Garbrandt (11-2, 6-2 UFC) is on two fights losing skid after his two straight losses to the current champion T.J. Dillashaw. His second bout was in August, of 2017 but was stopped in the first round by T.J. whereas Munhoz (17-3, 1 NC, 7-2, 1 NC UFC) has won two fights in a row since John Dodson 's split decision loss in March and his most recent win came via TKO over Bryan Caraway. So, this fight could be a redemption match for the former champion or a career-defining point for Munhoz who is ranked no#9th, to register a win against no.1 Bantamweight contender Cody Garbrandt.
UFC 235 has already announced two big title fights for the Vegas event as Tyron Woodley vs. Kamaru Usman would headline the main event with Welterweight strap on the line, and Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith for LHW will be the T-mobile Arina's co-main event, hence a No-Love fight would be the cherry on the cake.
