UC NEWS – Miguel Torres Thinks He Has The Tools To Beat Cruz


“I think I pose the biggest threat to him as far as anybody at 135. … I don’t know who he’s fought with good leg kicks, that kick to the leg a lot, but I know a lot of the guys that I train with, that move like him, you hit them in the leg a couple of times, they don’t move as much in the later rounds. And when he gets that takedown, I don’t think he’s fought anybody that’s as dangerous off their back as I am. I think I pose a lot of threats for him on the ground. … I pose problems for him that he hasn’t seen yet.”

Dethroned bantamweight kingpin, Miguel Torres, talks to the guys over at sherdog.com about how he feels he matches up with the current champ, Dominick Cruz.

Since dropping to the bantamweight division Cruz has been unstoppable, he has rarely even lost a round let alone a fight. However, the man who many thought at one point to be the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world believes that his combination of leg kicks and ground work is enough to get the job done.

Even if it were true, it would appear as if the division has left Torres behind and if he was able to best Cruz in a title match just due to the stylistic matchup would he be able to survive his first attempt at defending the strap?

My guess is no.
