    RD 1-Cruz
    RD 2-Cruz
    RD 3- Cody
    RD 4-Cody (here some people say they scored 10-8, yes he had a knockdown but he didn't follow up with much more and Cruz immediately recovered and got back to his feet, clear round for Cody though)
    RD 5-Cruz

    48-47 Cruz, if you give round 4 a 10-8 for Cody this fight would be a draw and Cruz would have defended regardless...

    Even Cruz doesn't think Cruz won.

    I haven't watched in a few months but I remember Cody winning 3 rounds pretty easily, I wasn't upset with the decision and I was rooting for Cruz at that time.

    Round 4 was a 10-8 and Cody won round 1.

    That's a 48-46 for Garbrandt, 48-47 at best (or worst, depending on where you're standing, lol). Pretty clear win for No Love and I think even Dominick himself would agree.

    Cody literally toyed with him, and let him get up from multiple knockdowns. There is no way cruz won.

    How did Cody win round 1? Cruz more leg kicks, both got a takedown and Cruz more overall strikes. One of the judges gave him that round tho

    I was much closer than people remember that is true

    But there is no way in hell Cruz won that fight and Dom would tell you that himself

    Cody definitely did more damage. The dude hits like a truck.

    Cruz did land more according to fightmetric but Cody got a takedown.

    Under the current scoring rules it could have been a shocker.

    More damage doesn't mean he shouldve won. GSP's face after the Shields fight was a mess and he still 50-45'ed his ass.

    In round 1 for example Cruz kicked the shit out of Cody's legs. More damage than Cody's punches? No but the points are still scored

    Cruz didn't win, and what you think is irrelevant. The man stood in front of all us, and admitted defeat. He lost. LOL
