    I think Dillashaw wins via split decision by getting a few takedowns, which will make the difference. He will fight more intelligently than Cruz did. Cruz is at his best when his opponent is the aggressor as he is great at making them miss and countering, building up points in the process. It's pretty obvious the game plan for Cody was to not come forward and make Cruz be the aggressor. If Cruz didn't take on the roll of the aggressor the fight would have been boring, but it would have been in his best interest. Instead, he challenged himself and played the role as the aggressor, which was good for the fans, but not him. I think if Cody would have been the primary aggressor, Cruz would have won via decision. Making your opponent fight your fight was crucial and Cody did a great job in this respect.

    Dillashaw has a better offensive striking and takedown abilities than Cruz in my opinion. So if Cody fights the same way he won't fare as well. I think Dillashaw will get it done.

    Interesting fight.

    I will look at some stats before making a prediction, but my gut leans towards dilly via decision
    There can only be ONE!

    great job analyzing the cruz fight. i think dominick got too caught trying to make an exciting fight and totally played Cody's game while Cody sat back and reaped the benefits.

    i also think your prediction is fairly on point. TJ wont make the same mistake. only an idiot would. itll be interesting. they both def got some heavy hands for little twerps.

    im creepin wit my eye on the prize.

    recently ive experienced some of the best and worst moments of my life and it was all rather extreme. one thing i have learned is that balance always remains.

    be your own hero.

    UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt recently claimed there is footage of a gym knockout he scored over T.J. Dillashaw back when Garbrandt had just launched his MMA career and both men trained at Sacramento’s Team Alpha Male.

    To which the former champ basically responded: Put up or shut up.

    On a recent edition of The MMA Hour, Dillashaw — who left TAM for Colorado’s Elevation Fight Team in a highly visible split a couple years back — said that no such footage exists because it never happened.

    So Dillashaw called the new champ’s bluff and told him to release the footage if he has it.

    “He keeps talking, he has footage on it,” Dillashaw said. “I think that’s hilarious because he’s digging himself a hole. If you’ve got footage on it, put it out. It has not happened. If he does, put it out there, because it didn’t happen.”

    Dillashaw became TAM’s first UFC champion when he finished Renan Barao at UFC 173 to win the bantamweight title. He held it for a year-and-a-half before dropping the belt to Dominick Cruz last January in a razor-thin decision.

    Dillashaw doesn’t deny Garbrandt that hits hard, but says he’s never been knocked out cold, whether in the Octagon or in the gym.

    “We’ve definitely thrown down,” Dillashaw said. “Don’t get me wrong, Cody is a tough kid. It’s funny for him to talk about how he’s knocked me out before. The closest I’ve been to being knocked out is in the John Dodson fight when he clipped me.”

    With an impressive victory over John Lineker at UFC 207, Dillashaw secured his title shot against Garbrandt. The two former teammates are currently coaching on the 25th season of The Ultimate Fighter.

    In the meantime, Dillashaw maintains that if the rumored knockout footage exists, Garbrandt should release it to the public.

    “Put it out there,” Dillashaw said. “And if it did [happen], I must not remember it because I got knocked out. It didn’t happen.”
    TJ Dillyshaw is daring Cody Garbrandt to release the gym footage of Garbrandt knocking him out and claims the closest he has been knocked out was when John Dodson "clipped him". Didnt he get dropped and hammered by Dodson?
