Lloyd Irvin: Dominick Cruz Is The Floyd Mayweather Of MMA

Team Lloyd Irvin coach and jiu-jitsu black belt Lloyd Irvin spoke to MMA Nation this week about cornering and training UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz as well as UFC newcomer Mike Easton.

With respect to Cruz, Irvin makes the bold claim that Cruz is the Floyd Mayweather of mixed martial arts. Whatever you make of the comparison, Irvin talks about the movement of Cruz as well as the champion's footwork, preparation, work ethic and overall ability.

As for Easton, Irvin addresses how Easton can get over the two-year training absence, dealing with last-minute opponent changes and fighting in Easton's backyard.
