Garbrandt: ‘I still stand behind everything I said about Dillashaw’

UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt suffered a title ending loss to heated rival and former teammate T.J. Dillashaw at Saturday’s UFC 217. Dillashaw used to be a member of the highly acclaimed Team Alpha Male training camp. However, the fighter departed from the gym shortly after achieving his previous bantamweight title. Now Dillashaw and “No Love” are heated rivals.

Speaking at the UFC 217 post-fight press conference, Garbrandt said:

“He had a lot of sh*t he was carrying on, with all of the drama. And I stand behind everything I said. He’s still not a good person, but I respect him as a fighter. And that’s that.”

Continuing his thoughts, Garbrandt added:

“I stand behind everything that I said about T.J., but I give him respect for going out there and capitalizing on a mistake. But I truly am the better fighter, and I want that rematch. I’m willing to put in the work and do whatever it takes to get the title back because it was something I was born to do.”
