Cejudo's 48-47, 47-48, 48-47 win over Johnson not only made him only the second man in history to hold the UFC flyweight title, it also meant he became the first athlete to hold an Olympic gold medal and a UFC world title.
Garbrandt hit Dillashaw with a wide right hand that would close Dillashaw's right eye. Dillashaw didn't give him the chance and landed another combination that sent Garbrandt staggering to the cage.
Where's the best place to watch UFC fights in Oakland? A flurry of punches, along with a concussive knee, persuaded referee Herb Dean to wave off the fight.
"I am the best bantamweight of all time". Dillashaw took his back and rained down some ground-and-pound, but Garbrandt managed to get back up even though he was clearly on auto-pilot at that point.
After his historic flyweight title win, Cejudo said he wanted a crack at the bantamweight title next, and a shot at the night's main event victor.

Cejudo, 31, a native of Los Angeles, took home the decision on judges' scores of 48-47 (twice), which was the same score the third judge had in favor of Johnson.
In the co-main event, Demetrious Johnson (27-2-1) puts his flyweight belt on the line - he remains the only flyweight champion in UFC history (fairly new division) - against No. 1 contender Henry Cejudo (12-2). If anyone deserves an immediate rematch, it's Johnson, who suffered his first loss in seven years.
After the very competitive and exciting fight, it was announced that Cejudo had ended Johnson's historic reign via split decision. For the champion, a rematch against former bantamweight king Dominick Cruz seems to be on the horizon. With Dillashaw winning back-to-back fights in spectacular fashion, Garbrandt has a lot of work to do if he wants to receive another title shot.
"I most definitely did [shock the world]", Cejudo said. "I was born right here in Los Angeles, in a two-bedroom apartment". Johnson knocked out Cejudo in the first round of their first meeting in 2016, but Cejudo showed off everything he had learned in the interim.
Not only did Cejudo shake off the pain of his lower left leg, he relied on his size and grappling ability to begin to build a case on the scorecards in Round 2 by turning a relatively uneventful round in his favor late by pushing the pace and taking Johnson down before using his weight to lay all over him until the horn.
