The grudge match between former teammates Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw is expected to go down at November’s UFC 217 event in New York.

“No Love” took to Twitter posting the following about his upcoming title defense.

Garbrandt was last seen in action at December’s UFC 207 event where he dethroned Dominick Cruz via a lopsided unanimous decision victory to claim the UFC’s coveted bantamweight championship.

Meanwhile, former bantamweight title holder TJ Dillashaw has strung together two impressive victories, his latest being a drubbing of surging division contender John Lineker.

UFC 217 is headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Michael Bisping and former welterweight title holder Georges St-Pierre.
