Once teammates, Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw soon became fierce rivals, with Dillashaw twice getting the better of Cody in UFC men’s bantamweight title fights.

It looks like the next person across from him in the Octagon will be Jorge Masvidal, which Leon Edwards is not a fan of. After all, Edwards wanted some revenge on Masvidal for his ‘three-piece and a soda’ in front of the media in London.

In the UFC Philadelphia main event, the promotion’s #8 ranked lightweight Justin Gaethje rocked the #6 ranked Edson Barboza early on, and then proceeded to knock him out with a single right hand at the midpoint of the opening round. Gaethje has now knocked out all three of his UFC victims, and has still yet to see some scorecards within the promotion. What will be next for ever-exciting and heavy handed Gaethje?

Colby Covington thinks Ben Askren owes Robbie Lawler a rematch after their highly controversial bout UFC 235.

Askren was dropped, badly hurt, and almost finished in the opening seconds of the first round, but the former ONE FC and Bellator welterweight champion mounted a crazy comeback and ended up submitting Lawler with a bulldog choke.
