Dominick Cruz's leg...

I looked around a little to see if this had been posted; didn't see anything so here it is.

This dude has a long way to go IMO. I know he's had twice the lay off but GSP's leg didn't look horribly imbalanced to his other after his surgery/rehab. It looks like Cruz's legs don't even belong to the same body.

I realize the brace is putting compression on the leg but it still looks horribly under developed.


Not really a Cruz fan, but don't wish injury on anyone. Hopefully he can come back from this... so Barao can whoop dat ass.

I don't think he'll have too much of an issue to bounce back.

Being that his entire fighting style consists of bouncing... I hope you're right for his sake.

He had two surgeries; it's just muscle atrophy. He should be able to get it right just fine as long as his last surgery takes.

The most important thing is to him to heal properly. That being said, that leg will take a good while to grow back to minimum strenght/toughness. The difference is ridiculous.

I think cruz is finis as a fighter it's hard enough to come back from an acl injury yet alone two of them. With his style I don't think he'll be the same fighter again.
