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.”
