    Cody looks helpless outside the Cage.

    But he made Cruz looks helpless inside the cage.

    The way Cody was mocking Cruz was a thing of beauty. It wasn't Rashad-esqe . It was much more intentionally funny. Made Cruz look like an imbecile.

    After round 1 I was thinking this kid probably would have made a decent boxer. my friend kept on saying he'd gas. and I said "he's not using too much energy he is just winning exchanges" I'm not a huge ufc fane but this to me is a top 10 performance in a championship fight

    Tought that cocky prick a lesson. Dom was probably fuming when cogar was dodging his shots and making him miss lke dom thought he would be doing.

    Garbrandts "clowning" made me cringe a little bit, but I was heavily routing for Cruz so..

    Both dudes were pure class after all was said and done and it was a hell of a fight, I don't know what the mini fan war after is all about.

    I don't think Cruz was getting bullied so much as frustrated. I mean, if Cruz were getting bullied, he wouldn't have kept moving forward even after getting dropped 3 times in a row, still trying to exchange. Great performance by Cody, and after his post-fight interviews, he actually seems like a decent guy who's been through enough to be as appreciative as he is for all of the people in his life.

    This may be the first time TS was on to something here.
    Let this fight serve as a lesson that shit talk isn't actual fighting. Lots of people were talking about how badly Dom was owning Garbrandt... in a press conference.
    Apparently this Cory guy does his talking in the cage with his fists (and with his poplocking)

    Cody is the one who is mentally strong. He did not waste his energy on Cruz's BS before the fight and saved it from when it matters.

    Cruz is not nearly as intelligent as Conor. Conor attacks fighters on a professional level (not a real Brazilian champ, only beats fighters in a stuck in the mud division, low pay, etc) in a way that triggers them. Cruz talked about Cody's problems like an abusive father, and it most likely made him stronger by reminding Cody what he had to overcome.
