Dillashaw recently appeared on UFC Tonight and expressed his frustration while addressing the comments made by Faber:
“That’s kind of crossing the line. He’s already been kind of putting our friendship on blast and putting my name out there. Any time he gets the chance to discredit my name he’s doing it and this is just kind of crossing the line. Just to be able to put himself into the media eyes, to put me and Dominick Cruz on blast, and to really kind of look like a fool. I never would have seen Urijah act like this kind of character. I’ve always seen him as an easygoing, cool dude, but he’s acting like a 14-year-old high school girl wanting to create drama.”
There you have it, two adults comparing each other to teenagers.
T.J. will have to sit out and wait for his chance at redemption. He will be watching closely as Faber and Cruz face off at UFC 199, but he did say that he will be ready to step in if one of the fighters were to pull out. Dillashaw is currently scheduled to fight Raphael Assuncao at UFC 200 in July.
