UFC 227: Dillashaw retains Bantamweight belt; Cejudo earns revenge vs. Johnson

05 August 2018

Meanwhile, in the main event, former training partners turned bitter rivals TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt tangled for a second occasion and much like their first meeting in NY last November, it was Dillashaw who would emerge from the fight with bragging rights. Dillashaw finished it by stunning Garbrandt with a series of blows, dropping the challenger and then battering him against the cage until referee Herb Dean stopped it with 50 seconds left in the round.

But perhaps more disconcerting to Johnson were the injuries that he believes he suffered during the fight.

"We were planning on him throwing a right hand", Dillashaw said.

The early preliminary fight between Perez and Torres was a highlight in the build-up to the main card fights between Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo, as well as T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Grabrandt.

A brilliant night of fights went down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Saturday Night (August 4th, 2018). From Olympic gold medalist to UFC champion.

"I am the best bantamweight of all time", Dillashaw said in the Octagon. It was only obviously that he would have a likely foot injury with all of the kicks he landed on Cejudo's legs, but the former champ revealed a knee injury at the UFC 227 post-fight press conference that could be much more serious.

Dillashaw knocked Garbrandt out in the second round in November at Madison Square Garden, but Garbrandt insisted an injured back before the fight did not allow him to properly train.

The event included a UFC Bantamweight Championship rematch between current two-time champion T.J. "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. Dillashaw is welcome to the opportunity of Cejudo stepping up to 135 to take a crack at the belt.

"I want the belt". 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. "And I really don't believe he's got a chin". I had the composure to win this fight.

"I knew I was gonna flip the script on him", Dillashaw said.
