6) Dominick Cruz vs. Cody Garbrandt
Reigning UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is one of the most intelligent personalities in the sport of MMA and since returning earlier this year after a long string of injuries, he’s also become one of the most entertaining trash talkers in the sport, although in his own unique way.
“The Dominator” is gearing up to defend his 135-pound title against Cody “No Love” Garbrandt at Dec. 30’s UFC 207 from Las Vegas, Nevada and it’s been made clear that they aren’t the biggest fans of each other.
Whether it be through the media or on Garbrandt’s girlfriend’s Instagram page, the trash talk between the two has been both intriguing and incessant. The two also engaged in a war of words on this weekend’s (Dec. 17, 2016) broadcast of UFC on FOX 22. In fact, FOX had to censor much of the exchange due to the heated profanity being shot around.
Cruz and Garbrandt have provided us with a quality trash talk battle thus far and the bout is still more than a week away.
