Heavy Hands

Though it lasted less than two rounds, Cody Garbrandt vs TJ Dillashaw I is already considered one of the most exciting bouts in bantamweight history. Likewise, Demetrious Johnson's destruction of Henry Cejudo is widely regarded as his finest hour--or rather, his finest two minutes and 49 seconds. In the main and co-main events of UFC 227, both matchups will play out for the second time. 

This week on Heavy Hands, Connor and Phil are here with the in-depth technical preview, as well as a look back at some of the results of last weekend's UFC Calgary. Topics include: 

  • How good is Cody Garbrandt, really? Can he adapt to a rematch the way we expect TJ to do?
  • Can Henry Cejudo make his improved striking work against Demetrious Johnson, or will it be death by clinch all over again?
  • From UFC Calgary: the changing style of Dustin Poirier, and the adjustments he made to secure the finish this time around
  • How “back” is Jose Aldo, and how much do we really care? because that shit was incredible
