Cody Garbrandt Respects TJ Dillashaw As A Fighter

Cody Garbrandt And TJ Dillashaw To Finally Collide At UFC 217

Former bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw will try to recapture what was once his when he faces champion Cody Garbrandt in the UFC 217 co-main event on Saturday. Dillashaw then drops Garbrandt with a head kick. The end came at the 2:41 mark of the second round - and came after Dillashaw was saved by the bell in the first round when Garbrandt almost had him finished.

The action picked up right where it left off in the second round as Dillashaw had an immaculate recovery from being rocked. In the next exchange, Dillashaw landed a right hand that sent Garbrandt down for the second time. "But I say I'm the better fighter in there, and I'll show that in the rematch". 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.

That comes soon after I write that as Dillashaw goes for a kick and then Garbrandt comes charging forward with quick hands and puts DIllashaw in reverse gear.

Dillashaw emerged with the bantamweight belt and became a two-time UFC champion, but he had to overcome being dropped in the first round.

Another quick punch from Garbrandt. Dillashaw would utilize a number of leg kicks, while Garbrandt would answer back with his hands. If I have to wipe out the whole f*cking division - I will.

"I was fighting No 1 contenders and I should still be the champion".

TJ Dillashaw wasn't even supposed to be here. I should still be the champion.

Cody Garbrandt got a pair of championship pep talks in the week leading up to the biggest fight of his career: Kobe Bryant and Mike Tyson each stopped by for a motivational pick-me-up and to rub elbows with perhaps UFC's next big thing.

"Demetrious Johnson - I'm coming for you", Dillashaw added.

Dillashaw lost the bantamweight title to Dominick Cruz in January 2016 by split decision. "You got that record and it's fake".

"Training with TJ I've always known that he's a competitor", Garbrandt said.
