    Seems to be what everyone thinks and/or wants to see happen.

    How do you think this fight goes?

    What are each fighters advantages?

    Who wins and how?

    I think it is similar to the Cruz fight, mayb with more on the ground.

    I think Cody has advantage in striking and TJ grappling

    I don't know who wins but if it's Cody it's by TKO and if it's TJ it's by decision

    TJ. He is the much better fighter, and a bad match up. He made it look easy against a top 5 dude. TJ striking will expose his striking defense, I think. Very good fight for him.

    I agree 100 percent. My money will be on TJ by decision.

    I'm not so close to sitch as to be able to answer TS's questions, but I'd love to see these two fight, and would expect TJ to be favored. (and win)

    I badly want to see it. It's a great match-up and we get to see who truly is better after the shit they've said about each other so far. The fact they were teammates and don't like each other anymore makes it a little more interesting IMO.

    Not sure who would win at this point because Cody is much better than I thought he was, but I'm obviously hoping TJ wins. I do believe TJ is the better fighter overall but we'll just have to wait and see.

    I wanted to see TJ beat Cruz for the belt for obvious reasons, but I also wanted to see him fight Cody in a 5 round fight so either way it's all good. If TJ wins, I'm confident that Cruz will be fighting him for the belt again in no time.

    Cody/TJ would be a damn good fight. There's no possible way it could be boring. Perfect match-up in terms of skills and a fight that can be built up very well too.

    Man what a fight this will be. Cody looked on a different level than Dom. I know I shouldn't use MMA math but TJ was pretty even with Dom in comparison. However TJ was crafty against Link and his striking and takedowns looked slicker than ever. I slightly favor TJ but I think this a coin flip fight honestly.

    A bad match up for Cody? Don't think so. Yesterday he looked impressive as fuck man. Cody's hand speed was on point. Much faster than Cruz

    This is absolutely a huge fight in the MMA community. Cody just showed that he is high level and even haters can't deny that Dillashaw is one of the best fighters in MMA

    If they play that whole former teammate angle and build it up right it could be a huge fight.
