    They both weighed in at 142 lbs on fight day.

    I find this interesting because DJ fans claim that he's not only too small for Bantamweight (which admittedly he is), but he is too small for Flyweight too (which is ridiculous because he wouldn't be able to make 115). He cuts way more than he lets on.

    Also, Garbrandt should definitely have a crack at Flyweight now that he's lost to TJ twice.

    He's smaller than most guys he fights at FLW. 142 is actually a little heavy for him. He openly cuts from 138ish without dieting down lower. He cuts 13 lbs if that and rehydrates. He could cut way less if he dieted but he hates limiting what he eats.

    Yes, he looked bigger than normal. Cody also looked lighter than normal.

    I saw that too, fans of dj ducking tactics always saying how much bigger tj would be then him on fight night 7.5lbs is the difference and TJ only cut to 135 that night he'd probably weigh almost the same if he'd cut to 125 lbs. Really makes this laughable they think he should been protected by guys who are similar in size to him this why he was never a real goat.

    Was shocked how small Cody looked. I knew he didn't cut much but I expected him to be about 5 lbs heavier. Crazy.

    Exposed?
    -weighs the exact weight as he has always said he weighs
    -close SD which he arguably won

    I don't think you know what that word means

    He looked too big the first time. He probably thought he needed to reduce and did too much to be honest. Especially when he's just going to wing it at TJ anyways.

    Henry also said that he was bigger than DJ.

    DJ cuts from 138 typically. Says so in several interviews

    Cody should go down a class so this doesn’t happen:
