Aljamain Sterling is still the UFC bantamweight champion. In an unfortunate turn of events, challenger TJ Dillashaw suffered a dislocated injury early into the first round, which led to a one-sided beatdown for the ‘Funkmaster’ until a TKO victory in the second round. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the match.

EPO appears to have weakened TJ structurally. Don't care. Did it to himself.— Chris Curtis The Action Man (@Actionman513) October 22, 2022

Give it up to Dillashaw for stepping in the octagon with that shoulder.— Francis Ngannou (@francis_ngannou) October 22, 2022
But not taking anything from Aljarmin performance, he would've win eitherway.
