    Good fight with the right decision from the judges.. Cruz was elusive as usual achieving several good take downs of very short duration thanks to the effort and good moves from TJ to get out as fast as possible. Cruz deserves the win but he should has to take really care of his existing injuries that are diminishing his performance.
