    Default Dominick Cruz responds to Dana White's claims that he could have returned sooner

    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/11/2...vs-renan-barao

    UFC president Dana White recently opined that Cruz had delayed his return a little longer than needed in order to shake off any traces of cage rust before signing on to face Barao:

    Cruz is 200 percent. I shouldn't say this, but I will, because this is what I f--- do to myself. I think that Cruz has kind of been stalling. I think Cruz has dragged this out longer than needed to be because I think he's working extra hard on working off the ring rust. Doing the things, that, this just came to our attention a few weeks ago, that Cruz possibly could have fought much sooner. Which makes the fight even more interesting.

    Cruz was in New York on Thursday, and spoke to Ariel Helwani about White's comments:

    I don't think he meant it that way, I really don't.

    I think what Dana was trying to say was not that I've been waiting and doing nothing. Him saying that means to me, he's not saying that I've been sitting back waiting on my hands, I've been working to come back. What's he's trying to say is that my knee is fine. I've had the time to prepare, ring rust is not going to be an issue and my knee is not going to be an issue.

    Cruz's last title defense came on October 1, 2011 when he earned a unanimous decision over Demetrious Johnson. A torn ACL during filming of The Ultimate Fighter: Live, and two surgeries on that damaged left knee have kept Cruz out of the Octagon since that title defense.

    I'm sure it has. I haven't watched a Vlog or any of the parts of press conferences when he talks for a couple years now. I have absolutely zero interest in hearing him talk. I've scanned some of his bullshit in print when it seems like it's a legitimate story or when a fighter I really like is involved, but I stand by what I've said for the last 5 years: MMA would take a huge leap forward if dana fell off the planet.


    The best thing Lorenzo could do would be to hire someone to smack dana in the face with a rolled up newspaper every time he says something stupid. It would probably take a few months before he grasped the concept, but the quality of his vids would be immediately and exponentially increased.

    I think the UFC would be better off without him at this point, yes.

    Not getting worked up at all, we're just discussing how the public face of a company should act a little more professional.
