    Dominick Cruz discussing how he 'modelled' his standup game on Muhammad Ali's footwork and gives an intelligent analysis on why Ali's movement-style is still very effective in today's MMA.

    Maybe just his attempt at greatness?

    Mohamed Ali put his opponents to sleep.

    Dominic Cruz puts the fans to sleep.

    It always amazes me, for a guy his size, how fast Ali's feet were when he did the " Ali shuffle ", and fire off punches off it. He was truly special the way he moved for a heavyweight.

    No secret here. This video has showcased it best. Video done a couple years ago.

    Ali was a HW.

    Dom has a more recent finish/KO than Jones too.

    BJJ Scout is the best.
