Heading into their anticipated bantamweight title fight in the co-main event of this weekend’s (Sat., Nov. 4, 2017) UFC 217 from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, champion Cody Garbrandt has made things personal with former champion TJ Dillashaw.
First, he accused “The Viper” of teaching Team Alpha Male to use performance-enhancing drugs at today’s UFC 217 pre-fight press conference, and now, he’s posted video of the alleged training knockout he nailed Dillashaw with when they were teammates, something he’s boasted of since the two were opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 25 earlier this year.
Check out the footage from Garbrandt’s Instagram and see for yourself:

This guy is a liar he said I never koed him, that there is no video! Also that he has never took PEDs and he never cheap shotted a former teammate stealing his dream from under him! Fuck you @tjdillashaw hey @danawhite get that Knockout Bonus Check, I'm ready to collect it!! #ISpeakFacts
It’ difficult to say that “No Love” actually knocked out Dillashaw here, because while he most certainly did get knocked down by a huge shot, he also appeared to get right back up and continue sparring.
In any case, Garbrandt will have his chance to win the knockout bonus he predicted in the post above. Based on the short clip, do you believe “No Love” will fulfill his promise?
