    Cruz. Anyone think the way Dillashaw is moving and some of the angles he is taking are reminiscent of Dominick Cruz? With the obvious difference that so far Dillashaw has shown an ability to generate power moving like this.

    Awesome fight so far. I hope TJ pulls off the upset.

    Yeah, I realized that in his fight with Easton.

    Cruz style with more power, less speed.

    exactly what i thought but with more power and a lil less movement/versatility. I always thought Cruz could/would beat Barao if he could come back fully. That style is hard to deal with.

    I like Dillashaws power better tho.

    I can see the similarities, but still a different style.

    Cruz' movement is better, but TJ for sure throws more power.

    Prime Cruz would dominate Renan with his movement

    Way more power than Cruz. Cruz couldn't punch the air out of a whoopie cushion.

    Just haven't seen anyone with movement like Cruz except TJ. TJ has more power

    I see some similarities but I've never seen Gus snapping out quality kicks like TJ is. He's definitely not fighting exactly like Cruz either. In the first round he looked a lot like Cruz but when he settles into the pocket, not so much. He looks sharp everywhere. I'm very impressed.

    Bad night for Barao or do we have a world beater on our hands?

    Barao P4P #1 boys, clearly. The murderers row he fought compared to Jones!

    Gotta agree after this fight... Fuck tho I've always considered Dom still the champ tho. Barao is still a fucking killer. People hating on him now are absolutely ridiculous...
