    And if they fought 10 times TJ will beat him 9/10 and so will Cruz (Cody fought a worned out cruz who was fighting for the 3rd time that year in a championship fight) Cody before the rematch was saying that the first fight was a fluke but the only fluke that happened in that fight was the knockdown he landed . I dont really like Cody or TJ but we all should agree that tj is a much better fighter than cody .

    TJ is one thing but Cruz??? Garbrandt beat him with absolute ease and made him look foolish. So no. Cruz wouldn't beat Cody 9/10 times. If anything he would lose 9/10 times.

    No.

    Any of those three could be champion on any given night right now.

    Why this need to be calling all kinds of shit "fluke"? No, it wasn't a fluke. Garbrandt is a great puncher, and fighter. Him knocking TJ down isn't a fluke. Doesn't mean TJ isn't the better fighter overall.

    LOL cody already got knocked out twice from him and he is still the better fighter ? Assuncao Lineker all will beat cody if he has the balls to fight them

    Cody has lots of work to do, but his potential is questionable.

    I wouldn't say he's better, but he's definitely good enough to hurt him if he stays disciplined. But he doesn't, so...

    I don't think the knock down was a fluke I just think TJ got a bit careless in the pocket and got caught. Cody and Cruz is a hard one. Cody is a difficult stylistic match up for Cruz but I feel Cruz' fight I.Q is so high he could make the necessary adjustments to beat him in a rematch. Cody had no respect for Dom's power and Dom wasn't really putting much behind his punches but that won't work with Cody because he's so fast and good at countering. If Cruz was to beat Cody it would be in a similar fashion to how TJ did it.

    No. TJ has been dropped in at least three fights and Cody has stupid power for bantamweight. The only fluke was the way Cody went down and had his arm trapped awkwardly. It doesn't mean he wasn't getting finished, but it was a weird situation. They were fairly even in the first fight and TJ beat that ass in the second fight. Don't make it out to be anything it wasn't.

    I use to think Garbrandt was gonna be the next big thing when he outclassed Cruz, but now I'm starting to think Cruz is a easy matchup for him, he can barely generate power and somehow decided to try to trade with Garbrandt. Could honestly see guys like Lineker, Rivera and Moraes knock Garbrandt out as well.
