Former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillshaw fought an incredible fight against Dominick Cruz in the UFC Fight Night 81 main event on Sunday night. Dillashaw lost a razor close split decision against Cruz to lose the title against the guy that never really lost the title. Dillashaw was gracious in defeat and admitted the fight was close, but felt like it was his fault for letting the fight be that close. However, he has since had a chance to watch the fight for himself and believes that UFC commentator Joe Rogan was heavily biased in favor of Dominick Cruz during the fight. Dillashaw took to his Instagram account:
Man I’m so lucky that I get to do what I love everyday of my life and put on shows for the world. Love being a martial artist and the person it has made me. Like me or hate me for what ever reason and think what ever you believe to be true, I just appreciate you watching and hope you enjoyed that fight. Congrats to Cruz for enduring everything he has and being able to come out and perform at his best, true respect for his determination and athletic ability. I know everyone has their right to their own opinion but as I laid in bed the last two nights not able to sleep thinking how I lost that fight baffled me. Not saying that it was a robbery because I knew that it was a close fight and have no one to blame but myself for leaving it that fu#king close. Did not fight my best and definitely things I could have done different laying there thinking to myself. Finally got a chance to watch the fight on my flight home today and after watching I’m even more confident I won that fight! Even the two rounds I was initially giving to him were much closer when I rewatched it, to be fair I gave my self three rounds but have no problem saying I won four rounds. @joerogan might need to go back and watch it again to hear how biased he was commentating, I agree with you it was a good close fight but think you picked Cruz before the fight started. HOLY SHIT WHAT A GOOD FIGHT! Better than I remember and want to do it again. Please Cruz, don’t retire and give me that shot so I can get back what I believe is mine. @ufc
I felt that Rogan was biased a bit as well and he usually is because this is not the first time a fighter has accused Rogan of being biased during his commentary. Do you agree that Rogan is biased with his commentary?
