Dominick Cruz, you’re better than this. Not everyone can be a well-adjusted youngish man who has spent more time in a doctor’s office than Sakuraba. And while you were in those waiting rooms in your lil paper smock, waiting for various people to touch your knee gently, you’re able to read wikipedia pages about broadcasting, and you had time to bone up on using your mouth instead of your fists. For years! You’ve had one fight in the time it takes the average person to complete college.
So don’t make fun of TJ Dillashaw for being dumb. You are what you eat, and you’re also who you hang out with. We all know Team Alpha Male isn’t the most intelligent group of bros, but damn it, they look good without shirts. It’s okay. Let your fists metaphorically do the talking. Let your footwork speak volumes. Let your weird torso shout to the rafters.
Just don’t say stuff like you just said on FS 1:
“I just know he’s not that bright. He’s just not the smartest. He’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. He’s kind of a meathead jock is what I learned from that exchange. He just wanted nothing to do with talking. Man, I don’t necessarily want to be here talking to your ugly face either, but I’m here so you might as well talk to me.
“But he wouldn’t do it. I don’t know what’s wrong with the guy. We’re here. He’s like, ‘I’m here to fight. I’m not here to talk.’ Man, we’re here to talk. That’s why we’re in front of this camera. Why else are we here? If we were here to fight we’d be in the cage already. What’s wrong with you? It blew my mind.”
