UFC: Cruz keeps bantamweight title

Dominick Cruz retained the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight title with a unanimous decision victory over Demetrious Johnson at the UFC on Versus 6 card in Washington, D.C., on Saturday night.

Cruz won all five rounds on two scorecards and four of the five on the final card by securing several takedowns in each of the last three rounds.

He nearly finished several submission attempts on Johnson, who negated Cruz’s usual standup advantage with his own speed and elusiveness.

Also, Stefan Struve submitted Pat Barry in the second round of a heavyweight bout.
