    We know one of boxing dirty tricks is a sneaky headbutt.. Did that head but change the course of the fight? it seemed like Cruz was not the same after the headbutt.

    If some one can post a gig thanks

    No, eating Cody's fists is what changed the outcome of the fight.

    Cruzs style of running, break dancing and throwing looping shots works best on midgets with poor boxing fundamentals

    When you take a non midget who can actually strike, Doms ridiculous style isnt nearly as effective

    That is why he lost, he pitched his own made up style born of his own ego, against actual time tested proven fundamentals

    I don't think the head butt or the vagina that opened up really affected the fight that much honesty

    They both said it was from a kick Cruz leaned into postfight.

    It was the huge right hand that Cruz ate on the brow right before the clash of heads.

    ah, no shit? watching the fight back you can clearly see Cody land a huge right hand exactly where the cut is.

    The cut Cruz got was from a strike. The headbutt actually landing near Cody's eye from what I saw. Cody would've been the one hurt from the headbutt, that's when I started to see the redness around his face actually.

    Cody has awesome boxing with speed and power to go with it and was timing and countering Cruz perfectly so stop with the midget shit. If you know shit at all about fighting you know that had nothing to do with his success in this matchup.
    Cruz relies on angles not reach to land on you and always takes away his own reach advantage with his style

    Dom said his head was split by Cody's kick. Rogan said it was a headbutt. The headbutt was after the kick. IMO opinion, cruz's downfall was really expecting Cody to be one-dimensional.

    From what ive seen he runs and dances and makes you chase, then uses his superior size and reach to counter you

    i'm looking for a time-stamp for the punch. iirc even between rounds they show a replay of the punch to the brow while joe is talking about it being from the headbutt, the next replay is of the clash of heads and its nowhere near the cut.

    okay so there's the headkick to the right eyebrow (4:51, 3rd) just a second before the right hand. Kick or the big right hand.

    Not from the headbutt.

    Props to both fighter, btw Cruz could have easily claim he can't continue after headbutt and fight would end in NC.
