TJ Dillashaw Says He Is Ruining Cody Garbrandt’s Career


UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw holds two wins over former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt, with those victories coming at UFC 217 and UFC 227.

The champion has said in the past that he’d ruin Garbrandt’s career and the champion feels that’s exactly what is happening.

“Hell yeah I’m cool with how it unfolded,” Dillashaw said to MMA Junkie. “It’s exactly as I said it was going to go down. I told you I was going to knock him out in the first round, I did. I said I’d ruin his career, I’m doing it. The guy is screwed at 135. He should have went back to the drawing board and gotten better, but he talked his way into another ass-whooping.”

It is highly unlikely the two will meet again for the title, as the UFC rarely grants fighters a third opportunity against someone they have lost twice in a row to.

Dillashaw isn’t just happy to have beaten Garbrandt twice, but to also dish some humility to Team Alpha Male.

“I’m happy,” Dillashaw said. “It’s not only him, it’s the whole team. The whole team needed a f**king ass-whooping. They talked all that crap, they want to accuse me of a bunch of bulls**t. That’s the game. Karma’s a b**ch.”

There is no word yet on when Dillashaw will fight against, but UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo did challenge him to a super fight.
