Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt: UFC 227 Odds

At UFC 217 we saw these two battle it out where both landed night ending hooks, TJ "saved by the bell" and Cody Garbrandt was not as lucky.

The early preliminary fight between Perez and Torres was a highlight in the build-up to the main card fights between Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo, as well as T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Grabrandt. That was the final sequence of the TKO, but it was a pair of right hands that really put Garbrandt in trouble. He was caught by another harsh right from Dillashaw which gave obvious jelly legs to Garbrandt. "Cub Swanson is one of the best and this is the best win of my UFC career", said Moicano.

After earning a TKO win against him last November, Dillashaw was asked to step back into the Octagon to face Garbrandt a second time on Saturday night at UFC 227. As Dillashaw unloads on Garbrandt, referee Herb Dean allowed a lot of damage to continue, giving Cody every chance to regain composure but he was to far gone.

"I am the best bantamweight of all time".

T.J. won in the second round after a knockout. He now trains out of Los Angeles. Dillashaw took his back and rained down some ground-and-pound, but Garbrandt managed to get back up even though he was clearly on auto-pilot at that point. With Dillashaw winning back-to-back fights in spectacular fashion, Garbrandt has a lot of work to do if he wants to receive another title shot.

Instead, he took a final shot that the writers, stating that their interests did not line up with that of the Hall of Fame. The former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver boasts 14 seasons, six pro bowls, 15,292 receiving yards and 156 touchdowns.

The fight didn't start out in Cejudo's favor as he appeared to turn an ankle in the opening round and limped at times as Johnson continued to switch stances and score with strikes from the outside.

He said: "I am the best bantamweight of all time". Demetrious Johnson didn't go up (to bantamweight). Also, Dillashaw said he would welcome a challenge from Cejudo, so the superfight is a possibility as well.

After the very competitive and exciting fight, it was announced that Cejudo had ended Johnson's historic reign via split decision.

As much as the champion versus champion fight might interest Dillashaw, there are plenty of options available to him in the bantamweight division as well. I was born right here in Los Angeles, in a two bedroom apartment so, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to these fans in California for their support.

Cejudo won his first 10 pro fights to earn his first shot at Johnson, but Mighty Mouse stopped him with a flurry of punches in the first round of their first meeting 28 months ago.
