    Can't wait for the haters to shit on TJ when Goaty wins the belt back.

    Wouldn't even be surprised if that happened. Also if Cormier loses to Stipe people will most likely turn on him as well.

    Cody lost a lot of fans with the Van Damm tantrum too

    Van Damm should have been more careful with the champ. :)

    TJ has been exposed/proven to go way too hard on training partners. Even guys that have 1 or 0 fights under their belt, TJ goes 90% on them. Not cool

    Another thing that hurt Cody was his time on TUF. That's hurt a lot of fighters over the years when it comes to their public image. Cody, Ronda, Joanna, Matt Hughes

    Shrug...any evidence that it is the same people doing this? Sherdog is a community, not a collective.


    Garbrandt is a good fighter, he hurt TJ bad when they fought. He isn't a can or anything.

    Yep, if you didn't know a thing about either of these guys and watched TUF 25, you'd think TJ was all pro and Garbrandt was a clown. We have the luxury of knowing there's a history between camps, and TJ is no angel. But still, I'm sure that affected Cody's rep.

    Anyway, who cares, both guys are awesome in the cage and I'd love to watch them go again.

    Yes and I called their fairweather shifty fan asses out about it in another thread.

    I am a fan of both but very much wanted TJ to win. I think I was one of 5 people defending TJ during the alpha male bullshit.

    Now that's mma, people 90% flip to the hot hand everytime lIke rats jumping a sinking ship. Look at Francis where's his fans now? Sherdog had alot of love for bisping beats gsp idea, now he's the worst MW in history.
    Watch Sunday threads IF yoel tko rocksalt like I expect.

    Come on bro you’ve been here long enough you know how it is

    If you lose you suck and were never any good anyways and whoever beat you is the greatest ever and you’ll never be able to beat them

    Unless you win a rematch in which case the other guy just Got lucky

    Do I look new here?

    I was referring to after he became champion up until he lost to TJ. He was praised a lot more than criticized while TJ took most of the hate. Now that Cody lost that has flipped. You are correct though that before he won the title he did get a lot of hate.

    They are both amazing fighters. I root for both of them in the cage and I really want to see a rematch.

    They don't seem like stellar human beings, but most amazing fighters aren't, for reasons which should be obvious.

    Whatever his flaws, Garbrandt has clearly been good to that Maddux Maple kid, and that's a decent thing for anyone to do.

    But again, no one should watch MMA for role models.

    I don't feel much has changed here. People admit the fight could've gone either way.

    TJ is still snake and Cody is still necktat.

    Dillashaw embraces the snake thing so that’s not an insult. I’ve always been a fan and disliked necktats.

    depends on how obsessed you are with other men.

    also, team sports have the benefit of a set schedule and a clear path to championships.

    I always supported TJ.

    Cody is a good fighter but he's a douche.
