    Especially after seeing that joke of a performance from Rousey, give it up to Dom for taking that much damage and hanging in there. Dude was dropped like 5 times, got his eye all busted up from maybe a head butt and never quit. Even won the 5th round. That is a true champion..

    agreed.

    at the end of the fight, i got a little sense that dom was relieved that he finally got beat -- he's finally a little too old to do this shit anymore. go be a bomb ass commenator, dom.

    You cant teach that. Cruz knew he was down and went for broke way more than he normally would. I think he would rather be KOed than lose a decision

    cody is a killer. good counters and movement.

    cruz always relied on being unorthodox.

    finally met his match.

    31 with multiple knee surgeries is more like 39. Ask Shogun.

    Cruz has said in an interview that he has been knocked out in training before. We only see .001% of what they actually do as fighters.

    Hasn't taken a lot of damage, but has had a ridiculous amount of knee surgeries.

    Cruz is a legend, he controlled the fight and landed more but he just got caught too many times. When you defend your title this will eventually happen, love the sportsmanship at the end when Cruz gave him that smirk.
