Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight champion, TJ Dillashaw, will defend his 135-pound strap against top contender and former titleholder Cody Garbrandt in the upcoming UFC 227 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled for this Sat. night (Aug. 4, 2018) inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Dillashaw (15-3) and Garbrandt (11-1) first went to war at UFC 217 last November, with “No Love” getting stopped by way of second-round technical knockout. Their bitter rivalry, as well as a lack of top-ranked contenders, has prompted the promotion to book an immediate rematch.
Check out their UFC 227 media day face off above, as well as the co-main event face off between reigning flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and top 125-pound contender Henry Cejudo.
