The upcoming Cruz vs Benavidez bout presents an opportunity to study the classic "tall vs short" fighter matchup. Obviously, Cruz is the taller, rangier striker and Benavidez is the shorter opponent. What makes this interesting to me is the fact that Benvadez is not known as an outstanding striker, but more of a takedown, GnP fighter. The reason I believe this an interesting study of "tall vs short" striker...is that I dont beleive Benvadez has a chance of geting Cruz down and working his GnP. For Benavadez to win this fight...he is going to have to do it on his feet. So.....1: Do you Benavadez will abandon his previously futitle attempts to get Cruz down and attempt to win a striking battle? And 2: If so...what will his stratedgy be? What say ye?
