TJ DILLASHAW: ONLY WAY FIGHT VS. DOMINICK CRUZ WILL BE SHORT IS IF I FINISH IT
By: Nicholas Goss, nesn.com
TJ Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz take different approaches when they step into the octagon.
Dillashaw, the reigning UFC bantamweight champion, isn’t afraid of coming out on the attack, looking for a quick decision. Cruz, on the other hand, plays a more defensive style and dances around a bit, waiting for his opponent to make a mistake and then punish it.
Cruz’s fights usually last a bit longer, too. Just two of his last 10 bouts went two rounds or fewer, while six of Dillashaw’s 13 career fights have gone less than three rounds.
