Later this year, UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will defend his bantamweight championship for the first time as he steps into the Octagon against former teammate TJ Dillashaw for a highly anticipated scrap.
Leading up to Garbrandt’s UFC 207 scrap with Dominick Cruz, former Team Alpha Male teammate TJ Dillashaw took to Twitter to allege that he had made Garbrandt cry in training when the pair trained together at Team Alpha Male. This lead to a back and forth between the two men over the course of the next several weeks as Garbrandt and Dillashaw lobbed insults at one another as Garbrandt claimed to have footage of himself knocking out Dillashaw in training. In addition, ‘No Love’ claimed that he had footage of himself knocking out the former champ. Ultimately, the UFC decided to cash in on the beef and book both men to coach opposite each other on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, with the pair meeting in the Octagon for Garbrandt’s bantamweight belt at the end of the season.
While both men have been relatively silent since the booking, Garbrandt took to social media today to take shots at his former teammate as he posted an old photo of both men wearing ‘Team No Love’ shirts:
While there has been no word yet from Dillashaw, if fight fans can bet on one thing, it is that Dillashaw will likely be very quick to respond to the post.
