It seems like this TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt feud has been going on forever. Since the beginning, we’ve gone through the Duane Ludwig controversy, the allegations of steroid use, Dillashaw injuring another Team Alpha Male member in training, but at the beginning of this year it was all about training footage. Garbrandt claimed he knocked out Dillashaw in training and threatened to release the tape. Dillashaw called Garbrandt’s bluff and after awhile, the talk stopped. That is, until now. Just days before the two settle their differences at UFC 217, Garbrandt drops the video.
“This guy is a liar he said I never koed him, that there is no video! Also that he has never took PEDs and he never cheap shotted a former teammate stealing his dream from under him! Fuck you @tjdillashaw hey @danawhite get that Knockout Bonus Check, I’m ready to collect it!! #ISpeakFacts” — Cody Garbrandt from his official Instagram.
It’s grainy, it’s hard to make out, and it stops right after TJ Dillashaw gets dropped, but Cody Garbrandt certainly wasn’t lying about having the footage. This looks like one of the times Garbrandt put Dominick Cruz on his back from an exchange. If he can reliably do the same to TJ Dillashaw, the former bantamweight champion will be in for a rough night. Not to say an isolated clip has any implications with the real thing takes place on Sautrday night, but this sure is some nice extra heat to go into the fight with.
