TJ Dillashaw Says Demetrious Johnson Can't Run Anymore, Calls Him Out

The dance moves of "No Love", first seen when he claimed his title against Dominick Cruz last December, showed themselves in the early stages of the second and he looked considerably more comfortable on the feet up to the point that he ate a head kick from Dillashaw, a strike which spun the fight on its head.

"That belt has been around my waist the whole time in my mind".

Dillashaw (15-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) stunned Garbrandt (11-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) with a head kick, then moments later planted him again with a right hand before finishing him with a series of punches on the ground.

While the stoppage was certainly warranted - Cody was not intelligently defending himself - he was still moving and very much conscious in immediately going head-to-head with the victor. 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.

The rivalry between the two fighters, who opposed each other early in 2017 as coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter", got juicy during fight week when Garbrandt released sparring footage of him dropping Dillashaw. "He stood up and I was just excited". I was fighting number one contenders.

The two were almost scheduled to fight at one point, and not long ago too.

"This isn't the end of Cody Garbrandt".

"The kid is fast". I should still be the champion.

"You've got that record and it's fake". He hits hard. You can condition your chin. Demetrious Johnson, I'm coming for you. I'm getting that belt. "The better shape you are, the better your chin is". It took me a year-and-a-half - well actually, nearly two years - to get it. I bounced right back.
