Re-Live T.J. Dillashaw’s Epic UFC 173 Win With Some Inspiration From ‘Lord Of The Rings’

To prepare you for the upcoming clash, here’s a retelling of the first bout with a bit of a fantasy spin:

You can see Dillashaw defend his Bantamweight Championship against Barao in the rematch of their epic first bout Saturday night on UFC on Fox 16, starting at 8 p.m. EST.
