"Kenny Florian, quit copying and pasting man!"

That was Dominick Cruz, at the end of his post-fight speech after his big win over T.J. Dillashaw. He took a bit of a jab at Florian's recent controversy with plagiarism, which was an infraction that got him suspended. When asked about the swipe at Kenny, Cruz did explain after that it was just a friendly 'poke' at his fellow Fox analyst.

"That's friendly fire. I like Kenny, you know," Cruz said during the post-fight press conference. "He didn't pick me in the fight. He gave me really no chance in this fight, so it's just a little poke."

"Nothing big. He's got great hair."

Cruz edged Dillashaw to regain the UFC title he never lost in the Octagon. It was a closely contested bout with multiple rounds that could've gone either way.
