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

Cody Garbrandt

Round 2. Dillashaw throws a head kick that grazes Garbrandt's hair, which Garbrandt then pantomimes. T.J. Dillashaw, the flow of the fight now on his side, went on the attack.

Round 1. Garbrandt starts with a body kick.

Prior to the result, a member of Dillashaw's corner was seen screaming at Cody Garbrandt, infuriating the now-former bantamweight champion. Dillashaw took over from there, however, and connected with a counter right hand that dropped Garbrandt a second time.

While the stoppage was certainly warranted - Cody was not intelligently defending himself - he was still moving and very much conscious in immediately going head-to-head with the victor. "He stood up and I was just excited". Misses with a follow-up leg kick and Garbrandt scores with a left hand. In an exchange, a thunderous right hook floored Garbrandt; Dillashaw jumped on the fallen champion and added blow after blow until Big Dan waved the fight off.

"The reason why I look so lean at 135 pounds is the way I work".

Following the knockout, Dillashaw had nothing but good things to say about his former teammate.

All of the women, former coworkers of Halperin at ABC News , said they did not report these incidents out of fear of retribution. The women who spoke to CNN said it was for this reason that they shared their accounts on the condition of anonymity.

The win saw him take back the belt he lost to Dominck Cruz in a split-decision defeat almost two years ago, a loss that clearly still wrankles.

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

You can't condition your chin.

The bantamweight champion admits that if he were to fight at flyweight, dropping the ten pounds would require a lifestyle change. The better shape you are, the better chin you have. "I should still be the champion and I am the champion".

The rivalry between the two fighters, who opposed each other early in 2017 as coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter", got juicy during fight week when Garbrandt released sparring footage of him dropping Dillashaw. This is my belt. "You dodged me and I'm coming for that belt".
