Follow him behind the scenes with reporters, including MMA Junkie Victory in split decision over Casey Kenney At UFC Apex, Cruz (23-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) explained the reason for the unusual callout.
“To be honest, he probably likes being connected this way. It’s actually a benefit to him, so he should thank me,” he started. “When we take pictures with Conor McGregor, we’re now friends with Conor McGregor, right? Take a photo with Dominick Cruz and ask him to comment on my page and we’ll be in an era where we look like friends. Well, I may be your friend, but as they say, you can’t use me to gain “influence.” “
Molenkamp’s Instagram and Facebook pages have a large number of photos and videos taken by the UFC Fighter. It’s said that a former bantamweight champion has granted an exception.
“Look at my face, look at my body. I’m beaten to die to make a living,” he said. “So when you try to force me, you say that if I don’t comment on your page, if I don’t interview you, you’re going to take what pays my bill Do you want to send me a text message? What are we doing? Monsters are sponsoring me, not you. “
Cruz made a comment when asked if he felt trapped in an approval deal with an energy drink brand.
“It’s not tied to a contract.” It forced him to influence and to hype him if I wanted to make money. The monster pays me. “
He even revealed that others, including UFC President Dana White, had experienced similar problems at Morenkamp.
“Dana White is complaining to this guy. Dana White went to this guy’s page and said something-they ignored it as it didn’t happen,” Cruz said. Told. “So I’m not the first person to say something. Dana also said something. Ask him about it.”
However, Cruz claimed that Morenkamp’s call was genuine and said he wanted to take advantage of the situation forever by making matchups between pairs a charity match.
“So this was a callout because he calls himself a professor. He weighs me 100 pounds, and I can put this in a mutually beneficial situation. It seems possible, “he said. “Let’s have a charity event. The monster chooses a charity and we discard it. He says he has three professional battles. Let’s prove it. Where your mouth is. Put your money in. You have a little little guy calling you for charity. There’s nothing else. Why? “
