    "It's like when you are a little kid and you literally repeat what the other person just said," Cruz told FloCombat. "At a certain point I thought he was making us both look dumb because he was so bad at speaking. I would say something and he would just start yelling loud noises at me because he didn't want me to get my thought out.”

    "It actually reminds me of [Urijah] Faber because that was Faber's tactic,” Cruz continued. “Anytime we had a press conference or a media scrum where we were supposed to exchange points, every time I would start talking he would just start screaming nonsense over the top so I couldn't even say what I wanted to say.

    "What you get is me trying to talk and these other people screaming absurd things over top of me and it kills the interview. It's a spineless, gutless and sad approach that's very weak."

    Cruz is absolutely underrated as a trash talker. He takes up all your weaknesses and make you look stupid.
     
  3. That's pretty much what happened.

    Lately though people have been noticing his shit talking skills. So he's becoming properly rated. People are saying he's second best after Conor, i'd have to agree.

    ...Maybe it would have been if Cody could actually pull it off with some intonation and make it sound believable...instead it came off flat and cringeworthy

    Cruz always had venomous trash talking skills.

    Just that most UFC bros are too slow to get it.

    Eh, he gets a -1 for the retarded line "Who have you beat?", and should be -2 since the answer is Cody's entire gym.

    Cruz is better than Conor, just less flamboyant.

    Conor uses canned/rehearsed lines, while Cruz volleys insults like a boss.

    Cody looked pretty hopeless in the exchanges. I felt bad for him, to an extent, until he started talking over Dom so he couldn't belittle him further. It kinda makes you question his mental game. Believe me I will accept i'm wrong if Cody beats him but I think he'll wilt out of frustration in the 2nd round and just go headhunting while being picked apart for 5 rounds.
