Garbrandt is maintaining a compact, orthodox posture while Dillashaw is moving around and giving different looks.

The UFC held a press conference Thursday, in advance of the promotion's all-star card on Saturday, and once again, Cody Garbrandt had some choice words for his former teammate T.J. Dillashaw.

Garbrandt captured the UFC bantamweight title from another Alpha Male rival in Dominick Cruz and now he will get a crack at Dillashaw.

Dillashaw on how to beat Garbrandt: "He's got a lot of holes in his game".

And what a recovery he made.

Stoke City 2-2 Leicester City: What Twitter said
Referee Bobby Madley had to be substituted during the Stoke vs Leicester clash at the bet365 Stadium after picking a calf injury. If you can get a clean sheet, we know we've got the players that can win us games.

The finish came shortly after Dillashaw dropped Garbrandt with a right hand in the pocket. Garbrandt appeared to be unhurt, but a right hand moments later hurt him and sent him to the deck. This bout will largely be won by who can keep their emotions under control the best, and not let past betrayals and personal hatred cloud the undoubted technical ability that both fighter possesses in abundance. "He's talented, quick and powerful, but one dimensional and I'm going to take advantage of him". Dillashaw misses with a hook and Garbrandt blasts to the body and head. Garbrandt released footage yesterday of himself knocking Dillashaw down with a right hand when they were training partners at Team Alpha Male.

Dillashaw on how it will feel beating Garbrandt: "It'll be great to get my belt back". A back injury delayed his fight with Dillashaw, 31, who lost the title to Cruz in January 2016, from the summer. Dillashaw rocked his opponent with a shot and finished Garbrandt.

Whether that was Garbrandt in the Instagram clip or not, this much is accurate: He has power.

"I was just yelling", Dillashaw said.

Of course, the fight itself will only be helped by the height of the emotion and the pair's fiery dynamic and regardless of the politics of it all, the fans can expect an absolute treat with this one. "You should have been fighting me", he said. "I'm coming after you Demetrious Johnson". "You're nearly there.' I said 'I promise you that I'll make it to the UFC and I'll take you to every fight and I'll win the world title'".
