A bantamweight bout between Cody Garbrandt and Trevin Jones served as the featured prelim of tonight’s UFC 285 event.

Cody Garbrandt, TJ Dillashaw

Garbrandt (13-5 MMA), a former bantamweight champion, had entered the contest with hopes of snapping a two-fight losing skid. ‘No Love’ was coming off a TKO loss to Kai Kara-France in his most previous effort in December of 2021 at UFC 269.

Meanwhile, Trevin Jones (13-10 MMA) was looking to rebound from a three-fight losing skid when he squared off with Cody Garbrandt this evening. ‘5 Star’ was coming off back-to-back decision setbacks to Raoni Barcelos and Javid Basharat in his most previous Octagon appearances.

Tonight’s featured prelim did not result in the thrilling back and forth affair that most fans were hoping for. Trevin Jones landed a total of five significant strikes in the opening two rounds, while Cody Garbrandt was able to land some hard body kicks and two big takedowns. ‘5 Star’ finally found his groove in the third and final round but it proved to be too little too late.
