TJ Dillashaw on Cody Garbrandt: 'He Doesn't Deserve a Rematch'

TJ Dillashaw reclaims UFC bantamweight championship with KO of Ohio's Cody Garbrandt

It all stemmed from Dillashaw leaving Urijah Faber's Team Alpha Male to continue working with Duane Ludwig, back when Dillashaw still held the belt. They coached opposite of each other on The Ultimate Fighter 25 earlier this year and their dislike for one another played out on television. The pair were originally scheduled to battle it out over the Summer, but an injury pushed the fight back.

Speaking at the post-fight press conference for UFC 217, UFC President Dana White discussed a potential title fight happening between new bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw and reigning flyweight champion Demetrious johnson. You know I'm down for it, because I wanted to do it before.

TJ Dillashaw got his strap back, y'all.

Relentless ground and pound robbed Garbrandt of his senses and the referee had no choice but to step in and confirm Dillashaw's second spell as 135lbs king.

Do you want to see Dillashaw take on "Mighty Mouse"? The champ seemed to find his range while the round wore on, and possessed the more powerful strikes, while Dillashaw had the edge in speed and footwork. I'm going to see him again.

After being saved by the bell to end the first round, T.J. Dillashaw needed to regroup and get back to his game plan in the second.

Round 2. Dillashaw throws a head kick that grazes Garbrandt's hair, which Garbrandt then pantomimes.

Nadal seals fourth year-end No.1 ranking
As stated in the Twitter account of the Masters 1000 of Paris, it is the fourth time that the Spanish achieves such a performance. In the race to join Nadal and Zverev at the ATP Finals in London, there were valuable victories for Lucas Pouille and John Isner.

The past became reality when Garbrandt did the same in Round 1.

Another quick punch from Garbrandt.

That may have been the beginning of the end, however.

"He's a hell of a fighter", Dillashaw said.

"(Johnson is) talking about how he wants those seven-figure fights - well, this is it", Dillashaw added. This makes him a two-time bantamweight champion under the UFC banner.

However, Dillashaw now has his eye on fighting pound-for-pound No.1 and long-time flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, which is also an exceptional match-up.
