    Cruz clearly lost the first, but a second fight isn't out of the question, IMO. Cruz may have peaked, but it would be interesting to see how he makes adjustments.

    They only credited Garbrandt for 2 knockdowns?

    I thought the fight was more competive than the amateur hour commentating made it seem. Goldie and Rogan reacted to maybe 5% of Cruz's offense all night, while every time Cody even breathed on Dominick, Rogan would say "tagged him."

    dominic has (to me) the ugliest, most frustrating fighting style to watch of anyone i can think of. And that's
    1. why he wins
    2. somehow why he' still in my top 5 favorite fighters.

    Really cool video. I liked the part where he talked about Team Alpha Male taking 30 rounds to figure him out, but it seemed like he knew it was inevitable. I'd like to see him fight Garbrandt again to see what adjustments he'd make for the rematch.

    Cruz's style is so weird. He's always off balance, hands down, doesn't pull his hands back after a strike, frequently has both feel off the floor, etc. etc. And yet he was the best in the world that way. I love that about the world.
