UFC 227: Dillashaw vs Garbrandt 2 Betting Odds

TJ Dillashaw punches Cody Garbrandt during their UFC bantamweight title bout at UFC 217.

The first fight between TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt was a tactical firefight that had no hope of going the distance. Though it lasted less than eight minutes, everyone who watched it knew the rematch was coming sooner rather than later. Dillashaw, who won the first bout via TKO, opened as a -125 favorite with Garbrandt coming back at -105 for their rematch at UFC 227.

Bad blood between former teammates

For some background into the animosity between the two fighters, Garbrandt and Dillashaw used to train at the same gym, Team Alpha Male. Dillashaw left the gym in order to train with Elevation Fight Team. That split was far from amicable and tensions between the two sides have been high ever since.

breaking down dillashaw vs garbrandt

Dillashaw, who has won seven of his last eight fights, mixes an excellent combination of aggression and footwork to completely overwhelm his opponent in the striking game. TJ is also an accomplished wrestler at both the high school and university level.

Garbrandt, who was undefeated before his loss to Dillashaw, is experienced beyond his years, as the Ohioan was a state wrestling champion in high school and an accomplished amateur boxer. You can really see the boxing acumen, as he is a patient counterpuncher who throws every strike with fight-ending intentions.
