    Love the guy. Love his bravado, his trash talk, his intelligence, his style, his footwork...Dom is one of my favorite fighters and has been since the wec, but I think he is due to lose. He took a lot of shots from TJ. Tj is very quick himself, but tj isnt a power guy. Cody reminds me of Jeremy stephens. They both have huge power for their weight class but arent as equiped to win fights unless they ko somebody. Guys like that have a chance on any given night just due to that. Dom uses feints but he gets clipped in those feints and more importantly he got clipped coming OUT of the feints with tj. I think this is where Cody can catch him. He is going to be swinging at air most of the fight but I can just see him catching a shot as dom weaves his head up from a feint and how many of those can any 135lb guy take? The fight is 100% doms to lose, cody isnt on his level no way not even close but he has that one thing that can beat a crafty guy and that is huge power.

    Cody will lose. He is to flat footed. He ko the last four guys who were mostly grapplers. Dom reach will be to much.

    Dom needs five rounds to beat Cody, meanwhile Cody has five rounds to land something big. Garbrandt by KO after Cruz zigs where he should have zagged.

    I wouldn't go that far. But I'd sure love to see him lose. I figure Cruz has about a 70% chance of winning.

    I'm sorry to hear about your Enter button.Seriously though,he arguably lost to TJ,and people always lose eventually,so it's kind of a moot point.Yes Jon Jones hasn't really lost,but had he if he was actually fighting these last few years?The way he looked,and knowing he was on peds,he'll probably lose in the next few years if he starts fighting consistently again.Kind of a silly thing to say tbh,a fighter will lose eventually,it's mma.

    I agree it could happen but unfortunately sherdog is full of a bunch of Cruz nuthuggers who will give you shit for this


    Edit... too late

    That's what they've been saying about Mayweather forever, all the way up to his $300million payday... "he's bound to get 'caught' eventually."

    Come on... Cruz was having trouble talking after that fight because his lips were so torn up.

    And TJ only landed three fewer strikes than Dom himself.

    I like both guys, but I think, as usual, Dom outpoints him, and with relative east.

    TJ was the toughest match up for him.

    Cody is too stationary.

    I even think Dom might TKO Cody.

    Anyone can get caught but if TJ didn't catch Dom with his great striking arsenal and footwork then it will be much harder for Cody who mostly boxes and his movement isn't nearly as good as TJ's.

    I'm pretty sure Dom will take him down at will, too.

    Cody have to give all his best shots in the first one.
    After that if Dom still standing he is fucked

    this is easymoney, its minus 200 but doubtful this inexperienced wackadoodle is winning this fight. Maybe in a few years, not ready. He is gonna get wrassled like a calf.

    You said "Dom Cruz is bound to lose here is why"
    and then you said "The fight is 100% doms to lose".

    So that was really just a click bait title.
