The Dominator. His fighting approach is very unique. He slowly crawls into his opponents’ range of attacking, leaning his torso towards his opponent, studying their reactions, and getting a feel of their timing while he is moving and switching between the southpaw and orthodox stances. When the opponent tries to throw a jab, he easily slips it by leaning his torso back to the normal position.

While moving and switching stances, he throws fast and unexpected jabs to disturb his opponent concentration while they trying to figure out what his next move would be. When he sees that his opponent associated with a certain behavior, he surprises them with a powerful right hand, or easily takes him down, as he also a powerful wrestler.

Unlike many UFC fighters, Cruz is a powerful stand-up fighter as well as a wrestling master. So he can finish the fight either while standing up or on the ground.

Cruz’s record is full of victories over some of the best fighters in the history of MMA, Like Urijah Faber, T.J. Dillashaw, and Demetrious Johnson.
