TJ's footwork looked alot like Cruz...no?
Barao couldn't handle the movement. Would heavily favor Cruz against him.
Don't ever put TJ's name with Cruz in the same sentence again.
That is disrespectful to TJ.
Cruz with more power.
His footwork is a mix of Dom Cruz and Faber.
Cruz is the best BW on the planet
Very much so. However, I don't think even Cruz could cut an angle like Dillishaw was doing when he was slipping those kicks and punches and tagging Barao behind the ear. That was fucking beautiful.
This ain't 2011 anymore.
since when does Cruz finish a fight though
I remember after what Eddie Wineland's movement did to Barao in round 1 (before he got knocked out in round 2 because of his non existent defense lmao) I thought Cruz would beat Barao
and then TJ Dillashaw bounces in and does something similar and does it first. Nice.
He has the footwork of Cruz - with the aggression, power and finishing ability that Cruz always lacked.
Except he has power. Cruz has great movement, but he can't bust a grape.
Being the bigger slower fighter finally back fired on Barao
For sure reminded me of Cruz. Moving in and out and constantly weaving in different directions... You could tell Barao was frustrated and confused. The way he used angles to land punches and throw combos also reminded me of Cruz. Kinda ironic that the first UFC title Team Alpha Male could take home was won by emulating Faber's arch nemesis eh? War Cruz!
Yeah he did. The difference is he sat on his punches at times which Cruz rarely does(nothing against Cruz he's one of my favorites).
His movement was awesome. Slower than Cruz but he was not point fighting.
Cruz immediately came to mind watching him fight.
Always thought 2011 Cruz ability to work his angles was simply awe inspiring. Now, well he needs to fight first.
TJ's footwork and speed were very similar.
That's probably the reason. Cruz would sacrifice too much power for his unbelievable speed.
I had the same thought as the fight progressed
Separate names with a comma.
