Tonight at UFC on Versus 6, Dominick Cruz defended his UFC bantamweight title against Demetrious Johnson.
Cruz proved tonight that sometimes having awkward and weird movements can work to your advantage.
Cruz is not the only fighter who has had some questionable movements in MMA.
Here's a look at some of the other fighters who may make you wonder what exactly they're doing.

Lyoto Machida is one of the best light heavyweights today.
He’s also one of the most difficult to go against.
Machida's weird Karate stance and elusive fighting style often frustrates fighters and fans alike.
Cruz is one of the fastest fighters in MMA.
He also does some of the most awkward movements in the cage.
Cruz doesn’t have a traditional fighting stance. Mix this with his constant movement and quickness and it can be very confusing to his opponents.
Before Clay Guida even enters the Octagon, he’s bouncing around and letting his much larger brother slap him across the face.
From the moment the fight actually begins to perhaps when he makes his way to the back after it’s all said and done, Guida is moving.
Add the fact that he looks like a caveman and Guida gives a whole new meaning to hype man.
Brian Ebersole is one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC.
He’s also one of the most Awkward.
From his chest hair that’s shaved in the shape of an arrow pointed up at his chin, to his unorthodox capoeira like cartwheel kicks, Ebersole can confuse just about anybody.
Ebersole was caught in an awkward situation in his last bout with a speedo wearing Dennis Hallman.
Is there anybody more Awkward than Keith Jardine?
What was once described by Joe Rogan as “herky-jerky” movement, Jardine’s movements are spasmodic and unpredictable.
Whether he wins or loses, watching Jardine in a fight is never pretty.
