Ever since it became clear that former Team Alpha Male teammates Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw have been on a collision course, “No Love” has boasted that there exists footage of him knocking Dillashaw out during their time as sparring partners.
On Thursday, the UFC bantamweight champion finally posted footage of what Garbrandt alleges to be that KO on his Instagram page:
This guy is a liar he said I never koed him, that there is no video! Also that he has never took PEDs and he never cheap shotted a former teammate stealing his dream from under him! Fuck you @tjdillashaw hey @danawhite get that Knockout Bonus Check, I’m ready to collect it!! #ISpeakFacts
It’s worth noting that the clip is only six seconds long, it is impossible to clearly identify the fighters involved, nor is it certain that the fighter who is struck is actually knocked out. However, according to Garbrandt’s post, this is the infamous footage that he has been teasing.
Garbrandt also responded to a fan on Twitter who commented on the clip:
Lmao he couldn’t even walk after that strike hit him I would of pounded his skull in.

The two bantamweight rivals will get the chance to settle their beef on Saturday when Garbrandt defends his title against Dillashaw in the co-main event of UFC 217 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, N.Y.
