  1. On Dec. 30th Cody will look every bit the brawler….and none of the finesse, Thats what Dominick Cruz is going to bring to the fight. Cody dies by a 1000 sharp jabs and 1000 haymaker lefts and rights and finaly tko'd by Dom in the 5th. Oh he'll catch Dom with rights in the fight but he's not the guy to finish Dominick Cruz….Cruz has 2-3 years of undefeated fights to go yet.

  3. Now it is Cruz's turn to be hated for no reason. First it was Ronda, then Conor…. some dickheads just hate greatness. Dom will embarrass this kid and show why he shouldn't have even gotten a shot yet. The UFC has a trend of not building fighters the right way. They throw them to the wolves way too early.

  5. Team Alpha Male is not creating hybrid fighters. Ludwig alone was responsible for honing in on the talents of the only bantamweight to ever give Cruz a run for his money. He left, leaving behind him the next best thing – Garbrandt, who may have the fastest hands in the division, but lacks the footwork to position himself the way he needs to get the knockout against Dominick Cruz, who's rate of received strikes is around 20% and falling. I know all you No Love fans want a new champion, but face it, the odds are against your wishes becoming a reality. MMA history proves this. Most dominant champions who lose the belt, are matched by a formidable opponent who has striven to outclass them at their game, or create a new game that is the answer to defeating the champion's. This solution may come, but it not here yet. I've been wrong before, however.

  6. Why do people hate on him so much cause he's young and got an amazing opportunity in front of him. Should he not have taken it is it his fault he got it over tj. Hes the one people want to c he's been knocking dudes dead. And people saying he's cocky and has a big ego why because he stands up for him self in interviews guess he should just be saying I don't deserve this dom is going to kill me. Listen to the interviews he's actually giving reasons why he's going to win not just Doms usual comment of o u got a concussion. Be happy for the kid stop the hate and enjoy the fight it's gonna be great. Doms the original hybrid and Cody is the new have fun stop hating on someone younger doin something for themselves.

  8. we all got the not chasing pussy comment, it didnt go over doms head. He didnt respond because he was shocked you just said you dont chase pussy on TV. What kind of immature douche says theyve never had to chase pussy…….on National Television

  10. 19:31 WOW! Garbrandt was offered to fight Dillashaw in 200 on short notice, because Assuncao was injured? I did not know that. Maybe that's why Dillashaw never got the shot, because UFC thought Dillashaw should've finished Assuncao, and when he couldn't they waited for someone else, and they knew that there is a lot of exciting contenders in the division.

  12. Garbrandts reason's for why he can beat Cruz…. "He's getting older" "He had 2 blown out knees" "He's had busted up hands" "He is getting ready for the next part of his life and isn't focused" ….SOoooo Basically Garbrandt 100% admits he would get whooped by Prime Cruz and hopes he'll get lucky and win this because Cruz has had bad injuries. Damn, you'd think with his trash talking he would actually just say he's better than Dominick at something….like anything.

    • So… Cody himself is saying the only way he can beat Cruz is if Cruz is injured or because arthritis or some other weak reasoning. Terrible thought process, just hoping the other guy is slipping up… Sounds like he bought a ticket to the Lotto and he's SURE he'll win…. not a a good strategy!

    • +Murdered Yakuza Most of my friends studied psychology before they did their main field. When we debate on something we all know if emotions are involved or not. Your comment seems out of pure jealousy and depression because you literally judged him before you got to know him. Anyone can look like a cunt in a interview Conor is the top example of that. But saying he is a loser and a bum common man. Like every other mma fighter Cody will also be working hard. My parents sent me for the first time in my life to mma training when i was 11 it's and i am 22 now and i studied for a career instead because there is no retirement payments or medical care after you retire from mma. There are to many competitors these days for anyone to even notice you. There are literally millions training in every country to become a fighter. Blatant hate on them suggests jealousy and depression. Most people don't get it but when they rage on youtube they're actually showing their true colors. I am a huge fan of both Dominick and Urijah both of them earned my respect in the WEC days. But the shit talking Cody and his girlfriend recently said towards Dom was out of pure hate. I cannot wait for Dominick to make him miss and pay all night for 5 rounds. If Urijah did not judge Cody at first glance why should we? It's to easy to hate these days.

    • +Murdered Yakuza Cody knows he will not get a knockout over Dominick so he try insults and "Mental warfare" but Dominick has seen and heard it all. Trust me when i say those insults mean nothing when it comes to fight night. Dominick does not get angry at all in his fights he is always calm and collected. he will pick Cody apart and embarrass him like Dom did to TJ.

    • +Viewing​​​​​ You know less about me than you and I know about Garbrandt, with all the footage we have on him.
      You jumping to conclusions on my choice of words and judging me and sakurai btw as well by typing that he can't pull a sentence together is just as much if not closer to hate spewing as that minor thing I wrote. Perhaps you are grasping at straws, you ever thought of that? For all you know I called not his person a loser, but him being one in my opinion after his fight with Cruz on fight night. And I believe you too thunk he is going to lose. But you made the mistake many green people in the field (if you call having debates between you and your young college friends having experience in psychology) make; overanalyzing. You are too judgemental, and a hypocrite above all. I think Garbrandt's successful, and I wish him nothing but the best with that. You pulled my words out of context. Being overanalytical. Judgemental. You think you're smart by trying to find hidding meaning behind words, but all you did was, again, being judgemental, and even worse, stereotyping people based on a sentence written on, out of all things, youtube, with your 'living in basement'.
      Keep having more of those rookie debates with your friends, although I'd advise you to stop. They don't seem to be adding to your charater. Perhaps in a few years you'll outgrow these pubescent mistakes. I hope for you that they are age-related, many people I knew were like you when I was at university. Only truly intelligent people outgrow negative traits like you are showing.

  14. Cody's a typical young douche that has a big ego as if he's doing something that many men haven't already done. He's like a guy who just found out what pussy feels like and thinks he's cool because he finally got some. Ignoring the fact that he caught up to everyone else.

    Dom crucified him in the trash talk. Him claiming that joke when over his head as to imply that he's not smart enough to get it is hilariously desperate. Everyone knows that Cruz is way smarter than Cody's dumbass. When Cruz talked about how he bought a house with his whole team alone and then Cody said you're dreaming after he claimed he'd win because of his faith and Cruz pointing that out was more than Cody could handle. Which is why he started talking over Dom and cursing on live TV because he couldn't handle Cruz joke for joke. He's not fooling anyone.

    • +Nigalas Cage Logic and facts wins all arguments. Emotional name calling and making up stuff never does. That's why he crawled away with his tail between his legs. I can't wait to see his next reply talking real tough acting like he'd say shit to anyone's face but then pretending he's not the keyboard warrior. Pussy was even afraid to tag me because he knew he'd get beat.

    • +Trevor Harris Still nothing you chicken shit? I'm amazing that you go around starting online fights only to get your ass handed to you because you went into them petrified of tagging the person. My life could never be as sad, empty or pathetically weak as your bitch ass life is. If I broke you this easily online, imagine what I could do in real life. Not too pathetic is it? Fact! Your mom just beat you in Bingo as well since that's how you spend your Saturday nights, loser.

    • +op wfree It's YouTube you idiot! Everyone has fake pictures unless they're using there Google accounts. What world you living in? You also have a fake pic you hypocritical dumbass. I'm not a hater, I telling the truth. Show me where I lied.

      You sound like a moron who can't handle hearing the truth which is why you have to pretend people use real pics of themselves on YouTube when you don't even do that. reply back countering what I said, dork. Otherwise, you'll lose this worse than Cody lost the trash talk to Cruz. Don't be a delusional idiot who thinks you're going to rebound with something more clever than what I can counter you with. Address where I sounded like a hater and not a realist? Go!

    • +Mike D Hates You Probably! It will be funny to you and everyone who sees it since he can't handle words like he claims he can. Kinda like this "op wfree" moron I just buried who has to make up things to hang in an argument. Watch him fold in his next reply by needing to make up more lies.

    • L G

      Trixon dixon being disliked is just as important as being liked for a fighter. Being polarizing is what you want to be. Look at Conor, everyone watches. A lot want to see him lose a lot to see him win, but everyone buys that ppv

    • It's because he's a pure brawler relying on athleticism alone to win fights by rushing his opponent, he has poor technique and his footwork is sub-par. A Fighter that can angle off for counters and has proper footwork will eat him alive. His smack talk sounds like a Junior High School Bully and when he talks on live TV half of what he says gets Bleeped out because he has ZERO control over himself. ZERO control outside the cage when you get antagonized means ZERO control inside the cage. BTW, if you're studying technique, NO, Cody is not worth watching
