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.
Aljo is a beast

EPO appears to have weakened TJ structurally. Don’t care. Did it to himself.

Give it up to Dillashaw for stepping in the octagon with that shoulder.
But not taking anything from Aljarmin performance, he would’ve win eitherway.
