    Then has blood streaming into his left eye and starts getting hit by Garbrandt's right alot more.

    Something to consider if a rematch does occur.

    I think in a crazy turn of events Dillashaw will defeat Cody and then Cruz will beat TJ again in a razor thin decision...

    TJ will then commit suicide, Dom will retire, and we'll get Cody Vs Frankie or Caraway for the title

    It was a kick that cut him

    Cruz said so himself in the post fight presser

    Yeah, the high kick cut him. The headbutt didn't land where the cut was.

    The high kick cut him on the top of the head if i'm not mistaken. The eyebrow gash was most definitely a product of the headbutt

    Cody had Cruz' timing figured out from the jump. Go ahead and make excuses for him though.

    I'm glad somebody is finally saying it. That replay made it look like the headbutt hit Dom on top of his head where his hair is.

    That cut was really in a bad place, and it very well could have caused a lot of problems for Cruz in there. It really didn't look like it was from the head-butt though. We were all trying to get a look at the incident, and it looked like Cody's head hit the back of Cruz's head, not the front. It seemed like it was punch that opened him up, but we didn't get a great angle during the fight. Does anybody have a clear GIF of the actual incident where it is clear what happened?

    Absolutely proven later on that it was a punch, not a butt

    So in this thread I've been told it was a headbutt, punch and a kick already.

    You are mistaken. During the headbutt when they collided Cody's head impacted Cruz on the top of his head, wasn't anywhere near Cruz's eyebrow.

    Idk:



    Looks to me like that second right hook cut him open. Cruz's left eye didn't appear to hit Cody. The top of their heads collided. If anything, the headbutt looked like Cody got the worse end of it. Cruz's big head hit him right in the face.

    Have you tried you know watching the fight?

    Or do you always rely on other people to make your decisions for you?

    The way their heads collided- Cody would have been the one to have a cut on his brow- Dom would have had it on the top of his head. I cant believe Rogan kept that same opinion after he watched the slo-mo replay! Nasty cut though.
