    Cruz is not dumb enough to sit in front of anyone to load up and try to throw sloppy bombs. However, Cody is fast enough to keep up with Cruz, yet at the same time, Cruz does not have the power to take advantage of Cody's weaker chin, its like a brutal cycle of these 3 guys thats probably going to continue for a while.

    yeah i mean, cruz is just as fast as TJ, and we know Cruz just fights much smarter, so in another rematch, i can see Cruz taking it again.

    Cruz is probably happy to fight TJ again instead of Cody.

    Cruz is the BW GOAT and beat TJ because he is more technical. But by the time Cruz fought Cody he had already blown both his knees out like 4 times each. Cruz is too old and war tourn. TJ is amazing in his own right and most likely holds the title for a long time.

    you're not wrong

    TJ has the power to put away Cody but its not enough to put away Cruz who has a granite chin
    Cody has the speed and output to beat Cruz meanwhile TJ does not but that could change if he tightens his cardio for 5 rds

    At this point, I think the only guy who can beat TJ is Cruz.

    TJ should have never lost his belt.

    Justice restored.

    I think Dillashaw is the best of the three. But it's great to see that cluster of greats in one division.

    Its crazy thinking about it lol, because right now Cruz is happy that TJ won, he knows he can outpoint TJ again, yet he knows that Cody is fast enough to keep up with his funky movement, but at the same time, Cody hopes that Cruz or cejudo beats TJ because Cody knows he could probably beat either, or Cruz again.

    I don't understand. Garbrandt has the most neck tattoos. Doesn't that mean he's the best.???

    I agree. The super light weight classes are for the young and healthy. Cruz is 33, been fighting since 2005 and with ACL injuries in both knees, just can't compete in this weight class any more. He was a great fighter, though, whether you like his style or not.

    TJ would easily take the rematch and arguably won the first match. He fought Cruz's fight, if he didn't chase him and forced him to fight in the center as Cody did to Cruz, Cruz would have NOTHING for TJ.

    Tj won that first fight, that fight was a robbery. At this point, tj would demolish cruz if they ever fought again
