Dillashaw and Garbrandt fought an incredible battle at the UFC 217 meeting, the culmination of several months of discussions about waste and heat coming from the departure of his former teammate Alpha Alpha’s hero.
During the fight, Dillashaw found success with his kicks, but Garbrandt took over in the first heat and dropped him late. Dillashaw recovered and started his times slightly better markers per second, resulting in a stop. Here is a preview of the complete battle:
With similar methods and the desire to trade with their competitors, it must be another battle that can go both ways. Garberandt has raw energy power, but Dillashaw is the most cohesive fighter, and his advantage with kicking will allow him to maintain the distance he needs.
Johnson has not lost since 2011 and holds the UFC record for most consecutive titles, with 11 wins in a row. One of them ran against Cejudo at UFC 197, a one-sided battle ended with a stop in the first round.
Cejudo found success with his early eviction, but on his feet he had no chance against Mighty Mouse. These fights took place in April 2016, however, Cejudo has improved since.
