So did No Love actually break a new ceiling in terms of skill like Dillashaw and Werdum?

    I mean, he was always a tough, hard puncher, but clearly one dimensional. He goes up against Dom and all of a sudden a simple power puncher is moving like a mongoose, timing shots like Conor, reversing grapples and ground transitions like Fedor, what happened here? Did he get crazy good in a few short months? Was he always this elite and simply never had a chance to show it because his competition was mid-tier? Is this just an all stars alligned, once ever fight and he is not gonna look that good again? What do you all think?

    Cody is and has been the most technical boxer in the bantaweight division, calling him a tough hard puncher simply means you have no idea what you are watching

    Everyone else was low level, when you fight higher level guys...you're forced to perform at a higher level.

    Cody, Dillashaw, and Cruz are like characters in DBZ.

    They are pushing each other to their limits, and getting to new super saiyan levels everytime. It's fucking great.
