Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw have one of the UFC's most compelling feuds of recent years.The feud persisted even after Dillashaw knocked out Garbrandt and took his bantamweight title belt last year, following months of verbal sparring and prefight scuffling.Any viewer of the pay-per-view show can't miss the clear contrast between Garbrandt, the rural Ohio product with prominent neck tattoos, and Dillashaw, the clean-cut college graduate with a California surfer look. But the rematch primarily is a collision of two fighters with legitimate reason to think they're the best in the 135-pound division.Garbrandt's neck is covered by large wings flanking a diamond, with the words "SELF MADE" atop his sternum.He seemed ticketed for superstardom – until Dillashaw, the former Cal State Fullerton wrestler whose only losses in the last six years were on debatable split decisions, wrecked the narrative with his fists.
