Preview: TJ Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt

The UFC heads back to the Sunshine State and the Staples Center in LA, where a long-awaited rematch at 135 is set to take place between TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt. TJ Dillashaw is champion following the KO finish of Cody in the first meeting last year. After being nearly finished in the second, he came roaring back and scored the knockout, leading to one of the greatest photos in MMA history (see below). It was such a great fight the first time around, and these two are determined to have the belt around their waist when they leave the arena Saturday. Along with just the belt, there is BAD BLOOD between these two (there will be more on that next week as a post-fight thought), and it looks to boil over into the octagon this weekend.

Who's Got Next?

This is a question that has been circulating some (at least our) MMA circles recently. It just does not seem there is a "guy" in the UFC right now, so who is it? Without Conor being active, who is the face of the organization?

Storylines: UFC 225

This Saturday, the UFC once again visits the Windy City for a great night of fights. Between 2 (sorta) belts on the line, a probable title eliminator, among others, there’s a lot to look forward to.
