TJ Dillashaw is set to defend the bantamweight title against Dominick Cruz on January 17th, and in advance of the fight, the UFC’s posted his most memorable win to date.
That victory took place in May, 2014, when Dillashaw became the first man in nearly ten years to defeat Renan Barao. At the time, Barao was riding a 33 fight, undefeated streak, and was widely considered to be one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.
Some folks believed Dillashaw would give Barao a good run for his money, but not many were predicting he’d end the champ’s reign.
