White reveals that Cruz fought with broken hand

source: espn.co.uk

"You know one of the things I respect about the kid?" White said. "He's got a broken hand and had one the entire fight. He broke his [left] hand and is going to have surgery.

"Not only did he not stop fighting and keep coming up 100 per cent, he doesn't even f***ing say anything about it. He goes through an entire press conference and doesn't say anything about his hand."

Cruz was not present to explain his silence, but White recalled the conversation between the two parties.

"'What's the difference? Who cares?'" Cruz apparently told the president. "I'm going to have surgery and come back.'

"You should see his hand right now. His whole middle of his hand is all swollen. His knuckle looks nasty. He's going to get surgery next week."

Now one of my fav fighters even without the broken hand.The fact that he was able to adjust and dominate a style that could have been his most difficult with such mastery was simply awesome.I know im in the minority though, beinga fan of showing mastery of technique in MMA. Imagine if fans in other sports were the same.

Hell of a guy that one! A true fighter and all his detractors clearly know less and less of what the hell they're talking about.

I met him and it was a pleasure. Really a nice guy and I love his fighting style because it is so unique. He has earned his spot and it's fun to watch him fight.
