TJ Dillashaw KO's Cody Garbrandt to win UFC Bantamweight Title

Bantamweight title: Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw live round-by-round coverage

Garbrandt would opt to play head games, waving Dillashaw in like a matador early in the round after his opponent whiffed on an attack. He refused to touch gloves with Dillashaw prior to the fight.

Round 1. Garbrandt starts with a body kick.

Towards the end of the round now and Garbrandt lands a bombing right hand that floors Dillashaw, but the bell saves him.

The pair have an old feud dating back a number of years after Dillashaw quit Garbrandt's Team Alpha Male training camp. "I don't go to battle alone". I'm going to see him again. "Demetrious Johnson I'm coming for you!"

Garbrandt gets to his knees but he's still badly rocked and isn't defending himself, so as the punches continue to rain down the referee has seen enough and brings the fight to an end, handing Dillashaw a massive TKO victory over his bitter rival to reclaim the bantamweight title!

Following the knockout, Dillashaw had nothing but good things to say about his former teammate. "He holds his hands a little bit low anyway, so I was looking to take advantage of it", said Dillashaw.

He added, admitting he had been hurt by the knockdown: "The kid is fast".

The dance moves of "No Love", first seen when he claimed his title against Dominick Cruz last December, showed themselves in the early stages of the second and he looked considerably more comfortable on the feet up to the point that he ate a head kick from Dillashaw, a strike which spun the fight on its head.

"[The bantamweight title] should've been around my waist the whole time", Dillashaw said. He hits hard. You can condition your chin. "I should still be the champion and I am the champion". The better shape you are and the better chin you have. Listen, you can't be in a position where you're like "I want $2 million, f*ck you, I don't care what you make". (Expletive) you. I don't care what you make.
