It’s tough being a 135-pound UFC fighter these days. For whatever reason, casual fans aren’t into watching “little guys” bang. Sadly, they’re missing out on some of the best action in MMA.
In the world of the UFC, you can go from zero to hero in the blink of an eye (or vice versa…just ask Ronda Rousey) and Cody Garbrandt knows exactly how that feels.
What the division lacks in knockout power, it makes up for in speed. These guys look like they’re flying around the octagon when they’re going at it. Their conditioning and technique is off the charts - you will never see a slow-paced bantamweight bout. This weight class is an MMA purist’s dream.

Weight Limit: 135 pounds
Average Height: 67.1” (5’7.1”)
Average Reach: 68.8” (5’9.8”)
Former champion Dominick Cruz is the last man to beat Dillashaw, which creates a built-in storyline for a title rematch. But first, “The Dominator” needs to get past No. 3 Jimmie Rivera at UFC 219 on December 30. Expect the UFC odds at BookMaker.eu to open with Cruz as a slight favorite, in the -140 range.
This is definitely not the last we’ve seen of “No Love”, who is just 26 years old. He’ll need a few wins to get back into the mix, but nobody doubts that he’s already one of the best 135 pounders in the business. A matchup with somebody like John Lineker would be a lot of fun.
UFC Bantamweight Champion: T.J. Dillashaw
1. Cody Garbrandt
2. Dominick Cruz
3. Jimmie Rivera
4. Raphael Assuncao
5. John Lineker
6. Bryan Caraway
7. Aljamain Sterling
8. John Dodson
9. Marlon Moraes
10. Thomas Almeida
11. Pedro Munhoz
12. Eddie Wineland
13. Matthew Lopez
14. Rob Font
15. Johnny Eduardo
T.J. Dillashaw not only took the title from Cody Garbrandt, he knocked out his arch-rival with a brutal head kick. This is Dillashaw’s second run as bantamweight champion, as he lost the strap to Dominick Cruz in 2016 after two successful title defenses. Dana White has already thrown out the idea of Dillashaw meeting flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson in a champion vs. champion matchup. We already know Dillashaw would be down, the question is whether “Mighty Mouse” chooses to step out of his comfort zone.

Fighters compete in what is known as the octagon, an engineered fence. Once thought to be a gimmick, the octagonal shape gives structural support. The octagon is 30 feet in diameter and stands 5ft 6in. These are the UFC rules, defined, decided and approved by the Nevada State athletic commission.
