It is possible for Cody Garbrandt’s 1st title defense to be against his former Team Alpha Male teammate TJ Dillashaw. Garbrandt claims that he actually knocked Dillashaw out while they were sparring once in practice.
Dillashaw was first of all asked by mmafighting.com about his thoughts on Garbrandt and this was Dillashaw’s reply:
“He’s always been good, he’s fast, he hits hard. I think he’s kinda a little one dimensional. He’s a good fighter, he’s got good wrestling, but if you watch his style, all he’s really got, he bum rushes you with hooks. Kinda like the Wanderlei [Silva] style, WanderleiSHARE:OROR
