    So TJ just destroyed Cody for the second time, both of them being brutal finishes.

    Where does Cody go from here? Will he ever be the same again?
    He just got violently finished twice in a row by the champ! These finishes, in addition to the fact that it was a grudge match take a toll on you

    So unless there's some kind of controversy there should never be an instant rematch

    I would be more pissed bout Cujedo wanting to hold up two divisions after winning tonight, this is a trend that needs to end, like disco, hair bands, and grunge.

    He keeps fighting until someone else beats TJ, then he might get another shot.

    Yup.

    Cody lost by KO in his first title defence. There's no way he should've got an immediate rematch. But it's what the UFC wanted and I can't say I blame Cody for taking it.

    The UFC (and it's fans) need to get used the idea of fighters taking easier fights to rebuild themselves after losses. Ultimately it's all a risk, as anything can happen in MMA, but if you do the immediate rematch and lose, you find yourself in Rich Franklin/Joe Benavidez territory and a title shot becomes essentially impossible.

    Cody didn't give himself enough time to actual improve or change his game, so it was basically just the same fight again.

    He's young and can still bounce back, but his best bet is for TJ to lose... Which may not happen for a long time.

    Yeah that shouldn't have happened really.

    It was a really risky roll of the dice, Conor's career might have ended if Nate beat him badly again.

    Cody now has had two savage KO loses to his most hated enemy. Better off to smash some cans and recover some confidence first.
