Dominick Cruz would move up to fight Jose Aldo


"I'm not gonna turn down anything like that. I'm not gonna turn down a rubber match, I'm not gonna turn down a fight with Jose Aldo. Man if they pay me the right money I'll go fight anybody at heavyweight. I'll run around like a chicken. I'll run around like I'm trying to catch a chicken in that cage, but I'll get through it. I just want to fight the best guys on the planet."

If Aldo catches Cruz like faber did he would finish, period.

UG News sensationalizes too much shit that doesn't need to be sensationalized.

 I would absolutely love it if this fight happened. I think Aldo would have trouble with Cruz's movement just like everyone else, but if he can time him coming in just a few times, he has the power to end the fight.

 I am usually pretty cautious with calling fights. I always things are more balanced then most people seem to think.This is one where i dare to be a little more explicit,Also would take this without to much trouble. The only chance Cruz has against Aldo is through the use of his wrestling.And though his take-downs again Faber where semi impressive he was not able to hold Faber there. Plus this really is Cruz his natural weight so i think he would lose in terms of the strenght advantage if he would move up (grappling is about so much more then just strenght but it will play a part). For Aldo his approach to the fight would be quit simple,especially if it would be a championship fight (a main event type of fight, which would be highly likely). He would just have to search for his reach in the first round (Andy Souwer style),being able to do this because Cruz has hardly to no KO power.Then he would destroy his legs and subsequently his footwork in the second and third and hunt for the KO (avoid the take-down attempts from Cruz) in the 4 and 5.It would be a fun fight to watch but a bad match up for Cruz so he should concentrate a little more on dominating his division for a bit longer.Still it is admirable that he wants to try.

I think Cruz would frustrate, tire, and beat Aldo.

Aldo was barely able to fight he was so sick against Hominick...Hardcore MMA fans know how fucking good Aldo really is....He would make Dominique eat the canvas.
