The reality of a fighter is that the one who can get up even after he faces the punches and the setbacks, make a mark in the world and rise above all and those who cannot tolerate this are usually carried away and never have a chance in a sport like this. Dominick Cruz has been facing and tolerating every pain the game has given him in the last three years.
In a sport as violent as MMA the injuries are a mere thing now but Team Alliance got a shock as they had no idea how devastating n setback that seemed very little can actually be. Today athletes even come back from knee injuries and so Cruz was pretty confident that he would come back to the Octagon very soon. Unfortunately, it did not work out as he expected as one injury led to several other setbacks that could destroy his career. His determination showed the world that there is a life beyond self-pity.
Now that he has recovered and there is only two weeks left to the night of the fight, Cruz is having a different feeling. The last time he was in Octagon, he was the best bantamweight champion. He became the last fighter to hoist the UFC 135pound title and got the WEC crown. Between the years 2008-2011, Cruz has given the world the best performances ever seen one after another and showed that he had the skill to have the tile of being legendary. Although at first he won his games depending on speed, athletics and wrestling, with time he learnt to make his footwork the most strong point in a fight as the opponent always has a tough time solving the riddle.
Cruz says that his goal is to create history in the world of mixed martial arts and also become the best fighter that has ever competed. He wants to earn his position back by entering the mix all over again.
