TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt will revisit their grudge match at UFC 227, which takes place at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, Aug. 4. Sports fans can get tickets to this action-packed rematch through AXS.
Dillashaw (16-3) is the reigning UFC Men's Bantamweight Champion, having reclaimed the belt from Garbrandt by knocking him out at UFC 217 in November; you can watch the teaser for that fight by playing the video above. Garbrandt (11-1) will be looking to get back in the win column and back on top of the division by returning the favor. The two have a very public history of bad blood stemming from Dillashaw's departure from Garbrandt's Team Alpha Male training camp, which was previously played out when they coached against each other on "The Ultimate Fighter" last summer.
That means not only will there be a UFC championship on the line in August, but a whole lot of personal pride, especially since neither Dillashaw nor Garbrandt has fought after their November battle.
According to the official UFC fight card, UFC 227's main card also includes Polyana Viera vs. "Ultimate Fighter" alum JJ Aldrich, Ricardo Ramos vs. Kyung Ho Kang, Wuliji Buren vs. Bharat Kandare, Bethe Correia vs. Irene Aldana, and Cub Swanson vs. Renato Carneiro. A preliminary card has yet to be announced, so more fights will be added to the Aug. 4 schedule.
But the main event is understandably the chance for TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt to get one more shot at each other. Will Dillashaw hold onto his newly re-earned title belt and prove that he is the superior MMA fighter to Garbrandt? Or will Garbrandt steal the bantamweight title right back, despite not having been able to defend the title once when he had it? Both of these men have something to prove, both will fight hard to come out on top, and it's an event that UFC fans absolutely cannot miss this summer. Luckily, you don't have to because AXS will have your UFC 227 tickets on sale next month.
