    The only thing he had experience in before MMA was Junior High School wrestling according to wiki. what level of athlete is this guy? how come he didn't excel in any athletic pursuits before MMA? how is he able to succeed with no strong background in a discipline?

    Cruz did amateur wrestling in his high school years too.

    Luke Rockhold was a high school wrestler.
    Robbie Lawler was a high school wrestler.
    Mighty Mouse was a high school wrestler.
    Frank Mir was a high school wrestler.
    Miesha Tate was a high school wrestler.

    IN FACT, HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING... see sig.

    I didn't realize he only reached the high school level of competition at wrestling. In MMA he gets the takedowns like a good D1 wrestler. Very impressive stuff.

    It is new. The sport of MMA is new.

    Neo Footwork was started by Dominick Cruz in WEC. I believe Charlie Valencia fight but i'm probably wrong and it was earlier.

    GSP wasnt a wrestler coming into MMA and he became the best one.

    And why in the ever living fuck is there 2 threads right now about dom that you made within seconds?

    What is your obsession with Cruz? Your posting mmaaadddd threads about him you fucking weirdo.

    Bro

    do you even willie pep, bro


    Unless you're implying that it's adaptation in MMA makes it new... in which case EVERYTHING adapted to MMA should be called neo 'X' or 'Y'
    Which makes neofootwork even dumber

    Hahaha, what does that even mean?

    A+ as exceptional?

    or A+ as "well it's OK but basically shit, you should get A+++" ???

    :)
