By FCF Staff
Cody Garbrandt’s first opponent as the UFC’s new bantamweight champ will be former teammate and champ, TJ Dillashaw.
The promotion has announced that Garbrandt and Dillashaw will be the coaches for the 25th Season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, which will premiere on April 19th. The season will feature welterweight fighters who have competed on TUF before, and the cast will reportedly include one current roster member.
The announcement also states that Dillashaw will face Garbrandt after the season finishes, but no official date was included.
Garbrandt won the 135 title at UFC 207 in December by scoring a decision win over Dominick Cruz. Dillashaw also fought at the event and earned a decision win over contender John Lineker.
