TJ Dillashaw managed to improve upon his UFC 217 victory over his great rival Cody Garbrandt with a finish in the very first round.
And while it was fun while it lasted, Dillashaw, once again, proved himself to be the better man.
Cody had been pretty calm in his demeanour in the leadup to the fight and many had speculated whether his cool-head could be the difference when he and TJ ran it back last night.
When he caught the champ and seemingly stunned him for a moment, though, the manner in which he rushed in for the kill gave Dillashaw the opportunity to counter him beautifully, signalling the beginning of the end for ‘No Love’.
Watch Dillashaw’s brutal finish below:
