UFC 217 results: TJ Dillashaw finishes rival Cody Garbrandt to reclaim 135-pound title

The bad blood between Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw finally got a chance to boil over Saturday night, and an ex-champ got his title back.

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. The end came at the 2:41 mark of the second round – and came after Dillashaw was saved by the bell in the first round when Garbrandt nearly had him finished.

The bantamweight title bout was the co-main event of today’s UFC 217 event at Madison Square Garden in New York. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Dillashaw and Garbrandt had become heated rivals in the lead-up to the highly anticipated title fight. They were teammates at the famed Team Alpha Male camp in Sacramento, Calif., before Dillashaw left the camp with former coach Duane Ludwig.

The two coached opposite each other earlier this year on “The Ultimate Fighter,” where their bad blood frequently was on display. But Dillashaw had the last word – for now – on Saturday.
