TJ Dillashaw comes back from the brink to viciously knock out Cody Garbrandt
It didn't take any persuading to get bitter rivals and former teammates Cody Garbrandt and T.J. It took me a year-and-a-half - well actually, nearly two years - to get it.
So, though White hadn't talked to Johnson by the time he stood in front of media after UFC 217, he doesn't see many reasons why "Mighty Mouse" wouldn't be more open to the fight now. Garbrandt pressed forward with a flurry that got Dillashaw's attention. 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. (Johnson) broke his (title-defense) record. While the flyweight champ had his doubts about Dillashaw making the 125-pound limit, the newly reinstated bantamweight titleholder says that, while it will involve somewhat of a lifestyle change, it is a doable one considering his process to make 135 pounds now. "He holds his hands a little bit low anyway, so I was looking to take advantage of it", said Dillashaw. "This one's too big".
White on Demetrious Johnson wanting $2 million for a possible fight with Dillashaw: "He's a partner in the pay-per-view. But I stack on, I stay lean, I keep my diet, I've kept on my diet since The Ultimate Fighter". However, these two fighters are young enough that you'd have to imagine that this isn't the last we've seen of them in the Octagon together, and as fight fans that's defintely something to look forward to! Listen, you can't be in a position where you're like "I want $2 million, f*ck you, I don't care what you make".
That comes soon after I write that as Dillashaw goes for a kick and then Garbrandt comes charging forward with quick hands and puts DIllashaw in reverse gear. "You dodged me and I'm coming for that belt".
