Dominick Cruz, former UFC Bantamweight Champion has something in common with Ronda Rousey, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.

That common factor is that during the UFC 207, they both went down defeated by their various opponents. For Cruz however, it was worse as he lost a title that night.

Cruz has some advice for Rousey, who currently is in the midst of two fight losing streak. His advice however, is from his own life experience.

Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience, Cruz said: “We’re all putting so much into this one thing that we think that is our everything.”

He wants her to put more energy into loving herself than the fighting career.

“It sounds cheesy, but if you put all that energy towards loving yourself and not the fight career, the fight career will still be there just as heavy as it is. She’s using the fighting as her identity. With that championship belt, she is Ronda Rousey, the Ronda Rousey,” he added.

Cruz also said that nobody knew who she was without the championship belt, and that it was the same thing that happened to him when he lost his belt. He feels that she is counting in the belt to know who she is.

Going on, he also says that he gained this experience at the period he lost his belt as he did not know who he was anymore and it was that time he was able to figure out his issues.

Since their defeats at the UFC 207, neither Cruz nor Rousey have competed in any fights. For Cruz, he is still figuring out what path to toe concerning his future in the sport. However, he still feels heartbroken for the loss experienced by Rousey.

Cruz will be seen next at the UFC 209 in the commentators taking place on Saturday, March 4.
