Former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw will return to the octagon in July at UFC 200 as he has a rematch weight Raphael Assuncao and this will be his first fight since losing the UFC title to Dominick Cruz at UFC Fight Night 81 in January.
Cruz is set to defend the bantamweight title in two weeks against Dillashaw’s former teammate Urijah Faber and many believe that if Dillashaw defeats Assuncao, he will get the winner of the upcoming title fight.
Since Dillashaw left Team Alpha Male to train full time in Colorado, many things have been said about the split. Recently, Faber implied that Dillashaw has used performance enhancing drugs and Dillashaw responded to those comments on Wednesday night’s episode of “UFC Tonight” on FS1.
“That’s kind of crossing the line. He’s put our friendship on blast and put my name out there,” Dillashaw stated. “He put me and Dominick on blast and looked like a fool. He’s always been a cool guy, but now he’s acting like a 14-year-old school girl wanting to create drama.”
