Cody Garbrandt Still Believes "I'm The Better" Fighter

Cody Garbrandt

When then-bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt pulled out of their scheduled title fight at UFC 200, Dillashaw entertained fighting Johnson while waiting for Garbrandt's health to return.

Dillashaw improved to 16-3-0 in his MMA career and earned his second UFC bantamweight championship with the knockout of Garbrandt.

In this c, Cody Garbrandt, right, celebrates as he receives.

"Demetrious can't run from this one, it's too big", Dillashaw told the media at the UFC 217 post-fight press conference.

Dillashaw had spurned his old training camp, Team Alpha Male, which Garbradnt is now a member of.

After the referee stepped in, Dillashaw stayed next to Garbrandt and screamed toward him.

However, Dillashaw split the camp in October 2015 to follow his favoured head coach Duane Ludwig to Elevation Fight Team in Denver, igniting bad blood between the two camps ever since. Get out there, use your motion, don't go into his fight. "He doesn't deserve a rematch", Dillashaw said after the fight, according to He's young. I'll see him again.

Both fighters were cautious through the first 90 seconds of the title bout, but that flew out the window midway through the frame.

Dillashaw added what he feels Garbrandt will have to do to get a rematch and opened up on one of the holes in his game that he exposed during their fight.

The finish was made all the more impressive by the fact Dillashaw was badly hurt in the first round. You know, I don't think he actually has a chin. "I am the champion, this is my belt". I was kicking low, kicking his body, kicking low, but I slowly had the finish. (Expletive) you. I don't care what you make.
