Cody Garbrandt goes down again after another right hook!
Unfortunately as Garbrandt then charged forward by thinking there was blood in the water, Dillashaw unleashed a perfectly timed counter right hand that dropped the OH native down to the canvas. 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 am the best bantamweight of all time".
There is talk of a fight between TJ Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz, however, Cruz needs to win against a top contender before being granted a shot at the title.
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.
He got up, though, and went right back at it with Dillashaw because it's the only way he knows how to fight.
One of the the most successful runs in UFC history came to an end inside the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on Saturday, as Demetrious Johnson was beaten for just the second time in his career (and for the first time at 125lbs) by Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo. There is a very big card coming up in NY with numerous top guys from my division on it and I would like to join them.
Although Dillashaw accepted Henry Cejudo's call-out, in my opinion, Marlon Moraes should be the next challenger for the bantamweight championship.
The win definitely puts Dillashaw in an enviable position as the reigning and defending bantamweight champion after dispatching Garbrandt in back-to-back fights. If anyone deserves an immediate rematch, it's Johnson, who suffered his first loss in seven years.
"It wasn't anything in sparring", Dillashaw said.
Not long into the bout, Cejudo appeared to roll his left ankle, and for several moments, he had trouble putting weight on it. Johnson fired off a steady stream of kicks for the remainder of the round, and blitzed in with the odd flurry. I was born right here in Los Angeles, in a two bedroom apartment so, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to these fans in California for their support.
