im a big fan of cruz and i was hoping a ko win over cody, but cody did a great job, he showed amazing movement and a good composure making cruz play his own game, cant wait for the rematch, im sure cruz will breakdown this fight and comeback stronger.
in the other side i dont see tj beating cody tjstyle is like a mimic of cruz but a little bit worse, with that presicion and power cody will finish tj in the 2nd.

Would love to see a rematch. I think a rematch could go completely different. I would expect Dominick to be a lot less emotional going into the fight, study the tape, and come back better. Would be fun to watch again. Dillashaw would be a great fight too. Don't know if TJ will get KO'd, he might actually do better than Dom or worse. You don't really know, because it's about how you respond to your opponent and Dom & TJ both react differently. Would love to see regardless.

I never liked Dominik Cruz as a champion.. just like Aldo, Franklin, Ronda, and many more, he was a hyped up champ in a weak division that was easily defeated by a real world class fighter.. not to say that Cody is *that* special..
BUT - props to him for never giving up and being dangerous to the very end.

Guys... I gotta point out a moment in this fight that is just absolutely legendary in my mind. I haven't seen anybody mention this yet.

Check out 21:38 in the video. 3:55 in the third round. Cody starts mocking Cuz after he opens up the gash on his eyebrow. Cruz wipes the blood on his hand and tries to slap Cody with it.

These dudes have to be two of the baddest mafuckers I've ever seen.

Some of the most classiest fighters too. You should check out the post-fight press conference. Very respectful to each other and humble even in defeat and victory, respectively.

As for the next fight I expect Cruz will get a rematch, but I think both Dillashaw and Linneker would be interesting contests for him .

The only rounds Cruz won were 2nd and 5th. he got dropped like 4 times in the 4th no way Cruz won that. I would go back and watch it again if I were you. Maybe with some glasses. Cruz even said he got worked in the post fight.

I disagree the 1st was close but Cruz did more, we agree on the 2nd, the third Cruz got cut from a clash of heads that was exacerbated by a kick/knee (Even Garbrandt wasn't sure as he said both, I think Cruz stated by a kick) but even with that Cruz was the more active fighter with Garbrandt sticking with his slip and look for opening strategy.  The 4th round Cruz was dropped cleanly twice, one time when Garbrandt stepped on his foot and hit him in the body, and the last time when Grabrandt hit him in the armpit when he was off balance.  We agree on the 5th.  So as stated even if you go with the 4th negating the first 3 rounds Cruz won the 5th which would be how he won the fight.   I just listened to Cruz on the post press he admitted to he was caught in the transitions but never felt he was out of the fight or as you put it "was worked"

Guys, I've got a theory - Cruz wasn't 100% that night, at times looking like your typical brawler, etc. He says he was at his best, not injured and such, BUT Cruz is also a master tactician and it may vary well be that he wants his competition to underestimate him and judge him based on this performance.

He did look like age was catching up to him in the pre-fight interviews, so not sure if it's him aging or as I suspect some undisclosed injury that made him slow down (I'd bet my money on plantar fasciitis). In any case, he lost fair and square, not really sure what's left for him to do - should've retired after beating TJ to keep his mystique as the most dominant & elusive fighter of his era.

I don't think its the end of the road for him at all. But he might not be a champ again. I'd be interested to see him at 145 he wouldn`t be undersized at feather weight and there are some interesting fights for him there. 
I'm not sold on your theory Den. He seemed fine and the fact that Cody didn`t chase him made it look as if Cruz was slower than usual. 
He`s never been lightning fast it`s more a case of he is already moving when his opponents come forward so he`s not just reacting, he`s already decided what direction he`s going to exit after his strikes.

It wasn`t a clash of heads that cut him. It was a head kick like 10 seconds into the third round. About 20.40 into the video. Dom even said this himself in the post fight presser. Garbrandt 1,3 and 4( 10-8 )
1 was only close in volume Garbrandt landed the heavier shots and by the new scoring criteria damage out weighs volume
