Bantamweight title: Cody Garbrandt vs

Cody Garbrandt

The UFC 217 co-main event bantamweight title fight is underway at Madison Square Garden!

Garbrandt credits a young fan for pushing him to continue on with his UFC career.

Understandably aggrieved at suffering his first professional loss, Cody proceeded to storm over to Dillashaw's corner before telling UFC president Dana White of his desire to "go to sleep", rather than have the fight stopped as it was, as can be seen in the below video via FightAffect.

The champion reached his feet quickly as they began to trade punches at close ranger. Dillashaw showcased his patented feints and movement in the early exchanges while Garbrandt found home with his counter-punching.

United States military officials and others in recent months have expressed concern that Somali forces are not yet ready. Witnesses in some previous attacks have said al Shabab fighters disguised themselves by wearing military uniforms.

Garbrandt on Thursday night posted a video on his Instagram account Thursday night that he said was gym footage of him knocking out Dillashaw in a sparring session. I'm going to see him again. Dillashaw would take some momentum back with a big head kick that dropped the champion! Congratulations [to Garbrandt], man. The two came to blows while coaching their respective teams on The Ultimate Fighter. But Dillashaw had the last word - for now - on Saturday. Landing a head kick was part of Dillahsaw's game plan.

He added, admitting he had been hurt by the knockdown: "The kid is fast. The better shape you are, the better your chin is".

Dillashaw, who lost his title in January 2016 via split decision to Dominick Cruz, was never given the chance to redeem himself in a rematch.

Cody Garbrandt may not have won the UFC Bantamweight Championship last night against TJ Dillashaw, but it was Garbrandt's inspiration to fight that made him the real victor. This is my belt. Listen, you can't be in a position where you're like "I want $2 million, f*ck you, I don't care what you make".
