    Now can we get some better perspective on this subject please?

    Cody is 5'8" and some number lbs under 160.

    Could you imagine what Aldo, McGregor, Holloway, Edgar, shit, maybe even Swanson would do to Cruz?

    <{cruzshake}> Cruz is still a beast. I would still want to see him fight agains the fighters you listed, and pretty sur he would beat most of them.

    He lost because he was getting timed

    Aldo may be able to time him,but he is also wild as fuck at times,conor sure he is way bigger and has great timing,holloway i could see it,frankie?nah would be a boring fight and cub isnt top shelf

    Cruz did OK against midgets but not so good against someone his own size.
    Moving up would not be a wise idea.

    Have to agree with you. Cruz lost one fight and he's being written off. Let's see how he picks himself back up before we say anymore.

    Not just lost one fight.

    He lost to a guy the same height and far inferior in reach to many Featherweights.

    And likely equal or less powerful than them.

    And with a more narrow set of skills.

    He defeats midgets thanks to his reach and speed. If he gains weight and goes up he will get blasted by a lot of guys.
    Conor will literally kill him.

    Aldo's timing and defense is superb. Plus he has better reach, power, and speech than Garbrandt. Plus a wider array of weapons.

    McGregor's timing and boxing ability is second-to-none.

    Holloway, sure, great kicks, height, and power.

    I don't know why you say Frankie would be boring. Cruz would be one of the smallest opponents he's ever faced. Also boring =/= unable to win.

    Cub isn't top tier however he could use wrestling or land a huge shot.
