As some of you are already aware of, I'm a huge Dominick Cruz fan and, as the fight was coming up, I've supported the former champion and picked him to be the winner of this fight. I've always admired Dominick's capacity of implementing strategies inside the octagon, his fantastic speed, movement and footwork, and more importantly, his discipline and love for competition. Cody Garbrandt, on the other hand... I must say I used to dislike him. I always saw him as an unitelligent short-fused individual, a little temper temper with some neck tatttoos, who probably had nothing but a punch for Dominick in the fight. But that fact is, Cody absolutely won me over last night. First off, he seems like a pretty good person, and his story with that kid Maddux is incredible. Garbrandt has stated that the kid has helped him to redirect his life, which was supposedly going the wrong way, by showing him the most important values in life. While we have some guys like Johny Hendricks (and I mean no disrespect to him, don't get me wrong), who don't let other people even touch the belt (he didn't let a journalist wrap it on her shoulder for a picture), the first thing Cody did with his belt was putting it around Maddux's waist. Second, what a fucking masterpiece by Cody last night's fight was. That display of boxing was second to none, Jesus. So, as a huge Dominick Cruz fan, I feel like I have to say Cody Garbrandt definitely got some new fans last night too. Well, I do know I can speak at least for myself, and as I've said, he absolutely won me over last night. War Cruz. But also WAR CODY GARBRANDT! tl;dr: Cody Garbrandt is a pretty good fighter, a very nice person, and we're all a bunch of pussies if we're so easily triggered with tattoos.
