Cody Garbrandt vs. Dominick Cruz

It’s rare that a fighter’s girlfriend gets dragged into pre-fight trash talk. Dominick Cruz went there prior to his title fight with Cody Garbrandt. In all fairness, Garbrandt’s future wife, Danny Pimsanguan, had been the first to sling mud at Cruz. She did so after he taunted his rival by posting an amateur fight where ‘No Love’ had been knocked out on Instagram.

In retaliation, Pimsanguan posted a picture of Cruz being choked out by Urijah Faber, which garnered a quick response from the fighter.

“Don’t get involved in big boy stuff little girl – [you’re] just going to get yourself embarrassed,” Cruz replied in the comments. ” Just have the tissue ready for your boy toy when he loses, that’s your job :).” Needless to say, Garbrandt wasn’t too pleased with the way Cruz handled the situation:

“It’s crazy he blocks me from Instagram — he talks shit to me then blocks me, then talks shit to my girl then blocks my girl,” Garbrandt told MMAFighting.com. “…That’s bitch mode. I’m focused on just breaking one thing and that’s Dominick’s jaw.”

Garbrandt would go on to defeat Cruz to win the UFC bantamweight title and end his eight-year unbeaten run.
