UFC 227: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt 2 Post-Fight Press Conference
05 August, 2018, 22:53
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.
The UFC may find it hard to turn down a champ vs. champ fight, but I believe that fans would be more interested in seeing one of the greatest fighters of all-time redeem himself.
Garbrandt, 27, landed a few right hands that appeared to have an effect on Dillashaw, but once he began to lose control of the bout, he never reclaimed it. Dillashaw suffered a small mouse under his right eye, but he continued to keep a pace on Garbrandt.
It gave Dillashaw his second-straight stoppage win over Garbrandt after taking the belt from his rival with a second-round finish at UFC 217 last November in a fight that saw Dillashaw dropped early but bounced back to win by KO.
A brilliant night of fights went down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Saturday Night (August 4th, 2018).

Above is live video of the event's post-fight press conference which kicks off approximately 30 minutes after the main event between Dillashaw and Garbrandt comes to a close (courtesy of the UFC). Dillashaw took his back and rained down some ground-and-pound, but Garbrandt managed to get back up even though he was clearly on auto-pilot at that point.
The rematch was another high-contact affair, but Dillashaw's chin was just a little better and his punching accuracy that much sharper and it was all that was necessary.
T.J. Dillashaw has finally slammed the door shut on his long standing rivalry with former teammate Cody Garbandt.
"Wherever [UFC president] Dana White is, I felt disrespected this whole time", Cejudo said. Garbrandt then took the belt from Cruz in December 2016, less than two years after he entered the UFC. "And the victor of this next bout, I wanna fight that guy". I had the composure to win this fight. I really believe that.
Asked about a potential super fight with Cejudo, Dillashaw said, "It sounds like a fun fight". Moraes is a well-rounded fighter and a former World Series of Fighting champion - I wouldn't be surprised to see him pull out a victory over Dillashaw.
But his most powerful tribute went to his mother, whom he credited for showing him what a hard work ethic was growing up. Needless to say, Owens still holds a grudge against the sports media who determined his fate on the Hall of Fame ballot.
