Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) may have just added a second title fight to its upcoming UFC 217 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for Nov. 4, 2017 inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Joining this welterweight scrap.
According to Cody Garbrandt, his pending bantamweight championship showdown against former 135-pound kingpin TJ Dillashaw has been rebooked for “The City Never That Never Sleeps.”
The promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
Garbrandt and Dillashaw were expected to settle their longstanding differences last month at the UFC 213 extravaganza in Las Vegas, Nevada, putting an end to a rivalry that started at Team Alpha Male and continued with The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 23, but “No Love” was suffering from back issues and was forced to delay his first title defense.
Dillashaw offered to fight Demetrious Johnson in the interim, but “Mighty Mouse” was not hearing any of that noise. We still have a long way to go before November, but this fight is long overdue.
Who ya’ got?
