    After seeing Cody out class Cruz, I think he does the same to TJ.

    I'm thinking middle rounds. Definitely thinking it won't make it to a decision if Cody goes all out

    really good fight, tough call, but I'll go with Garbrandt, better boxer.

    Hoping TJ wins, Garbrandt is the typical son of a single mom and looked really stupid on tuf.

    Yes & No.
    If the RNC is not applied correctly, it may have a direct crushing action on the windpipe. Proper RNC is to choke the blood vessels on the either side of the neck, stopping the blood & oxygen flow to the brain.

    Yeah the heel hook one is strange. I'm pretty sure I've seen heel hook finishes

    Agree, I can't wait for this fight myself. TJ is one of the most skilled fighters in the game imo and Cody is super fast and powerful with really crisp boxing. Personally I think TJ is just a much better fighter all around and will end up throwing a beating on Cody but I am very excited for this fight because Cody can drop most anyone in his division if he catches them flush so it should be very exciting. I'm not interested in the nonsense drama of it because plenty of the Alpha Male guys have been going out to train with TJ since this whole nonsense and you haven't seen Faber or Cody shit talk any of them so i'll leave that TMZ while I root for TJ get that belt back. I dont think he lost it to DOM in the first place that fight was pretty much even in my eyes which defaults back to thechamp but we have seen worse judging.

    Whaaaattt
    Heel hooks are definitely legal.
    How often do refs even enforce this stuff anyway, like the slamming as a form of sub defence we see plenty and we've seen people be spiked before without much warning. There was even a thread on it today

    A real champion vs #1 contender fight, I am stoked for it too. It's funny everyone I know that watches MMA refers to TJ as snake or snake in the grass it's fucking hilarious.

    I think Cody ends this fairly quick in the fight.

    I feel Cody wins this. And Bisping beats GSP.

    Nice 50 pound double.

    It's about blood chokes vs. air chokes. Rear naked chokes are blood chokes, cutting off blood flow through the carotid artery to the brain. Any pressure on the windpipe is indirect. Air chokes, such as the stereotypical thumbs in the throat, cut off the air flow through the trachea. That's not allowed in MMA.

    This is definitely my most anticipated fight that has been announced , Can't wait for it , I'm rooting for TJ and think he can get it done , the Guy is a great fighter very well rounded and is always looking to improve fight to fight .

    for me, this is a classic situation where I am really looking forward to the fight and really dreading every aspect of the pre-fight yap yap.

    the whole Alpha Team bitch drama is cringe worthy.

    both fighters are inarticulate and slow witted (I don't know them. they may be really smart. but they don't talk good on tv)

    on the sporting side, it is definitely the fight to make for that division. I thought that Cruz would handle Cody and so I have underestimated him recently. Maybe I am overreacting the other direction by favoring him now. I see Cody as the bigger and younger fighter with more power. His clear win over Cruz showed me that he can handle quicker "movement" fighters so I struggle to see where TJ has an advantage.

    I will be cheering for TJ though. Hope that it is a good scrap

    Should have tossed him into the deep end.
