TJ Dillashaw is going to get a shot at bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt, but he’ll have to coach opposite of his former teammate for a season of “The Ultimate Fighter” first.

Recently the promotion announced that the bantamweights will coach TUF 25, which will feature welterweight competitors, who have competed on TUF before. The announcement also says that one cast member is currently on the UFC roster. The season is set to begin airing on April 19th.

Although the announcement didn’t include a specific date for Garbrandt – Dillashaw, it did report that the latter will meet “No Love” in the Octagon after the season concludes.

Garbrandt won the 135 title last month by decisioning Dominick Cruz at UFC 207. Dillashaw fought that same night and the former champ earned a UD win over John Lineker.

So, there you have it. Garbrandt campaigned for bouts with the likes of Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor, but it’s not surprising to see that Dillashaw didn’t get passed over again.
