The last season of TUF centered on UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt vs. former champion T.J. Dillashaw. Then Garbrandt suffered a back injury and the fight was delayed. However, that is no reason to delay trash talk.
Dillashaw questioned the extent of Garbrandt’s injuries, based on the antics in the video below.
“It’s just the fact that I’ve seen him drunk and wrestling around with his buddies while his back is supposedly hurt doing rehab. There’s some posts that I got tagged in or got sent to me when I woke up one morning, of him getting all drunk with his buddies and him getting into a full-blown wrestling match on the ground with Danny Castillo. It’s kind of crazy.
“If it was hurting you to walk, and you couldn’t take the title fight, then you should probably be doing some rehab.”
With Garbrandt out, Dillashaw is trying to get a fight with flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. However, Mighty Mouse is insistent that T.J. wait his turn, and that a fight against Ray Borg is more appropriate.
“He does not want to fight me because he’s scared to lose the belt,” charged Dillashaw. “I respect Demetrious Johnson as a person. I like him, I like his wife. But by him acting this way and turning down the fight, he’s really tarnishing his career and reputation in my eyes.”
