UFC 227: Longtime flyweight champ Johnson dethroned, Dillashaw ends Garbrandt rivalry

T.J. Dillashaw

Here are the results thus far for UFC 227.

Garbrandt, clearly feeling the pace, was caught with a right hand as he looked for a takedown, giving Dillashaw the opportunity he needed to swarm against his opponent who was now trapped against the fence. From Olympic gold medalist to UFC champion.

In true UFC form, during Cejudo's post-fight interview, the new belt holder called out the victor of UFC 227's other co-main event, TJ Dillashaw vs.

Dillashaw jumped on him and landed a number of hard shots to the face, and Garbrandt barely survived it. I got a little excited when I should've slowed down and finished him, but I got the job done.

It gave Dillashaw his second-straight stoppage win over Garbrandt after taking the belt from his rival with a second-round finish at UFC 217 last November in a fight that saw Dillashaw dropped early but bounced back to win by KO.

The Arab Coalition for the Support of Legitimacy in Yemen earlier accused the Houthi militias of carrying out the attacks. He said more than 22 million people, or 75 per cent of the population, require humanitarian assistance and protection.

After his historic flyweight title win, Cejudo said he wanted a crack at the bantamweight title next, and a shot at the night's main event victor.

While Dominick Cruz may have something to say about that, he has certainly provided ample evidence to support his claim.

After the result, Dillashaw welcomed a challenge by newly crowned flyweight champion Henry Cejudo. I only said Brian Ortega's name because he is ranked number one but my goal is to be world champion and I think I have earned my opportunity.

The fight didn't start out in Cejudo's favor as he appeared to turn an ankle in the opening round and limped at times as Johnson continued to switch stances and score with strikes from the outside. Although successful in striking, Johnson didn't have his usual resourceful performance in his return from a career-long layoff of 10 months. No. 8 in Johnson's run was a first-round TKO (knees to the body) win over Cejudo in April 2016. The PPV event takes place on Saturday in Los Angeles, with the preliminary card airing on FX and UFC Fight Pass. He now trains out of Los Angeles.

Two years after losing to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson via first-round TKO, Henry Cejudo was set on showing the world just how much he had improved. The luminaries at cageside included Matt Damon, Chris Pratt, Miles Teller, Mickey Rourke and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
