WATCH: Joseph Duffy, Paul Redmond and others predict the outcome of Dillashaw v Barao II

A lot of love for TJ

Darragh Murphy

When TJ Dillashaw put on a show for the ages at UFC 173, many had pegged it as the biggest upset in UFC history.

The Team Alpha Male fighter was as high as a 7/1 underdog going into that fight yet he beat the long-time champion Renan Barao over five rounds and left the MGM with bantamweight gold around his waist.

Now with the rematch only a matter of days away, the oddsmakers see the bout differently with Dillashaw a 2/5 favourite over the Brazilian.

And fighters seem to echo that belief with most professionals giving the Californian the advantage.

Kammakaze TV asked a number of fighters from the UFC Glasgow card to predict the rematch and, apart from Ross Pearson and Thales Leites, it’s a clean sweep for Dillashaw with Irishmen Joseph Duffy and Paul Redmond giving their backing to the Team Alpha Male fighter.
