Dominick Cruz dances on the grave of ring rust. Not only does Cruz dance on graves he does so despite having three different surgeries to repair his injured ACL. Modern medicine gave Cruz the ability to comeback from not one, not two, but three career threatening injuries. For a defensive fighter that relies on speed and movement to frustrate his opponent Dominick Cruz took four years off from championship level completion then rolled back into the cage and didn’t miss a single beat.
It doesn’t make any sense. How can “Three ACL Surgery” Cruz be just as good as “2011” Cruz?

Fresh off embarrassing former champ Renan Barao, a younger more active TJ Dillashaw lost his UFC title to a walking injury report. Franken-Cruz before 2011 and after 2016 wins with fancy footwork. You can’t win if you can’t hit him. Marvel at Cruz’s footwork. How many Achilles tendons would the average human tear if they tried to replicate Cruz’s prefight foot shuffle in the mirror?
