    Was rooting for Cody, hard to see him lose.

    Faster than TJ and about the same strength, but his chin doesn't hold up in exchanges. No matter how far ahead he is in a fight, always 2 decent shots away from getting rocked...

    Walking into 3 right hooks in succession is a bigger issue.

    It's his composure. He started out good, had made the necessary adjustments with kicks but once he rocked TJ he forgot all about that.

    TJ and Cody are the best fighters in the division by faaar.

    The mickey mouse neck tats must've affected his ability to take a punch.

    Showboating + neck tats + gets rekt = Ultimate Humiliation

    I think that Dom is up there too but unfortunately giving his age and injuries he's on the downside of his career. Imo prime Dom can beat TJ again but its a weird triangle in a sense that Cody seems to be a horrible matchup for him whereas TJ has Codys number

    Yea, Prime Dom is up there for sure. I think they can beat each other on any given day, it's that close in skill. But Cody needs to work on his composure, imo that's what lost him both fights against TJ.
    He got away with all the shit against Dom but he can't afford to do that against TJ.


    He kinda reminds me of a young and wild Platinum Perry in that sense.

    Big swinging wide punches leaving your chin exposed to a guy with great stand up wont help either...
