For the longest time I've been saying that Dominick Cruz has the best footwork in MMA today. But, when most people think of the 135lbs champ Dominick Cruz, they think Dance Dance Revolution.
I don't know who made this video breaking down his footwork but I couldn't pass up the chance to share it with the Mania community.
When you see this video of his talented footwork, it's no wonder he got choked up on "UFC Tonight" when talking about returning from a possible career ending injury.
"I'm having my few days of crybaby time per-se. I've allowed myself to be mad and be sad, you know, you go through the, 'why me stage?' What's the point, you know? If the fans can know how much [their support] helps me, they'll know right now: Thank you guys so much. I do this for you guys and I'm in a hurt spot right now. And the love that I get from the fans right now [choking back tears] is really keeping me up and keeping me optimistic. My glass is half full right now because the fans have my back, they want to see me back and that means everything to me. This is the toughest thing that I have been through. And I'm completely heartbroken to let down the people who wanted to see me fight, to let down the UFC and to let down anyone in the Bantamweight division. I'll be back. I'm not done. That's a promise, a guarantee."
I can't wait to see the Bantamweight champ back in action, dancing his way to victory. Get well champ.
Do you have a new appreciation for "The Dominator's" footwork?
