It seems as though he can give great technical analysis for every fight, and is usually right when giving his analysis. He also usually has great game-plans as well. Chael and Stann are good but I feel as though Cruz is the best mind we have in MMA right now.
 
People here sure love superlatives like "greatest of all time", "the best" or the like

I like Cruz's commentary. But I also appreciate nuggets of MMA knowledge from King Mo and Frank Mir.
 
I'm a huge Dom fan, so I agree... he's as smart in the predictions/analysis as he is in fights.


That said, all I know for sure is that when I'm not looking at the screen and Cruz is talking, I keep thinking.....

Yeah he's good but settle down with the goat talk.
 
what cruz says is very intelligent and often spot on

its just that he sounds so meek and scared.

cruz should smoke a pack before doin this so he sounds a lil more manly.

Good God THIS.

You can't label someone as THE BEST of anything unless you compare them to EVERYONE ELSE (that's what Best means folks, better than EVERYONE ELSE)

So unless you've seen big breakdowns and analyst by every other mma fighter... we can't possibly answer this question

edit: isn't more than enough to say "Dominick Cruz is a GREAT analyst/mind"

of course not, gotta say something like "the greatest OF ALL TIME!"
 
I became a fan of his when I saw him coach vs Faber on TUF. Very technical and just overall extremely knowledgeable. I was impressed.
 
He's up there with Frank Mir.
Also he's the most underrated champion in UFC as well, and imo the Bantamweight GOAT.
 
I'd like him to join rogan and goldbird,

it would be nice to get someone in there that actually knows what they are talking about.

k-flo is good too
 
IMO cruz is definitly not , he just said when a fighter gets emotions before a fight (anger), that it won't help them in a fight it will make them gas faster. I disagree with that statement sure an amateur who is all fired up might make that mistake but an experienced veteran like most guys in the UFC , it would make them more focused and motivated not everyone that is all riled up in a fight is gunna throw every punch till they gas out like a moron

cerrone vs diaz to name one.

the thing is we've seen it more than once. fighting is hugely emotional. especially when someone embarasses you in front of everyone.

like rousey definitely got underneath that booty goddess' head. forgot her neam
 
He's very intelligent, I like watching him analyze stuff
 
He is definitely sport wise/smart, but he is too monotoned to be considered GOAT imo

Emotional content, not anger... Now try again!!!
 
when has dom ever picked someone other than the favorite and was right about it?
 
I literally just posted the exact opposite in another thread. I think he's horrible. Comes off amateurish IMHO.

Considering all of the opposing opinions ITT, perhaps I haven't seen enough of his commentating.
