WEC 53 Results: Dominick Cruz defends his title, and becomes the new UFC Bantamweight ChampionPosted on December 16, 2010, 10:13 PM by Anton Gurevich
WEC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz proved critics wrong once again, with a spectacular Unanimous Decision victory over the credible Scott Jorgensen. Cruz dominated Jorgensen throughout the five rounds of the fight, giving judges no room for errors on all-45-50 scorecards.
Cruz demonstrated a whole package of a fighter. Explosive takedowns, impressive head movement, flying knees, leg kicks, hands speed... you name it. Scott Jorgensen was chasing the reigning Champ, constantly failing to find his pace during a fight. Cruz managed to rock Jorgensen on several occasion, but the tough contender managed to bounce back again and again.
In the end, Dominick Cruz is more than worthy of his new UFC Bantamweight title. The champ called out Urijah Faber in his post-fight interview, what could cataclyst naming the two as coaches for the 13th season of The Ultimate Fighter. This way or another, I personally believe Dominick Cruz is one of the greatest fighters today. Urijah Faber could be the last obstacle before "The Dominator" completely cleans-up the UFC Bantamweight division.
