'The Dominator' fired the first shots on The MMA Hour when he referred to the reigning champion as a 'wannabe'. Both Cruz and Dillashaw stifle their opponents with movement, feints, and stance switches, but the Alliance MMA standout feels his Team Alpha Male rival offers a cheap imitation of his unique style.

    Joanna was on the Facebook-equivalent a month and a half ago. And that was fighting for the title.
