Dana White’s In Love With “Mighty Mouse” vs. Dillashaw Scrap

Former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw is set to face reigning champion and former teammate Cody “No Love” Garbrandt this summer. However, it was recently revealed that “No Love” is dealing with a back injury.

While UFC President Dana White is hopeful that the champion will still be able to compete this summer, White does have another fight in mind for Dillashaw. The former champion has shown interest in facing UFC featherweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, if Cody Garbrandt is unavailable.

Now, the UFC president has shown interest in seeing that fight down. As stated by Brett Okamoto over Twitter, “Dana White said he is still hopeful Cody Garbrandt’s back will heal in time to fight T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 213 on July 8.

“If Garbrandt can’t go, White loves the idea of Dillashaw dropping to 125 to fight Demetrious Johnson. That wouldn’t happen on July 8 though. If Garbrandt can’t go and UFC makes DJ vs. TJ, White tells me it’d be in August. Not official, but looking at DJ headlining PPV in Seattle.” Okamoto explained.
