Former teammates turned bitter rivals Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw entered the Octagon on Saturday in a bantamweight title bout with all the makings to be the best of the year in 2017. "Step up, be a man of your word, and let's get this fight going". As T.J. escaped, Garbrandt would try to wave him in, but Dillashaw refused to take the bait. Garbrandt would unleash a flurry of strikes with just over two minutes remaining in the first, putting Dillashaw in trouble. In an exchange, a thunderous right hook floored Garbrandt; Dillashaw jumped on the fallen champion and added blow after blow until Big Dan waved the fight off. After defeating Garbrandt in the co-main event at UFC 217, Dillashaw once again voiced his desire to fight Johnson, who recently broke the UFC record for title defenses. But almost two years later, he earned revenge and now has his sights on a super fight with P4P kind and flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

"The reason why I look so lean at 135 pounds is the way I work".

However, Dillashaw now has his eye on fighting pound-for-pound No.1 and long-time flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, which is also an exceptional match-up.

White had a response for that one, too. I'm not a big (bantamweight). "But I stack on, I stay lean, I keep my diet, I've kept on my diet since The Ultimate Fighter".

"He's a partner in the pay-per-view", White said. "Let's see what your PPV does, you're a partner, let's see what you make". "Demetrious Johnson I'm coming for you!" (Expletive) you. I don't care what you make.

While the stoppage was certainly warranted - Cody was not intelligently defending himself - he was still moving and very much conscious in immediately going head-to-head with the victor. "See what he says".
