UFC 217 Results: TJ Dillashaw Knocks Out Cody Garbrandt

07 November 2017, 12:15 | Susie Olson



The feud with Garbrandt, caused by Dillashaw's acrimonious departure from Team Alpha Male, also motivated him to remain a bantamweight but he still had some kind words for his 26-year-old rival after his first ever professional MMA defeat. But it didn't take long for fireworks to break out. Dillashaw showcased his patented feints and movement in the early exchanges while Garbrandt found home with his counter-punching.

The challenger swarmed on Garbrandt, compelling referee Dan Miragliotta to step in at around the midway point of the second round.

Dillashaw misses with a hard leg kick and Garbrandt is already showboating.

The champion reached his feet quickly as they began to trade punches at close ranger.

"No Love" had Dillashaw in severe trouble at the end of round one, before taking a head kick and eventually a right hook not dissimilar to the one he landed on TJ in the infamous training video in the second. T.J. Dillashaw, the flow of the fight now on his side, went on the attack.

"I was just yelling, I was just yelling", Dillashaw said.

Shortly after, the two fighters hugged it out and shared pleasantries. Congratulations [to Garbrandt], man. "He's young, he's going to be back and I'm going to see him again". You know I'm down for it, because I wanted to do it before.

The past became reality when Garbrandt did the same in Round 1. Dillashaw whiffs on a kick and Garbrandt showboats afterwards.

He added, admitting he had been hurt by the knockdown: "The kid is fast. The better shape you are, the better your chin is".

After reclaiming the title he lost to Dominick Cruz, Dillashaw announced his intention to drop down for a superfight with the flyweight and P4P king. But almost two years later, he earned revenge and now has his sights on a super fight with P4P kind and flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

"That belt has been around my waist the whole time in my mind".

"I was fighting No 1 contenders and I should still be the champion". This is my belt. Listen, you can't be in a position where you're like "I want $2 million, f*ck you, I don't care what you make. You dodged me and I'm coming for that belt".
