A mouse formed under Dillashaw’s eye, but Cody wobbled on his feet from the punches.
TJ wasn’t about to let Cody recover, though. He landed a punch that put Garbrandt back down, then swarmed at him with punches.
Cody worked his way back up to his feet, but Dillashaw landed knees and a flurry of punches, leaving referee Herb Dean no choice but to stop the fight and declare TJ Dillashaw as the champion.
