I have no idea why people pretended that his striking was the best in MMA. We had idiots here believing that his striking was on a whole other level, that it's the evolution of MMA. Boy were you people wrong. Finally Cruz fights an average size fighter and he gets exposed. The mans loopy, weird ass punches are a joke. Anybody with = size destroys him, because his striking isn't technical!!!!!! Yes, his footwork is awkward, but it's not amazing...When you are the same size, Cruz can't control his range. I just love it, how we had all these pretentious people saying "Cruz is a technical masterpiece, he is the evolution of MMA, if you don't like em, you're not a fan" "Wow he is so smart, just look at his footwork, and his amazing looping punches" I hope you pretentious fake experts, feels like dumbasses today.
