Cody Garbrandt Knew He’d Control Cruz

Following his dominating win over Dominick Cruz, new UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt believes “The Dominator” deserves a rematch.

Garbrandt talked about his win over Cruz and his future during the post-fight show.

Garbrandt on fighting Cruz: “He stayed in there tough. He’s a champion. I knew I had to stick to my game plan. I had to figure him out and test my heart and will. He made me a warrior tonight.”

Garbrandt on if he’ll fight Dillashaw next for the title: “I’m going to give Dominick a rematch. He was the champion and deserves it. TJ can wait on the side and beat other people up. Or whatever the UFC wants. I’m going to beat them all up.”
