Cruz vs. Jorgensen Wiki Update Wiki

Dominick Cruz etched his name in the MMA history books at WEC 53 on December 16, 2010, becoming both the last ever World Extreme Cagefighting Bantamweight Champion, and the first ever UFC Bantamweight Champion, by retaining his title in the WEC's last-ever event before its absorption into the UFC. Cruz also solidified his status as the top 135 pound fighter in the world to close out 2010, putting on a scintillating and impeccable all-around performance against tough contender Scott Jorgensen. After sweeping all three judges' scorecards 50-45 for a Unanimous Decision victory, Cruz left the cage draped in two belts, bringing the end to one era in the bantamweight division while ushering in a newer, bigger stage for MMA's smallest major men's weight class.


Cruz told the cameras in the pre-fight lead-ins that he felt disrespected and underappreciated given his status as the undisputed world bantamweight champ, and he fought like it. Cruz set the tone early with his trademark elusive and darting standup, tagging the more powerful but slower Jorgensen with a blur of jabs, hooks and stinging leg kick combinations. While Jorgensen swung helplessly at the empty air, Cruz was already gone, using his superior reach in conjunction with his extraordinary reflexes to put on a multi-round boxing clinic.


As the fight wore on and Cruz hit his comfort zone, he increasingly began to weave takedowns into his standup game, where he had as much if not more success driving Jorgensen to the canvas and punishing him with elbows and inside punches from top position. Cruz utilized one of two moves -- a clean, driving double-leg takedown and a clever knee tap transition -- to drop Jorgensen, a skilled wrestler in his own right, to the ground with repeated ease.


Jorgensen, for his part, fought gamely and his conditioning held up all five rounds under the Cruz onslaught. The few strikes he managed to land in the standup game did damage, reddening Cruz's face in the first and drawing blood on Cruz in the 2nd and 3rd. But the damage was far too infrequent to faze the Champion, who looked dialed in from the starting bell and stayed in the zone the full 25 minutes of action.
