I have a feeling that if Cruz gets destroyed, he may not come again. I'm not saying he'll retire on the spot. The guy has a full time gig as an analyst in which he's getting paid a great amount i assume. Most fighters with a job like that would have trouble finding motivation to keep competing as a pro after the the constant injuries he's had. His only motivation was to get back a belt he never lost and prove that he's always been #1. If he gets starched, i think he'll start having doubts on competing. He'll probably try anyways, but if he gets injured again, he may hang it up.
I think he will retire regardless of outcome
choch - I think he will retire regardless of outcomeNot if he wins. He has to settle the trilogy with Faber. Im sure he still wants that fight.
