Dominick Cruz proved in his victory over Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson that he can do it all. In his fight against Faber, Cruz avoided takedowns and stayed on the outside. In his fight against Johnson, he did the opposite, getting takedown after takedown, suplex after suplex, en route to a dominating unanimous decision victory.
Cruz is no one trick pony and he can change his style to match whatever his opponent brings, a very valuable skill.
Johnson, despite losing, still put on a great performance. His conditioning never faltered despite fighting at an unbelievable pace; he even was faster than Cruz who was thought to be the fastest man in the UFC! Even in the final round, Johnson looked like he did in the first conditioning-wise.
Still, his efforts weren't enough and Cruz was able to control him to earn a decision victory.
