    Turns out against equal sized opponents that bull shit dancing footwork and throwing sloppy wild arm punches doesn't work against actual fundamental boxing.

    told yall NOT to sleep on Cody. glad this charlatan got exposed. Cruz was not a fundamentally sound fighter, his movement only worked cause he TOWERED over the fighters he fought

    This is the only time in Dominick's UFC career he's faced someone taller than 5ft7. LET THAT SINK IN

    fundamental boxing/footwork > sloppy arm punching and wasteful movement

    he didn't get towered by Dominick, which is his ONLY advantage in his fights

    C'mon, TS...that stat MAY be true, but he gets beat once in about 10 years or something, and he's exposed?

    Cody had excellent movement and always looked comfortable and composed.

    Cruz did a fine job. He tagged Cody some bit and Joe just ignored them.

    He's got absolute freak athleticism.

    Look at the speed and timing when he would sprawl and his insane reversal. We don't get that many top level athletes in MMA, and I have no doubt Cody is one of them. He's special.

    Dom held on tough and made a fine accounting of himself, I don't think enough people are giving him credit for taking shots that would have put away a lesser man. He's tough and as game as they come.

    Cody has good fundamentals everywhere, power, and athleticism we rarely see in MMA.

    he also has good size for the division. Dom has never faced anyone with that combination

    bantaweight was a joke division till recently

    There is correlation and causation.

    Cody is undefeated and has a spectacular athleticism compared to his peers in the sport of MMA. You get a handful of guys across all divisions with that level of raw athletic ability. Dom had his wrestling completely negated - one of his biggest tools - because Cody was too fast and athletic for him. Height had zero impact there.

    There isn't any reason to cast aspersions on Dom, rather, Cody is undefeated because he's just that good.

    majority of the fight took place on the feet and height was a big factor in Dom never finding his range

    Because Dom was completely shut out of wrestling. He got stuffed repeatedly then eventually abandoned it after finally getting a take down and instantly getting reversed.

    The athleticism gap in that fight was obvious.

    Cody stood directly in front of him with his feet planted and dodged barrages of punches with head movement. That isn't about height or reach, we can both agree. It's about speed and raw athleticism.

    i truthfully always wondered how he would do vs someone his size

    he gets away with a lot of shit because guys dont have the reach to touch him.

    The only thing that is exposed is your low iq
