UFC 227: Henry Cejudo Ends Demetrious Johnson's Historic Reign

TJ Dillashaw took care of business in short order Saturday night, knocking out mortal enemy Cody Garbrandt for a second time. and retaining his bantamweight title. Dillashaw went in for the finish but didn't get it, but Garbrandt's legs weren't completely under him, and with another shot to get Garbrandt out of there, he didn't waste the second opportunity.

Johnson was the only man in UFC history to hold the undisputed UFC flyweight title, and in his last fight surpassed Anderson Silva to become the man with the most title defences in UFC history with his 11th successful defence.

Dillashaw and Garbrandt trained together in Sacramento until 2014, when Dillashaw left in a messy breakup with the Team Alpha Male gym.

With the win, Dillashaw moves to 17-3.

Two years after losing to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson via first-round TKO, Henry Cejudo was set on showing the world just how much he had improved.

China and ASEAN have held talks for years to try to ease tensions and prevent the disputes from degenerating into open conflicts. Singapore's prime minister said the deal would create the world's largest trading bloc, spanning a third of the global economy.

The rematch was a different kind of contest entirely as Cejudo, an Olympic gold medallist in freestyle wrestling, rallied from an early ankle injury to repeatedly disrupt the rhythm of "Mighty Mouse" with takedowns in the first of two title fights in Los Angeles.

"I think he has some technical problems that he needs to fix", Dillashaw said at UFC 227's post-fight press conference (transcript courtesy of MMAFighting).
