UFC 217 Results: TJ Dillashaw Knocks Out Cody Garbrandt

In Round 2, Dillashaw pressured Garbrandt and landed a hard head kick that put his opponent down briefly.

A possible meeting with T.J.

The past became reality when Garbrandt did the same in Round 1. Garbrandt swarmed for the finish, but time was up, and Dillashaw stumbled to his feet before regrouping in the corner. Garbrandt opens up shortly thereafter with a series of punches that back Dillashaw up.

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. Garbrandt proved that point just before the rounded ended, catching Dillashaw with a counter right that dropped him. Dillashaw then drops Garbrandt with a head kick.

Garbrandt's willingness to stand with Dillashaw in the pocket was ultimately the downfall of the previously undefeated fighter as a right hook sent him to the canvas. 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. "He holds his hands a little bit low anyway, so I was looking to take advantage of it", said Dillashaw.

In Dillashaw, we have a former-champion who was edged out on the scorecards in an absolute thriller against Dominick Cruz previous year - but apart from that title-loss, his recent form has seen him look nothing short of stellar. He's got his big fight now.

"This belt has been around my waist the whole time in my mind", Dillashaw said.

You can't condition your chin.

"I was fighting No 1 contenders and I should still be the champion". "Demetrious Johnson I'm coming for you!" "The better shape you are, the better your chin is". "You dodged me and I'm coming for that belt".
