Cody Garbrandt came up short in his first bout with TJ Dillashaw last November, but the former bantamweight champ sounds pretty confident and balanced, as he gets set for the rematch tonight.
The former teammates fought for the first time at UFC 217, in what was one of the biggest grudge matches of the year. Dillashaw ended Garbrandt’s run as champ, by taking him out in the second round.
Well, eventually the UFC decided to tap Garbrandt for an immediate rematch, and they’ll throw hands tonight at UFC 227.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features Garbrandt discussing tonight’s scrap, and him saying that Dillashaw does not bother him as much, as he once did…
