T.J. Dillashaw was rooting for ex-rival Cody Garbrandt at UFC 300

Regardless of their historical past, T.J. Dillashaw hoped Cody Garbrandt would get his hand raised at UFC 300.

Dillashaw thought Garbrandt was able to successful, and went so far as praising his former rival.

“I assumed Garbrandt was going to get the win,” Dillashaw mentioned on the “JAXXON PODCAST.” “I feel he’s the all-around higher athlete. They each have energy – we all know that going into the battle. Figueiredo’s bought energy at ’25s, but it surely’s translated and we’ve seen it at ’35s, as properly. Garbrandt’s bought energy – he’s simply so quick. He’s just like the quickest individual I’ve ever educated with, fought towards – insanely quick. His quick twitch is loopy.

“I assumed that he’d get the win. I hoped he’d get the win, I used to be really rooting for him, even with all of the bullsh*t drama occurring between him and us preventing one another. I used to be rooting for him. I hate to see a fighter lose his confidence as a result of if you lose your confidence, your expertise go downhill. In the event you’re not going to imagine in your self if you get in there, then you definately’re not going to have the ability to do what you are able to do to the fullest.”

Dillashaw knocked out Garbrandt in back-to-back title fights at UFC 217 and UFC 227. The previous bantamweight champion says Garbrandt’s chin has since deteriorated, which made him extra tentative whereas preventing.

“He sadly doesn’t have a chin anymore,” Dillashaw mentioned. “Individuals have seen that. He can get cracked, and he’s gotten knocked out after I beat him. He bought knocked out just a few extra occasions, so everybody was ridiculing him for getting knocked out and for being overly aggressive, not having good protection. Now they wish to hate him for being too defensive.”
