TJ Dillashaw KO’s Cody Garbrandt To Retain The Bantamweight Title

TJ Dillashaw KO’s Cody Garbrandt To Retain The Bantamweight Title

And after Dillashaw stopped Garbrandt in the main event to cement his position as the UFC's bantamweight world champion, UFC analyst Joe Rogan put Cejudo's challenge to him, and received an emphatic answer.

This ends Johnson's streak of 11 straight title defenses and makes Cejudo just the second flyweight champion in UFC history.

On believing he tore his lateral collateral ligament and broke his foot: "I remember we were scrambling, and I maybe shot, and then he kind of pushed me over, and I rolled over my right knee, and I felt the pop, and I was like, 'There goes the right LCL - fantastic".

Garbrandt, clearly feeling the pace, was caught with a right hand as he looked for a takedown, giving Dillashaw the opportunity he needed to swarm against his opponent who was now trapped against the fence.

The quake felt in parts of neighbouring island Bali, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. Residents in Lombok's main city Mataram described a strong jolt that sent people scrambling out of buildings.

That Garbrandt, 27, put Dillashaw on the canvas in Round 1 was no surprise as Garbrandt has at least one knockdown in all seven of his UFC fights and averages 1.91 knockdowns per 15 minutes of fight time.

After Saturday night's win in Los Angeles, Dillashaw erased any lingering doubts over which of the pair was the better man, thanks to an even more decisive performance. In his post-fight interview, Cejudo said he wants to move up to face the bantamweight champion in a superfight to attempt to become a two-weight world champion.

Cejudo was born in Los Angeles, and he won an Olympic gold medal in freestyle wrestling as a 21-year-old phenomenon in 2008, becoming the youngest American to win a gold medal.

Henry Cejudo ended Demetrious Johnson's almost six-year reign as flyweight champion, earning a split-decision victory in a stunning upset at UFC 227 in Los Angeles. He added that Johnson "absolutely" deserves a rematch with Cejudo.

However, under the Trump administration, automakers sensed an opportunity, lobbying to roll back the fuel efficiency requirements. In fact, fuel economy standards end up saving motorists money, as drivers burn a lot less fuel than they otherwise would.

Dillashaw retains the 135lb title he won from Garbrandt last year, in doing so consigning the Team Alpha Male fighter to the bottom of the ladder less than a year after he was its undisputed champion. "And the victor of this next bout, I wanna fight that guy".

Although Dillashaw accepted Henry Cejudo's call-out, in my opinion, Marlon Moraes should be the next challenger for the bantamweight championship.

Asked about a potential super fight with Cejudo, Dillashaw said, "It sounds like a fun fight". He probably has to give a rematch to Demetrious Johnson.

"I knew I was gonna flip the script on him", Dillashaw said.
