It was an impressive ascension for Cody Garbrandt, with the bantamweight speed demon taking the top slot after utterly dismantling temporary king Dominick Cruz.
And man of man was that a dismantling. If you’ll recall, Garbrandt was literally dodging Cruz’s punches and pausing to dance.
It’s been almost a year since that performance, and only at UFC 217 this weekend will we get to see Garbrandt in action again, this time against TJ Dillashaw. It should be a fun, frenetic fight, and given that Dillashaw once held the title himself, this scrap is going to be hella competitive.
Here’s a Countdown vid to get you interested in the match-up.
