Dom Cruz Punching??

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by KnockYouOut, Dec 31, 2016.

  1. I Kinda like Cruz but what is up with his punching. Is it because his hands are messed up and he is adjusting??
    Doesn't look like he could hurt anyone sometimes

    I think he punches off balanced just to confuse the oponnent, you see a guy off balanced you assume he wont punch, it´s not to hurt, it´s just to make points.

    Not sure precisely what aspect of his punching technique youre referring too. His punching has always been absurd in my opinion - mainly because he won't set his feet to generate any power. It has seemed to be excused by his fans b/c he's in a lighter weight-class, which I dont understand.

    yup, what he said^^^. Dom rarely sets his feet when striking so it is nearly impossible to generate torque which is needed for power shots. I thought he looked a bit slower than usual last night, Cody looked significantly faster which suprised me.
     
  6. The whole thing, the angles, the off balance, the technique , not even sure if he punches with his knuckles or side of his hand sometimes...I don't know, just looks non-threatening

    No disagreement on my part.
