Cody Garbrandt (11-1) will get an immediate bantamweight title rematch against T.J. Dillashaw (15-3) this summer at UFC 227 in Los Angeles on August 4. ESPN first reported the bout.

The Ohio native now lives in California, as he is a member of Team Alpha Male in Sacramento. “No Love” recently welcomed his first child earlier this year as well.

Garbrandt suffered his first pro loss against Dillashaw, as he lost via second round knockout at UFC 217 in November. The win made Dillashaw a two-time champion, as he had waited two years for another crack at the title after losing it to Dominick Cruz.

Garbrandt claimed the title with a dominant decision victory over Cruz at UFC 207 in December 2016.

Garbrandt has nine career wins via knockout and holds a 6-1 UFC record. Dillashaw has seven career wins via knockout and holds an 11-3 record inside the Octagon.
