UFC 227: Dillashaw vs

  • UFC 227: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt 2 Post-Fight Press Conference

This time around it took Dillashaw less than one round to dispatch Garbrandt as the reigning bantamweight champion earned a vicious first round TKO to cement his spot as the best 135-pound fighter in the world.

Cejudo earned a rematch thanks to two straight rebound victories and the utter lack of more compelling contenders for Johnson, who had been content to stay at flyweight instead of chasing bigger-money bouts at bantamweight, where he fought earlier in his career. Another Dillashaw right - it landed more like a clothesline than a punch - had "No Love" teetering on the brink. The 27-year-old had reached the top of the bantamweight division with a unanimous decision win over Cruz as a +185 underdog at UFC 207, and returns to the octagon for a second tilt with Dillashaw as a narrow -105 underdog.

With a decisive first-round knockout in the main event of UFC 227, TJ Dillashaw may have put his rivalry with Cody Garbrandt to rest, as he successfully defended his UFC bantamweight title for the first time with a second finish of his former training partner at Los Angeles' STAPLES Center.

But Cejudo stood up to the test and when the time came to read out the judges' scorecards, the heavy underdog was given the split decision nod, becoming only the second flyweight champion in UFC history. I want to fight the victor at 135 pounds and I deserve it. Demetrious Johnson didn't go up and they don't have to come down.

"I think he has some technical problems that he needs to fix", Dillashaw said at UFC 227's post-fight press conference (transcript courtesy of MMAFighting). "I felt very disrespected all week, with all of the talk of a super fight so I am standing here now to say that I want the victor of the main event", said Cejudo.




The rematch was another high-contact affair, but Dillashaw's chin was just a little better and his punching accuracy that much sharper and it was all that was necessary.

T.J. Dillashaw simply repeated himself, only quicker. There is a very big card coming up in NY with numerous top guys from my division on it and I would like to join them.

"I want the belt". I had the composure to win this fight. Garbrandt then took the belt from Cruz in December 2016, less than two years after he entered the UFC.

"He's a big dude and I would feel each time we would clash and he would get big shots off".

"It wasn't anything in sparring", Dillashaw said. Moraes is a well-rounded fighter and a former World Series of Fighting champion - I wouldn't be surprised to see him pull out a victory over Dillashaw.
