Here are 5 things we gained from that call.

Dominick Cruz believes he’s the Michael Jordan of 135 division

At some time in the call, the former champ specified that he is the Michael Jordan of the 135- pounddivision He’s basically calling himself the best bantamweight of perpetuity. That’s arguable for sure, particularly given that the division is soyoung If you’re pitting him versus the other former bantamweight champions (Renan Barao, TJ Dillashaw, Cody Garbrandt and Cejudo) he’s quickly in GOAT contention.

Henry Cejudo is still utilizing womanly slurs to insult men

If you were taking notice of the insults that the “king of cringe” was gushing you may have captured on that more than a few of them were female-based. That sort of insult was so last century, why are we still insulting men by indicating there is some sort of womanly element to them.

Here are simply a few of the important things Cejudo stated:

DominiqueMiss UniverseDon’t break a nail

We weren’t the only ones to observe this either.

The reality that Cejudo tries to utilize “Dominique” and “princess” as insults towards Dom Cruz is idiotic and simply gross.

As much garbage talk that decreased in the first half of the call, there was none (A minimum of none to the challengers on the call) from the main eventers. There’s some shared regard there which indicates it’s going to be one hell of a battle.

Dominick Cruz wishes to make a distinction

We’ll let this quote represent itself.

” I actually take a look at this a lot various than belts and all the important things we have. When you have a platform, it’s more about how you can make a distinction in these times. I look at this as a time where I can make a big distinction. When there’s 33 million Americans that simply submitted for joblessness advantages and can’t see their households given that mid-March, what’s the worth of champ belts or Olympic gold medals. 2,417 [sic] Americans passed away in the United States. There’s no vaccine for COVID-19 coming, most likely no end in sight. You understand, so I have actually remained in the concern of what’s the worth of belts, or perhaps Olympic gold medals unless you can utilize it to make a distinction in the lives and in the service of humankind.”
