Garbrandt was most recently seen in action at December’s UFC 207 event in Las Vegas, where he captured the UFC bantamweight crown after scoring a lopsided decision win over Dominick Cruz and won a lot of new fans over by telling the story of his friendship with Maddux Maple who is a cancer survivor.
Since joining the UFC ranks “No Love” has gone a perfect 6-0, scoring victories over Marcus Brimage, Henry Briones, Augusto Mendes, Thomas Almeida, Takeya Mizugaki and the aforementioned Dominick Cruz in that time. He’s 11-1 overall.
Meanwhile, since losing his title to Dominick Cruz via a razor close judges decision, TJ Dillashaw has returned to form scoring dominant decision wins over top division contenders Raphael Assuncao and John Lineker. He’s 14-3 in sum.
