MMA World Cup: Can Dominick Cruz Cruise to a Gold Medal?

Is this Cruz celebrating a gold medal? via WEC.TV

Dominick Cruz tooled Waggney Fabiano, like he has every opponent not named Faber, on his way to a likely gold medal. His opponent will be Brad Pickett who pulled off a minor upset against Takeya Mizugaki.

Gold Medal Match:

1. Dominick Cruz vs. 3. Brad Pickett

My Take: Who would have thought, watching him in Cage Rage all those years ago, that "One Punch" Pickett would come this far? But the road dead ends at Cruz. What good is one punch when there is no one there to land it on? Cruz glides...

Bronze Medal Match

2. Takeya Mizugaki vs. 4. Wagnney Fabiano

My Take: You know what? I just don't think Mizugaki is very good. Fabiano here for Acai lovers everywhere!

  1. USA: Dominick Cruz
  2. Asia/AUS: Takeya Mizugaki
  3. Europe:  Brad Pickett
  4. Brazil: Wagnney Fabiano
  5. Canada: Ivan Menjivar
  6. CIS and Assorted: Artemij Sitenkov
