Report: TJ Dillashaw – Cody Garbrandt Planned For UFC 227
By FCF Staff
It looks like Cody Garbrandt is going to receive an immediate rematch with TJ Dillashaw, as it’s being reported the bout is planned for UFC 227.
Garbrandt (11-1) lost the bantamweight title to Dillashaw last November, via a second round, stoppage defeat. According to a report from ESPN, sources have informed the outlet the rematch is set for the August 4th card.
Dillashaw (15-3) campaigned for a bout with flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson next, but the superfight never materialized. The reigning 135 champ also hasn’t fought since he took out Garbrandt at UFC 217.
UFC 227 will take place in Los Angeles, California.
