Dominick Cruz vs Cody Garbrandt

Dominick Cruz vs Cody Garbrandt fight video

Cruz is the best bantamweight in the history of the sport, but like all the greats, he will likely end up losing at some point. If he keeps fighting all these young and upcoming fighters, one of them is bound to defeat the 31-year-old champion. Is that guy going to be Garbrandt? He not only has the power to end things early, he might arguably be the best boxer Cruz has faced in a very long time... maybe ever? That said, Garbrandt has not faced anyone remotely close to the level of Cruz either, whether it's skills, experience, or fight IQ. Apart from his unique style, Dominick's best asset is his ability to adjust mid-fight and frustrate fighters. If Cody manages to hit him but not finish, expect Cruz to adjust and take over from other facets of the game, whether it's wrestling, or even tweaking things from stand up. Garbrandt has a very real chance of scoring an upset, but at this point, there's not enough reasons to pick against a more well rounded, experienced, and smarter champion.
