    Ya dude the greatest bantamweight fighter of all time is super grateful to have a moron give him fighting advice from behind a keyboard. This is a time in which you should begin to reevalute how you are choosing to live your life.

    I’m so glad Cruz got exposed. His style is so ugly but effective but against a true boxer he got exposed and even out slicked.

    I love Cruz’s style and man if he had KO power he would be the GOAT. I feel he has ring rust and it showed in this fight. On top of that, I feel he had an off night and that can be contributed to Cody’s excellent preparation or just… Read more »

    think it was closer than what the judges scored it. 48-47 atleast.

    You”re not giving Cody a 10-8 round for knocking him down 3 times. That’s where you get the 48-46.

    I will admit I thought Garbrandt had nothing more than a punchers chance. But he outsmarted Cruz and beat him at his own game.

    10-9, 10-9, 9-10, 8-10, 10-9

    I dont know how the official score cards scored the last round to cody! clearly it was dom’s. The biggest factor in this fight was the headbutt. I think in a rematch, dom should win.

    I think you’re delusional … headbutt was nothing. 3 knockdowns and Dom couldn’t touch him.

    Mo you are one of the few that actually watched the fight and didn’t let the Cody nut hugger commentators influence your decision. Also that headbutt disoriented Cruz more than he or anyone else noticed. After that his timing was off and he was getting tagged. That last round is… Read more »
