UFC 227: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt 2 is an upcoming MMA event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on August 4, 2018, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
A UFC Bantamweight Championship rematch between current two-time champion T.J. Dillashaw and former champion Cody Garbrandt is expected to headline the event.They both coached on TUF 25 before the two previously met at UFC 217 in the co-main event. When they fought, Dillashaw won with a second round knockout to claim back the title.
A UFC Flyweight Championship rematch between current champion Demetrious Johnson and 2008 Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling Henry Cejudo is also expected to co-headline the event. The pairing previously met at UFC 197, where Johnson defeated Cejudo by first round TKO to defend his title.
Derek Brunson was expected to face The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 heavyweight winner Antônio Carlos Júnior at the event. However, Brunson pulled out of the fight in early July citing an eye injury. Promotion officials have not announced whether or not Carlos Júnior would remain on the card against a replacement, or be rescheduled for a future event.
