Former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw may have to wait to get his hands on budding rival Cody Garbrandt. According to a social media post by Garbrandt earlier today (Fri., May 12, 2017), which was later removed, he’s going to have his second back surgery in just under three months

Flying to Germany tomorrow for my second back procedure in less than 3 months, rest easy @TJDillashaw your time will come.

I tore my back over two months ago and did stem cells that didn’t heal my back as I was told, now off to Germany for another procedure!

Garbrandt, 25, captured the UFC bantamweight title at UFC 207 back in December after handily defeating Dominick Cruz via decision. He is scheduled to defend the belt for the first time opposite Dillashaw at UFC 213 on July 8 in Las Vegas, which falls in the promotion’s International Fight Week schedule.

While no official announcement has been made regarding the upcoming title fight, a second procedure for “No Love” could put him on the shelf longer than expected and put his bout with Dillashaw in serious jeopardy.
