We know Conor McGregor is suppose to be the best trash talker in the game, but Cruz is coming in as a close second. The cerebral assassin strikes again and this time it’s a headshot to the Alpha Male crew.
In a recent UFC interview for their upcoming bout this Friday on UFC 207, headlined by Ronda Rousey vs. Amanda Nunes, Dominick Cruz and Cody Garbrandt exchanged in a war of words. One of them left in a huff and the other sat calmly and continued to narrate the situation, and the one walking away wasn’t Dominick Cruz.
The craziest part of this video is how effortless Dominick Cruz was in his trash talk. Everything flowed naturally, he didn’t even break a sweat. When he caught Cody Garbrandt on a point, especially an emotional one, he just kept hammering it home and eventually Garbrandt snapped.
What we like about Cruz is that he spits ether, breaking his opponents down to the core, not just as fighters, but human being. His remarks are stinging and truly hit home on a very personal level. Not like the bragadocious remarks of a Conor McGregor, his statements are truthful and direct, no fat necessary. What we don’t like about Cruz’s trash talk is that very same thing. While it’s nice to get inside your opponent’s head, you don’t want to get too personal, as you can make some real enemies. Talking about past concussions as well as the wives and girlfriends of others are taboo in the fight game and get you in a real mess. Overall, an A- for both sessions, losing points for the concussion talk.
Obviously your boy Dominick “Domin8ter” Cruz has been reading up on his Machiavelli, but is all really fair in love and MMA?
Let us know what you think of the trash talk below. Did the man with the hands of stone get owned?
