Dominick Cruz vs Cody Garbrandt, UFC 207, 30 Dec 2016
Fight of the Night
The great Urijah Faber will go down in MMA history as a legend of the sport. He paved the way for the great lighter weight fighters we know and love today. He made being 150 pounds and under cool when the fight industry was dominated by 200+ pound wrestlers. As legends are created, they also need to come to an end. Urijah Faber lost his WEC Featherweight belt and the belt changed hands multiple times before going to another great Featherweight fighter, Jose Aldo. Before he left the ring, Urijah Faber and his Team Alpha Male made one of the greatest rivalries in the sport against Dominick Cruz.
Time and time again, Team Alpha Male came up short against what seemed to be an allusive fighter with a unique style that couldn’t be deciphered. Urijah Faber, Joseph Benevidez, TJ Dillashaw. All the top guys from Team Alpha Male all came up short. Tonight, at UFC 207, we witness history in the making and perhaps one of the greatest moments in Team Alpha Male history if not MMA history. Cody Garbrant, a long time disciple of Urijah Faber, finds victory over Dominick cruz in one of the most incredible Bantamweight fights.

Both winning their belts and establishing their names in MMA with awkward strikes and unexpected angles. Dominick Cruz, the one that paved the way, versus TJ Dillashaw, the one that learned and improved on.
This is the kind of fight that didn’t just capture my attention, but captured my entire consciousness from beginning to end. I might have even forgot to breath as my brain melted into the screen – that’s how grossly engrossed I became.
