    His footwork is among the best in all of mma.

    It's a shame he'll probably never reach that level again due to injuries.

    Barao is much better IMO. The only thing left for Dominick fans will be to say that he was not in his peak.

    Would be nice if he could face someone like Mayday on his return.

    Cruz doesn't get as much credit as he should (mostly cause he hasn't fought in so long). I truly believe he's one of the top 5 p4p (if he stays healthy). Always found him very entertaining soon.

    Really? Just start from UFC 40 onward. You're a trooper for sitting through UFC 1 to 25. I couldn't do that sh*t.

    Could see Cruz beating Barao, he's got much better footwork and is overall much less hittable.

    If he returns he'll probably be #2 in the division for a while, I don't think any version of Cruz beats Barao.

    I thought Faber won their 2nd fight, and Cruz is a smaller, methed out Keith Jardine. Overrated for sure.

    I remember the first time being truly impressed with him during the first Benavidez fight. It was just 15 minutes of non-stop, high-intensity action, like something out of StreetFighter Turbo, or Lucha Libre or something.

    Yea the new kids around here don't know shit about how good Cruz was.

    Cruz cleared out 135 minus barao when 135 was tougher and had fighters like MM & Benavidez.
