Dillashaw Offers Cruz 100K Bet

TJ Dillashaw after UFC 177 victory

UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has two options for his next title defense. He could rematch T.J. Dillashaw, who he took the title from via split decision on January 17, 2016, at UFC Fight Night 81. Dillashaw rebounded with a unanimous decision over Raphael Assunção at UFC 200 on July 9.

Or Cruz could defend against Cody Garbrandt, who is 10-0 and holds three straight KOs.

Dillashaw recent took a novel approach to building interest in his title challenge – he offered the champion a $100,000 bet.

“Yo what’s up guys,” he began. “First things first I need to congratulate Dominick Cruz for making the comeback he did. But it’s time to put your money where your mouth is, tired of all the drama no more campaigning or talking s*** to get this title fight rematch. I’m willing to bet 100k that I beat you in a rematch, you win I fight for free you lose you match my bet. Time to put up or shut up!

“I believe I’m the better fighter and just want to prove it. Where you at, don’t be scared homie. This is as real as it gets! You Talking about money fights, look no more here it is! I obviously believe in myself, do you?”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
