TJ Dillashaw T.J. Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt UFC


411’s Official MMA Rankings

Bantamweight Division (135 pounds)


1) T.J. Dillashaw (16-3)

Height: 5’6

Birthday: February 7, 1986

Currently Fighting With: UFC

Last 5 fights:

– vs. Cody Garbrandt – Win via TKO (strikes) – UFC 227 – August 4, 2018

– vs. Cody Garbrandt – Win via KO (strikes) – UFC 217 – November 4, 2017

– vs. John Lineker – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC 207 – December 30, 2016

– vs. Raphael Assuncao – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC 200 – July 9, 2016

– vs. Dominick Cruz – Loss via decision (split) – UFC Fight Night – January 17, 2016

Next scheduled appearance:

– Unknown

Comment: Dillashaw beat Cody Garbrandt in even more of a decisive performance than their first fight last year. The win also marked the first successful title defense of the UFC bantamweight title in over two years since Dominick Cruz beat Urijah Faber at UFC 199. Don’t expect another one of those however, because according to Dillashaw, the UFC may be looking to book him in a flyweight championship fight with Henry Cejudo. T.J. would be intent on dropping down in weight for such an opportunity to win another UFC strap.




2) Cody Garbrandt (11-2)

Height: 5’7

Birthday: July 7, 1991

Currently Fighting With: UFC

Last 5 fights:

– vs. T.J. Dillashaw – Loss via TKO (strikes) – UFC 227 – August 4, 2018

Next scheduled appearance:

– Unknown

Comment: Now having lost consecutive fights by KO/TKO, Garbrandt has to focus on a non-title fight in 2019. With Marlon Moraes and Raphael Assuncao the top contenders at 135, will either jump at the chance to either give Garbandt a three-fight losing streak or give him the platform to reverse course?
