The UFC has confirmed that the bantamweight title fight will be part of the upcoming card, which will go down at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The former teammates and now rivals were supposed to fight last month at UFC 213, but, Garbrandt had to pullout due to a back injury. “No Love” hasn’t fought since last December, when he took the 135 title from Dominick Cruz via unanimous decision.
Dillashaw, meanwhile, is coming off decision wins over John Lineker and Raphael Assuncao, since he lost the belt to Cruz in January,2016.
So, this is the second title fight that’s targeted for UFC 217, as Georges St-Pierre is expected to face middleweight champ Michael Bisping at the event.
