    When TJs name was floating around as BW goat I was fucking babbled.

    Dominic Cruz only has 2 losses, 1 to All time great Faber that he avenged twice and another to Cody Garbrandt who’s just a younger guy from a newer era.

    Dominic’s wins
    -Dillashaw (top 3 bw goat)
    -Demetrius Johnson (FlyW goat)
    -Faber 2X (top 3 bw GOAT)
    -Benavidez
    -Mizugaki

    Dillashaws resume is clearly inferior if you actually stack his notable wins against his losses.

    Same with Faber.

    Dominic is easily BW GOAT- even before TJ got melted by Cejudo and pissed hot for epo

    At BW he is current GOAT imo, but he is not underrated, i think his infrequent fights have contributed to people forgetting his achievements

    I think we can all agree he is the BW goat but it seems more and more unlikely he will ever return. Also, what happened to Domin8tor? He get banned or something?

    It’s hard to argue against him not being BW goat. His loss to Garbrandt and inactivity could justify that argument for some. I’d love to see healthy Cruz fight Cejudo, I like his chances.

    Seriously tho, if Dom had a healthy career he probably would have been the face of the UFC.

    It sucks how injure prone he got later in his career.

    Sorry to say it because injuries suck, but he also losses to his own body.

    He's not underappreciated, in fact he's quite loved on forums and the UFC utilize him incredibly well. Doms issue is his unfortunate injuries that have ruined what could have been a sensational prime of his career

    That loss to Cody hist sticks out like a sore thumb though. Everytime I think about Cruz my first thought is that fight.

    One impressive win since 2016 and a lot of split decisions, he gets plenty of respect

    cruz is the most overrated fighter in UFC history

    the guy fights once every six years and couldn't even finish flyweights in his prime

    he will never fight again, but i wish he would come back and get exposed by moraes

    He's the BW GOAT, not sure how he's underappreciated.

    He would have been plenty liked if he fought and won like 6 more times during his reign instead of sitting injured for like 6 years or whatever.
