I thought Cody sounded ill-prepared mentally for this fight in his pre-fight interviews. Two things in particular: 1. He spoke about the first fight being a fluke and he was the better fighter. With this mind set, you do not think you have to make changes to win a re-match. 2. He talked a lot about his health and not taking damage so he could be around for his kid. Not the proper mindset going into the most brutal sport in the world. On the other hand, TJ was prepared mentally for a war. He studied Cody and had prepared counter strikes and footwork for Cody's style. Despite winning the first fight, he made adjustments in camp, and came in mentally prepared to destroy Cody - and he did. Like most athletes at the top levels, being mentally prepared is critical. If Cody was not prepared for this fight, I question whether he will ever be. Maybe a change in camps in in order.
