Once Team Alpha Male sparring mates, Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw will bring their hatred for each other and their thirst to be the champion into the UFC 217 octagon Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.
Garbrandt will defend his bantamweight belt for the first time against Dillashaw, himself a former champ who’s now the division’s second-ranked contender. Dillashaw lost the title in January 2016 to Dominick Cruz, who then lost it to Garbrandt. Now it’ll be Dillashaw, who left Team Alpha Male, against Garbrandt, and if the pre-fight press conference was any indication, this will be one heck of a bout.
UFC bantamweight Rob Font joined Tyler Sullivan in the DK Live studio to discuss the Garbrandt versus Dillashaw fight, and what sets each fighter apart in their quest for UFC glory. You can see Font’s breakdown of the fight in the video player above.
