    I predicted in Sept that Cruz would begin the downward slope of his career and begin to slow as a fighter. Not one person agreed with me and yet here we are with some neck tatted douche as the champ. Was there anyone else out there who thought cruz was done?

    I was certain after seeing Faber handle him for Rd1 up and then change his style after being rocked in Rd2, I heard he had a bad weight cut and that probably made it much more difficult for him to recover. This is what my predication was based on and turns out I was right! Cruz looked slow and his muscle tissue was beginning to look deflated.

    Glad Team Alpha Male got a win over Cruz though, even if Cody is a douche it''s nice to see Cruz Humbled.

    Necktat. Might be an unfair stereotype, but it's generally accurate.

    Cody is the man.

    Bully Dom deserved to lose.

    Cruz's striking has always looked bad too me, but somehow it's worked. It's not even that he's real slow, his jab is alright. but that looping swing from behind his hip was always baffling to me since so many other fighters manage to get hit from it.

    You called it. I certainly thought Cruz was going to win. If someone told me beforehand that this fight went the distance I would have guaranteed a Cruz victory. Cody looks like the next big star.

    Psssh Dom is an oversold lie that this forum ate up. I said it when he beat TJ that he didn't win that fight.

    I'd rather have Cody as champ...not a lot of dancing going on...bring on Dillasnake....I got Cody by KO.

    He fought a really good fight and surprised most people. Dropped Cruz a few times and clearly deserved the title. I don't like or dislike Garbrandt, but his fights are entertaining and I see no reason to hate on him tonight, neck tattoo or no.

    Cruz just ran into a guy with a striking background who happened to be fast as fuck.

    I refuse to partake in the Sherdog hate. You called your shot and were 100% correct.
