It's not out of the blue.
Cody Garbrandt may be hoping to battled T.J. Johnson, who broke Anderson Silva's title defense record with the win over Borg, has always said that he'd be up for super fights - as long as he got paid accordingly for them.
Speaking on Monday's episode of The MMA Hour, Dillashaw talked about Garbrandt's post-fight feelings toward him.
Dillashaw doesn't believe OH native Garbrandt deserves an immediate shot at redemption and has told his former team-mate to go on a win streak before campaigning for a rematch. He's fast, powerful. That's going to make you more nervous than you need to be.
Sleep-deprivation similar to being drunk, leads to memory lapses
The scientists say the brain is performing in a sleep-like state while awake which could lead to accidents and low productivity. Previous studies have linked sleep deprivation to a heightened risk of depression, obesity, diabetes, heart attacks and stroke.
"I knew that head kick was eventually going to open up, get him to drop his hands". He's a hell of a fighter, he's young, he's gonna be back, like I'm gonna see him again.
One of the big hurdles for Johnson has been his pay per fight, claiming a high-risk super fight isn't financially lucrative enough to pursue.
And some of the other issues that had been pointed out by Johnson were also addressed by both White and Dillashaw. "Him leaving is one thing". He pounced on his downed opponent and kept peppering him with punches until Dan Miragliotta stepped in to award him the TKO victory at 2:41 of the second stanza. "He doesn't deserve a rematch", Dillashaw said after the fight, according to MMAFighting.com.
If Dillashaw is forced to fight within his division for his next fight, there is a clear No. 1 contender bout on the horizon.
And if that fight doesn't happen. "I think Cruz has his hands full with that fight".
