The war of words between UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and undefeated challenger Cody Garbrandt continued on Wednesday evening ahead of their co-main event scrap at UFC 207 on Friday night.
During their latest heated exchange, Cruz was mocking Garbrandt during a verbal assault that left the challenger flustered.
Garbrandt was unhappy with the turn of events during the interview and decided to storm off of the set. After leaving the set, Cruz continued to speak to the camera, going after Garbrandt for his lack of composure.
The 135-pound king also got in a few laughs when he claimed to hear Garbrandt throwing objects and shouting next door.
It seems like the champion is currently in the challenger’s head and it’s going to be interesting to see what happens when the two come face-to-face at tomorrow’s weigh-in ceremony.
UFC 207 takes place Friday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. In the main event, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defends her title against former title holder Ronda Rousey, who is making her highly-anticipated return after more than a year out of action.
