cruz would tear him a new"
    "In the octagon Dominic Cruz would pick him apart, on the feet"

    Bryan Callen doesnt belive him and Brendan tell us its not even up for discussion and brings up leg kicks and Dominick Cruz crazy angles.

    "And Dominicks angles, the best in the game"

    Even if Mayweather got to prepare with learning kick defense he would lose because of Dominicks superior head movement and angles.
    He ends with saying he guarante Dominick would pick him a part.

    The podcast is called The fighter and the kid if you want to listen.
    Your thoughts on this, would Dominick beat Floyd in a mma standup fight?

    Of course he would. Mayweather is not an MMA fighter. He took one punch to the thigh from Canelo and needed to get a massage afterward. Any competent kicker would chop him down after a few leg kicks

    I thought this was going to say in a boxing match. In an MMA match I'm sure he would.

    Real tired of hearing about Schuab and Mayweather too

    He would, purely because of the leg kicks...purely fists in an Octagon? Cruz gets KO'd. Cruz is a smaller guy plus those small gloves are no joke.

    cruz is bigger then mayweather.

    i don't mind schaub, but he doesn't really know how to talk on a podcast, he buts in way to often and seems to say some really silly shit, Bryan Callen is brilliant tho

    This is what the effects of being KO'd are.

    Not possible. Humble opinion, Nothing is impossible in combat sports. But very few MMA fighters can win top tier boxer standing up. VERY FEW.

    But still, I always find this discussion irrelevant. It's like saying,
    Orange have more Vitamin C than Apple!
    No! you can't compared Apple to Orange!
    But.. but they are both fruits.

    Snore.

    Not in a mma fight, he meant in a mma stand up fight.

    Dominick Cruz legkicks would be huge. He did however show huge holes against Johnson where he got pressured, he got hit alot and had to make it a wrestling match.

    Dominick is often able to out strike guys because of hes great wrestling considering he doesnt have the power to keep guys away from him with hes striking. I dont see how he would be able to stop Mayweather from walking him down.

    I think Mayweather would be way to slick and be able to pressure him with hes fotwork and angling.

    Claiming Dominick Cruz angling and headmovement being better is ridicolous acording to me.
