The MMA Vivisection - UFC 227: Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt 2 picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch return to breakdown this week’s UFC card in Los Angeles, CA. With picks and odds for every fight on the card. From TJ Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt & Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo on PPV down to Marlon Vera vs. Wuliji Buren on the opening prelims.

It’s not a ‘stacked’ card by any estimation, but UFC 227 has at least two must see fights and promises a lot of action. TJ Dillashaw rematches Cody Garbrandt for the bantamweight title in the main event, and Demetrious Johnson rematches Henry Cejudo in the co-main. And even if they’re bouts we’ve seen before, they should be great showcases of the highest levels of MMA skill.
