For over eight years, no one touched Dominick Cruz in a fight. On Friday night at T-Mobile Arena, Cody Garbrandt figured out the seemingly unsolvable puzzle, winning a five-round unanimous decision over Cruz to win the UFC bantamweight title, capping off a heated build-up to the bout with a masterful performance that ended with Bruce Buffer saying, “And new…”

“I’ve been waiting to hear that and visualized that since I was 12 years old and first watched the UFC,” said Garbrandt, who promptly put his new championship belt around the waist of Maddux Maple, the young cancer survivor who has been an integral part of the new titleholder’s rise to prominence. “It’s been a great journey.”

After this victory, a new journey will be beginning for the 25-year-old, who had an answer for every question posed to him by the 31-year-old Cruz, who had won 13 straight leading into the UFC 207 co-main event.

“He’s one of the best in the world,” Garbrandt said of Cruz. “Now I’m the best in the world, so anyone can get it. (No. 1 contender and former teammate) TJ Dillashaw, come try me.”

Scores were 48-46 twice and 48-47 for Urichsville, Ohio’s Garbrandt, now 11-0; San Diego’s Cruz falls to 22-2.
