T.J. Dillashaw and the Biggest Title Fight Upsets in Recent Memory
USA TODAY Sports

In a sport of upsets, Team Alpha Male stalwart T.J. Dillashaw secured his place in MMA upset history at UFC 173 on Saturday at the MGM's Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Over seven years removed from Matt Serra's upset win over George St-Pierre at UFC 69, Dillashaw seized his moment and TKO'd former longtime champ Renan Barao to score a monumental upset victory.

Dillashaw overcame overwhelming odds to defeat Barao, who hadn't tasted defeat in 33 fights heading into the bout.

The win puts Dillashaw in an elite category of MMA fighters who pulled off remarkable upsets in recent memory.

Here's a short list (which won't include any classic shockers like Serra over St-Pierre or Maurice Smith over Mark Coleman) of some of the most memorable recent title-fight upsets.
