    Dillashaw over Barao the first time was probably the better performance; he got the finish, and he made Barao look clueless. In contrast, Garbrandt had to get to a decision, and he didn't look completely dominant, though he clearly had most of the answers.

    Nah, a lot of people gave Garbrandt a good shot at getting a KO blow. No one, including me thought TJ could go 3 minutes with Barao without getting ko'ed and having the dance of death over his body.

    TJ/Barao one was better because there wasn't a single close round.

    Dom won two rounds against Cody, and round one was close as well.

    The 2nd round of TJ/Barao was close actually, Henan arguably won it

    tj vs barao was better cause it was a lot more one-sided and there was a finish

    But, Cruz is a better name to have on the resume

    Still, Dom had a case for three rounds: 1,2, and 5

    Dom had more success than Barao.

    TJ by far. Tj finished Barao x2.

    Cruz was hurt but never out as Cody never went for the finish.

    Dom only has a case for 2 and 5. And Cody has a sturong case for a 10-8

    Very close, but TJ vs Barao

    Few people gave Cody a chance but we all knew he COULD land that one big shot, where as I don't think anyone gave TJ a chance at all

    Can't forget that TJ also finished Barao.

    Suprised how many people are saying TJ-Barao. I agree though. It seems many people have forgotten just what kind of reputation Barao had before that bout, and TJ just blew him out of the water.

    That's still twice as many rounds as Barao has a case for, plus Cruz wasn't finished. Are you just playing devils advocate, or do you believe Cody's performance was more impressive?

    Id go with TJ but youre making the Cody fight seem closer than it was

    also Cruz is a better fighter than Barao which is a factor

    This shouldn't be close.

    TJ would have won somewhere around 50-43
