TJ Dillashaw moved to 2-0 against his rival tonight at UFC 227, in what was a wild and short main event.
The fight kicked off without too much action, but mid round, both bantamweights started firing big punches. Garbrandt appeared to tag Dillashaw with a hard punch, but the champ planted a big counter that sent “No Love” to the deck.
Garbrandt got back to his feet, and valiantly fought on, but Dillashaw continued to swarm with strikes along the cage fence. As a standing Garbrand took punishment along the cage, referee Herb Dean stopped the bout. The fight marks the second time Dillashaw has stopped Garbrandt, as he also did so last November.
