UFC 227 featured an intense rematch as bantamweight king T.J. Dillashaw took on former bantamweight champ and #1 ranked contender Cody ‘No Love’ Garbrandt.
As the best way to end any rivalry in MMA is to defeat your opponent in an undisputed manner and Dillashaw did the same. It was a knockout last time and it is a knockout this time for Dillashaw as well. However it didn’t take more than a round for Dillashaw this time to get the job done.
Dillashaw wobbled Garbrandt multiple times and landed a knee to end the show. Dillashaw believes Garbrandt has a susceptible chin which led to his defeat.
“I think he has some technical problems that he needs to fix,” Dillashaw said at the post-fight press conference, per MMA Fighting. “And I really don’t believe he’s got a chin. He plays a dangerous game. He likes to get in there and he likes to slug it.”
Garbrandt coming from a boxing background might have taken considerable amount of damage on his chin.
