UFC 227's Bantamweight Championship Rematch: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt | Oakland

UFC 227's Bantamweight Championship Rematch: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt | Oakland

Here at UFC 227, the bad blood will be settled yet again.

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.

But Cejudo stood up to the test and when the time came to read out the judges' scorecards, the heavy underdog was given the split decision nod, becoming only the second flyweight champion in UFC history.

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).

In the main event moments later, Dillashaw defended his bantamweight title with a vicious first-round stoppage of former champ Cody Garbrandt, beating his friend-turned-rival for the second time in nine months. I could tell that Cody was already hurt when we started that exchange and then I lined up the shot.

Cody Garbrandt has the reputation as a big puncher, but for the second time in as many fights, it was T.J. Dillashaw doing most of the damage.

In addition, Garbrandt knocked Dillashaw down and had him in trouble late in the first round of the first fight, but the bell sounded and Garbrandt believes it saved him.

After his historic flyweight title win, Cejudo said he wanted a crack at the bantamweight title next, and a shot at the night's main event victor. I've lost before, when I fought Dom (Dominick Cruz).

After the result, Dillashaw welcomed a challenge by newly crowned flyweight champion Henry Cejudo.

Dillashaw said: "Bring it, baby".

The rematch was a different kind of contest entirely as Cejudo, an Olympic gold medallist in freestyle wrestling, rallied from an early ankle injury to repeatedly disrupt the rhythm of "Mighty Mouse" with takedowns in the first of two title fights in Los Angeles. He added that Johnson "absolutely" deserves a rematch with Cejudo.
