Dillashaw KOs Garbrandt for UFC title, calls out Demetrious Johnson

Dillashaw got in a right hand with 15 seconds left in the round.

Dillashaw floored Garbrandt with a right hand to the jaw that sent the defending champion to his back.

TJ Dillashaw has returned to sit atop the UFC's bantamweight throne. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Saturday night in New York City at UFC 217, former Alpha Male teammates now bitter rivals met in the cage to settle what had become a very personal score.

The two coached opposite each other earlier this year on "The Ultimate Fighter", where their bad blood frequently was on display. Not only that, but Holdsworth referred to Dillashaw as a "cheater", and claimed the latter took "special supplements".

"It's all happening at the ideal time, when it came out, the week of the fight", added Dillashaw, who also denied injuring Holdsworth a couple of years back. Dillashaw with a body kick, and a leg kick behind it. Dillashaw with the loose movements again and they meet in the middle.

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.

Garbrandt seemingly found it hard to gauge the distance but exploded into life with a vicious flurry of his own shortly before the three-minute mark.

Midway through the round, Garbrandt put together a combination that almost took Dillashaw off his feet. Cody is hurt, but answers with a left hand. Dillashaw went for a takedown, but got shoved off. Garbrandt got dropped with a head kick. Dillashaw took over from there, however, and connected with a counter right hand that dropped Garbrandt a second time. Another exchange and Dillashaw lands a punch.

Following the knockout, Dillashaw had nothing but good things to say about his former teammate.

Dillashaw quickly leaped in for a flurry of hammer punches before Miragliotta stopped the fight at 2:41.

From there, Dillashaw called out dominant 125-pound flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, who he tried to fight earlier this year but Johnson preferred another matchup.
