Former Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz went on a secret trip to various U.S. military bases around the world, TMZ Sports reports.
His mission? To train service members to fight like a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
"We had to be so careful and so quiet. Everywhere I went, I could not Snapchat anything I was doing or out any social media until after we had left that area. People are after this; it is a very dangerous situation we were in. We flew around on a C-17 all over the world." Cruz said.
Cruz talked about his trip, which was sponsored by the USO, on TMZ Sports, and explained the reality of trading blows with a four-star general. Watch it here:
It is becoming increasingly apparent that competitors, such as Russia and China, desire to influence international norms and alter the behaviors of allies, partners and Arctic-focused countries for the benefit of these competitor nations.
Drone strikes have also been relatively effective at limiting collateral damage compared to other strike options—reducing deaths among both civilians on the ground as well as U.S. servicemembers who might otherwise take part in a ground raid. Needless to say, a more precise missile will only serve to keep lowering civilian casualties.
