TJ Dillashaw Breaks Down Cody Garbrandt's Mistakes After UFC 227 Win

Demetrious Johnson

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.

Cejudo's 48-47, 47-48, 48-47 win over Johnson not only made him only the second man in history to hold the UFC flyweight title, it also meant he became the first athlete to hold an Olympic gold medal and a UFC world title. That was the final sequence of the TKO, but it was a pair of right hands that really put Garbrandt in trouble. Garbrandt will look to match Dillashaw as a two-time champion, whereas Dillashaw will try to cement his legacy with another victory. The UFC would be wise to build him up with a couple of winnable fights before matching him up with another high-level opponent.

With the win, Dillashaw moves to 17-3. Dillashaw remained composed and landed more shots against the fence, including a huge knee that had Garbrandt out on his feet before the referee stepped in.

"I love to fight and I thank you all for your support", said Dillashaw from The Octagon at Staples Center.

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.

T.J. Dillashaw has finally slammed the door shut on his long standing rivalry with former teammate Cody Garbandt.

PETA director Elisa Allen said: "This bag suits Meghan Markle's fashion sensibility and animal-friendly attitudes to a T. Please join me in a chorus of "NOOOOOOOOOOOO".

Cejudo ended Demetrious Johnson's almost six-year reign as the UFC flyweight champion Saturday night at Staples Center, earning a split-decision victory over the most dominant active champion in the sport.

"I most definitely did [shock the world]", Cejudo said.

Cejudo, 31, a native of Los Angeles, took home the decision on judges' scores of 48-47 (twice), which was the same score the third judge had in favor of Johnson. Demetrious Johnson didn't go up (to bantamweight). "But if they make that, I'm excited".

The new champion called for a fight with bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw, but it would be an absolute disgrace if Johnson is not granted an immediate rematch. Before the opening frame closed, Cejudo briefly took Johnson down and also appeared to land a hard left. For the champion, a rematch against former bantamweight king Dominick Cruz seems to be on the horizon.

Cejudo won his first 10 pro fights to earn his first shot at Johnson, but Mighty Mouse stopped him with a flurry of punches in the first round of their first meeting 28 months ago. I know what I can do with that right hand.
