Rodolfo Cruz is a Mexican mixed martial artist from Monterrey, Mexico. He currently competes in the heavyweight division of the Japanese promotion KUMITE.

BackgroundEdit

As mentioned by Randy in HCL 8, Cruz was sacked from his first job as a paper boy for kicking newspapers into peoples houses, and once killed a man when a paper hit him in the head. As mentioned by Leighton in HCL 4, Cruz was sacked from his second job as a paparazzi paper editor for punching Sean Penn in the face, no matter how much Sean Penn deserved it. Both jobs have highlighted the knockout power of Rodolfo. He's been known for using his big punches to score devastating knockouts in both of his HCL victories.

Rodolfo suffered a three match losing streak starting from when he lost to Leo Serengetti. The loses have highlighted his temper and his impulsiveness, which he has strove to wear down and train on his focus.

Cruz reads 5 papers daily, including the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and reads one more on fight nights.

Cruz was released from his HCL contract on Friday, November 29, 2013, after six fights and a record of 2-4.
