UFC RESULTS: T.J Dillashaw finishes Cody Garbrandt, regains bantam weight belt.

The UFC’s bantamweight belt was on the line in the UFC 217 co-main events, as the #2 ranked T.J. Dillashaw knocked out Cody Garbrandt to once again become the UFC’s 135-pound king. Dillashaw overcame being dropped at the end of the opening round to rally back and secure the win. The former teammates hugged it out after the fight, so perhaps the bad blood has been diluted a bit.
