    Came across this video on YouTube and wanted to check it out. It’s no secret how high level his striking is, but some of the clips in this video are pretty amazing.



    The part from 2:38 to 3:22 is incredible. There’s so much going on in that one little exchange. My favorite thing about his offense is that he’s so aggressive but technically sound defensively at the same time.

    I still think Cody’s hands are too fast with too much power, but I wouldn’t be surprised if TJ walked away with the belt.

    Enjoy, guys.

    He's a great talent and I think he'll edge Garbrandt in a dec. to take the belt. I just hope he doesn't let his ego get the better of him and trades with Cody in the pocket needlessly. He did it in some spots in both Barao fights.

    Rooting for Dillashaw in this fight. I honestly think he's criminally underrated around these parts.

    Yep thats my only concern. That he just relies on punches. Against Cruz was the perfect example. As soon as he mixed it with kicks he outgunned him.

    Imo he will wear Garbrandt down with a focus on kicks, td threats mixed in with his fast paced punching.

    I have him winning a decision.

    Cody is on a whole new level, but sherdog lacks the knowledge :) also he is 5 years younger. Dillashaw will be out of his physical prime in 2 years.

    Thanks for posting. Love these breakdown videos. TJ doesn't get enough love around these parts. Can't wait for Cody-TJ. Probably the best matchup of the year.

    If TJ plays smart and chops Cody's legs, he'll take away power and speed of those hands.

    Rotting for the Snake.

    Cody is too dumb and agressive.

    I think TJ will finish Cody.

    He should fight a lot of this fight southpaw.

    Yeah three things really limit his chances against Cody (which are still good, but good be greater)
    He doesn't have great power and he probably thinks he has a better chin than he actually does, and against the harder faster and more skilled pocket puncher in Cody this will probably get him into trouble
    He falls in love with a technique in a fight and will chase it even if it puts him at a strategic disadvantage, such as chasing the headkick against Cruz and going away from things he was more effective with early, putting him in a hole scoring wise
    And he fights with a chip on his shoulder, which kind of ties into the above, he'll engage in the brawl just to prove he can - gave Lineker chances early even though he clearly dominated that fight, found himself swinging with Cruz and Barao even though he could have been fighting outside

    I think TJ will edge Garbrandt too, but he's got some habits that make me nervous in this particular matchup

    TJ, Cruz, and Cody are the best 3 fighters in the UFC right now, IMO.

    TJ and Cody are the best fighters, Cruz the best touch up dancer.
