It should be noted that Dominick Cruz never lost his belt. That sort of gives him some bragging rights over TJ Dillashaw. However, that being said – TJ disagrees. The UFC Bantamweight champion was blunt in his assessment of Cruz’s chances against him in his return at UFC Fight Night 81. Cruz will look to get his belt back and TJ will look to shut him down and prove his dominance.
Here is what Dillashaw recently told Fox Sports.
All that s–t he’s been talking, he’s got to back it up. He’s just putting more pressure on himself and when he gets knocked out Jan. 17 he’s going to have to be an announcer for the rest of his life. I think he found his new niche and that’s talking. He does do a good job analyzing and he’s been trying to be Conor McGregor for this fight and hype it up … I’m going to put it on him, I’m going to break him. I’m ready for the five rounds for him ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I have to chase him down a little bit.
Who takes this and proves they are the one true champion at 135?
