Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz continued to verbally pound current champion T.J. Dillashaw, during a recent appearance on UFC Tonight. This followed a verbal thrashing during a sitdown with Jon Anik.

“Talking is just talking,” said Cruz, as transcribed by David St. Martin for MMAFighting.com. “The fight is what really matters, but I’m just having fun keeping it real. I wasn’t talking trash. I was talking the truth. People are saying I’m talking trash. I wasn’t making anything up. I wasn’t saying anything foul to the guy. I was just telling him the way it is.”

“I just know he’s not that bright. He’s just not the smartest. He’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. He’s kind of a meathead jock is what I learned from that exchange. He just wanted nothing to do with talking. Man, I don’t necessarily want to be here talking to your ugly face either, but I’m here so you might as well talk to me.

“But he wouldn’t do it. I don’t know what’s wrong with the guy. We’re here. He’s like, ‘I’m here to fight. I’m not here to talk.’ Man, we’re here to talk. That’s why we’re in front of this camera. Why else are we here? If we were here to fight we’d be in the cage already. What’s wrong with you? It blew my mind.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
