    After the rematch, how much of the results of these two fights do you feel was due to TJ simply having more skills, athleticism, power and capability, just being an inherently better fighter? And how much of it do you think was due to Ludwig simply outclassing the Alpha Males in terms of general coaching, striking training, mental preparation, cornering, developing fight IQ and other areas? Do you think both contributed equally or do you think one did more than the other, and if so, which?

    It is TJ's willingness to go out the way to learn new things, and meet some really great coaches and martial artists.

    That is what I was thinking. This seemed to show that Cody's win over Dominick was more due to the natural striking skills he did have and more of a blind squirrel finding a nut in terms of how he rose to the occasion. The ceiling of fighters' potential at TAM seems to just get smaller and smaller as MMA advances and they stay stuck in the bang it out bro mindset.

    Duane Ludwig definitely deserves credit.

    TJ is measured and precise whereas No Chin has a room temperature IQ, can't take a punch and allows his actions to be governed by his temper.

    Tjs more well rounded, obviously coached very well.

    Cody has glaring holes and team dildo exposed them.

    Team Alpha Male suck! Everyone should abandon that sinking ship.

    A little of both but Cody had no tools in there. TJ is just as good at kicking as he is at punching. I think the biggest thing is Cody's mild retardation and getting hit with three straight right hands.
