As the video promos have no doubt made clear by now, UFC 207 features the long-awaited return of one Ronda Rousey. But the real fire may be coming in the night’s co-main event.

UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz (22-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) puts his title on the line against the hard-hitting Cody Garbrandt (10-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) at the Dec. 30 event, which takes place at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena and airs on pay-per-view. At this past weekend’s UFC on FOX 22 card, those two competitors were featured in a split-screen interview that MMAjunkie’s Ben Fowlkes provided a stern reminder of an important MMA lesson: Do not try to out-trashtalk Dominick Cruz, man.

Fowlkes takes a look at why that makes Cruz a special individual, and how other fighters should probably approach these types of situations moving forward.

In the Speed Bag, we look at how the judges got it so wrong they ended up being right.
