The Ultimate Fighting Championship is gearing up for an exciting pay-per-view on Aug. 4, with UFC 227: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt 2 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The main event features a bantamweight title fight between current champion TJ Dillashaw and his arch-rival Cody Garbrandt, the former 135-pound title holder.
