    Can’t take a punch and goes into hiding when he loses.

    Terrible comparison IMO.
    Cody didn't go into hiding. For christ's sake, he went to the post fight press conference after his first loss to TJ and took questions. That's the opposite of going into hiding.

    I could see Cody being mentally broken from losing twice, not to just anyone but a guy he hates.

    We'll have to see, maybe he can put it behind him and go on another run.

    As long as Cody is not going to hide his neck tattoos behind a purple pillow, he will be ok.

    When Cody was reflecting on his health and spending time with his family in the pre-fight interviews I thought he was in trouble and not mentally prepared for this fight. His chin is not good enough for his brawling style. He is very quick and can get usually get away with game plan. But, when you fight the top guys, especially the strikers, you are going to get hit. Cody cannot absorb the shots any longer. I feel is is done as top guy....the fight game is brutal.

    Not even close. Cody wasn't near the dominant fighter in their division as Rousey was, nor has he actually gone into hiding and completely giving up fighting after losing

    He lost the first fight, and thankfully decided not to completely shit talk leading up to the second one. He made a poor decision to brawl with TJ in this one. That's about it

    Hope he doesn't loose his confidence and can come back. Very fun style and fighter to watch in the cage. Lots of good matchups for him still

    Gotta give Cody credit for going over to congratulate TJ right after the loss. That had to be tough for him and was more class than RR showed.

    More like the BW Vitor. Amazing handspeed and power, but a frontrunner with regular brainfarts that doesnt like to be in a competitive fight.

    'can't take a punch', don't be stupid. he ate quite a few hard shots, and then a nasty knee right to the face and he was still standing at the end.

    The UFC adores him, so no way he has to fight such tough competition as TJ had to do to get another shot. So no Moraes, Assuncao or Lineker, but someone like Munhoz, Rivera or a money fight with Cruz instead.

    Just like how you create a troll thread and then disappear.
