Johnson, Dillashaw favourites to defend titles on UFC 227 odds

UFC 227: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt 2 Post-Fight Press Conference

In the main event moments later, T.J. Dillashaw successfully defended his bantamweight title with a vicious first-round stoppage of former champion Cody Garbrandt, beating his friend-turned-rival for the second time in nine months.

Cejudo earned a rematch thanks to two straight rebound victories and the utter lack of more compelling contenders for Johnson, who had been content to stay at flyweight instead of chasing bigger-money bouts at bantamweight, where he fought earlier in his career.

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. The 27-year-old had reached the top of the bantamweight division with a unanimous decision win over Cruz as a +185 underdog at UFC 207, and returns to the octagon for a second tilt with Dillashaw as a narrow -105 underdog.

Many Americans who went missing were prisoners of war who died before the war ended or were left behind during enemy advancements. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last week that the USA did not know whose remains were actually in the returned caskets.

Cejudo will make his second bid for the UFC flyweight title pegged as a +350 underdog on the UFC 227 odds after picking up wins in his past two outings, including a second-round TKO win over Wilson Reis last September at UFC Edmonton that earned him his first Performance of the Night bonus since joining the UFC in 2014. From Olympic gold medalist to UFC champion.

"I am the best bantamweight of all time".

Above is live video of the event's post-fight press conference which kicks off approximately 30 minutes after the main event between Dillashaw and Garbrandt comes to a close (courtesy of the UFC). It was also the right hand that put him away in the first fight at UFC 217.

With a ferocious first-round knockout in the night's main event, TJ Dillashaw emphatically shut the door on his rivalry with Cody Garbrandt. Also, Dillashaw said he would welcome a challenge from Cejudo, so the superfight is a possibility as well.

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.

The rematch was another high-contact affair, but Dillashaw's chin was just a little better and his punching accuracy that much sharper and it was all that was necessary. "America is all about winners and the victor of this next fight, I want to fight that guy. I'm going up and I want that belt too". I really believe that. I wanna fight the victor at 135 pounds. I dropped him with that left kick.
