    TJ's movement is definitely top p4p. I would actually really look forward to TJ vs MM.

    You know a guy has crazy movement when he can slip a punch an end up behind his opponent

    I really hope Cruz comes back 100% physically and progressed like how he should have if he had been fighting this entire time.

    Imagine watching Dillashaw vs Cruz... The angles, the footwork, the head movement, the speed. I have dreams about that fight.

    He was taking a lot of chances though and did get hit a bit but damn, that speed!

    Always was a big fan of Barao but man, Dillishaw was beatiful to watch in that fight. So relaxed and loose but super fast and accurate. Even looks like a better version of Melvin Guillard at times (when Melvin was at his best). It's awesome to see a young fighter fight in this way, he'll have a hell of a career if he continues with this style.

    I would like to see how a fight with him and mighty mouse would play out now.

    awesome gif. Still kind of shocked at how overwhelming TJ was with his striking over Barao.

    Either he had the luckiest night of his life or he is really destined for greater things, I'd love it to be the latter.

    A thing of beauty. The way TJ multiple times changed angle after attacking was just jizzworthy.

    Yep. Barao really sucks at punishing people who are moving in on him. If it had been Aldo TJ's ribs would be cracked from knees..

    Barao got a lot of holes in his striking
    He is really good but nowhere as good as the hype
    Nowhere near

    TJ won me over with his last fight. That shit was crazy, I wish I would've made a bet!

    Not sure if "sucks" is the right word, but I agree with the Aldo statement.

    He's fortunate he filled his opponent's head with cobwebs.
    Fresher guy might keep up
