    I think Garbrandt is the most talented fighter of all time at 135. He is definitively faster than TJ with crazy fast hands, with cardio.
    With that said, beside some nice kicks, what adjustments has he made? He clearly has some bad habits and needs a place to tighten up his defense.
    Thoughts?

    He needs to train with Jason Parillo.

    yup

    tj is right on the money when he says that cody is fighting other peoples battles for them. their in codys ear telling him hes better then tj and hes gonna knock him out, first fight was a fluke etc. instead of working on other things to make cody a better fighter. thats a disservice to cody, he went from being on top of the world when he beat dom to having his career in shambles. should have never taken this rematch if the plan was just to do what you did before because the 1st time was a fluke. thats amateurish coaching

    needs to leave that camp and go evolve somewhere else, because hes devolving if thats even a thing, at TAM. hes been thrown to the wolves because urijah and whoever are little wussies and are jealous of TJ.

    He just needs to fight smarter. He fought a terrific fight (and won) against the most cerebral fighter in the division, Dominick Cruz, yet he lets his emotion get the better of him and starts swinging wildly in the pocket against a strong hitter like TJ. It's absurd.

    That is true, but when you have a family you have an obligation to do what is best for your career. With that said tam is like a bunch of crabs in a pot

    Cody lost the fight but that doesn't mean he will ditch his team like TJ did.

    Cody won the belt while staying loyal to his team.

    Meh, he just lost to the better fighter. Shouldn't have to switch teams every time a fighter meets his superior. The team could always try to bring in some fresh perspectives themselves by bringing in new people.

    fighting smarter is partially done with better coaching.

    When you are losing because of fundamentals you should be changing camps. Tam brings people in all the time but it hasn't worked.

    cody should just retire from MMA, he already has a bad chin and has been concussed before

    TJ just ended his career with a 21 punch combination, but that's what Coby gets for being a private jet plane manlet

    Tj was the first to ditch his team and turn his back on all the people who made him the fighter he is today. You never make rivals with your team like that. Won the fight but still a snake. Straight sellout.

    Garbrandt won the belt because his talent covered his deficiencies(fundamentals/defense/chin). TJ left camps because he wanted to get more nuanced training/s&c instead of being a guy in 30's trying to bro out with the boyzz
