Ahead of historic title shot, watch T.J. Dillashaw thrash Cody Garbrandt in rematch

The UFC’s latest superfight is only about a week away, and another titleholder will take a shot at becoming a dual champion.

UFC bantamweight champ T.J. Dillashaw (16-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) drops down 10 pounds to challenge for a second concurrent title against flyweight champ Henry Cejudo (13-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC).

The two headline UFC on ESPN+ 1, which takes place Jan. 19 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The main card streams on ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

How did we get here? Dillashaw beat Renan Barao to win the bantamweight title in 2014. He defended it twice, then lost it to Dominick Cruz in 2016. After Cruz lost it to Cody Garbrandt, Dillashaw got a crack at the belt – against his former Team Alpha Male teammate, with plenty of drama.

At UFC 217 in November 2017, Dillashaw won the title back with a second-round TKO. In a rematch this past August at UFC 227, Dillashaw got the job done again – even faster the second time around.

Ahead of the main event next week that sees Dillashaw go after the flyweight belt, check out his full second fight against Garbrandt in the video above.
