    Dominick was the UFC champion when Cody made his MMA debut, in December 2012.
    Cruz was 19-1 at the time and had already beat MM in his second UFC title defense.


    Garbrandt is fighting the guy who was and still is the UFC BW champion when he got into the sport. Has there ever been a case like this before?

    Garbrandt just mentioned this on the MMAhour:
    "I was thinking about Cruz before i even did MMA. When i just trained Boxing in 2007 and saw Urijah and Cruz fight for the WEC title, that's when i pictured myself fighting Dominick"

    who cares is the better question. But if you want me to humor you, Chris Weidman made his debut while Silva was still champ.

    Wasn't Ho-zay WEC champ when Conor got into the sport?

    Cruz could surprise everyone and wind up with a finish. Or Garbrandt could catch him.

    But yes I agree, 50-44 is my prediction.

    Sure I guess considering Cruz was stripped during his 5 year lay off

    Who cares? An interesting question is asked on here instead of a corny #bless thread or one claiming a fighter is overrated for once.
