Bottom Line

Two excellent bantamweights with their backs to the wall are going to throw down. Cody Garbrandt is in a tough spot, but there is still hope for the future. After all, No Love is still young, and his losses have only come to top-ranked opponents. If he can perform a bit smarter, skills and athleticism remain for major success. As mentioned, Garbrandts current plan is to move to Flyweight. Entering the new Division following victory is definitely preferable, as No Love would pretty instantly find himself in the title mix. Loss doesnt quite put him square one, but the road to the Flyweight title would be considerably longer. At 37 years of age, this may be Assuncaos last chance at a title run seeing as he recently lost to a pair of current top contenders. A win over Garbrandt is still significant, type of victory that can jump-start athletes ' momentum. If Assuncao can pull it off, hes at least back in the mix and likely to fight another top five fighter next. Remember that mmamania.
