Takeaways From UFC 227

Meanwhile, in the main event, former training partners turned bitter rivals TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt tangled for a second occasion and much like their first meeting in NY last November, it was Dillashaw who would emerge from the fight with bragging rights.

Dillashaw jumped on him and landed a number of hard shots to the face, and Garbrandt barely survived it.

The dramatic victory for Cejudo throws chaos to the sport's pound-for-pound rankings as Johnson, 31, entered not just as the universally renown best fighter in the sport but among a shortlist of those in contention for G.O.A.T. status.

T.J. Dillashaw improves his score to 16-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC, while Cody Garbrandt drops to 11-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC.

If you recall, their first fight went down at the UFC 217 pay-per-view event at Madison Square Garden in New York City in November where Dillashaw finished Garbrandt to win back the bantamweight title. Perhaps that could begin to change on Saturday night at UFC 227 in Los Angeles, a card that is headlined by title fights in the 125-pound and 135-pound divisions.

But Cejudo stood up to the test and when the time came to read out the judges' scorecards, the heavy underdog was given the split decision nod, becoming only the second flyweight champion in UFC history.

"I am the best bantamweight of all time", Dillashaw said in the Octagon.

He got up, though, and went right back at it with Dillashaw because it's the only way he knows how to fight. In his post-fight interview, Cejudo said he wants to move up to face the bantamweight champion in a superfight to attempt to become a two-weight world 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.

Still, Garbrandt kept charging forward and it appeared he clipped Dillashaw with a good punch that he had to believe rattled the bantamweight champion.

"It wasn't anything in sparring", Dillashaw said.

After Saturday night's win in Los Angeles, Dillashaw erased any lingering doubts over which of the pair was the better man, thanks to an even more decisive performance. "And the victor of this next bout, I wanna fight that guy". "And I really don't believe he's got a chin". Moraes is a well-rounded fighter and a former World Series of Fighting champion - I wouldn't be surprised to see him pull out a victory over Dillashaw.
