TJ Dillashaw Vows To Defend Both Belts After Beating Demetrious Johnson for His Legacy

Recommended Posts

xTJ-Dillashaw.png.pagespeed.ic.Fyf6MFD8z

 

Demetrious Johnson fighting TJ Dillashaw could be the biggest fight in 2018 and while Johnson has been quiet about the match-up, UFC bantamweight champ Dillashaw will not let it the idea of it fade away. He’s been training for it already for months now and is determined to take everything the ‘Mighty’ flyweight belt holder has earned throughout his record-breaking career. Now he’s gone on record saying if he beats Johnson, he’ll defend both the titles, throwing a little shade at ‘Champ Champ’ Conor McGregor.

 

“This is a way to put a stamp on my legacy. I was a little hurt losing that split decision [to Dominick Cruz] and not being on a 13-fight win streak and being called the pound-for-pound best in the world. In my mind, I should be No. 1. So it comes down to beating Demetrious Johnson to prove I’m the best, and it’s a huge thing for my legacy to be the double champ in two weight classes. I’m not a Conor McGregor. I’m going to be active defending my belts. I’m not afraid to fight.”

 

They always talk about Demetrious Johnson and what record he’s about to break. They always talk about Demetrious Johnson and the win streak he’s on or Demetrious Johnson being No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. But they’re never talking about Demetrious Johnson and who he’s fighting, Now he has a chance to lose, and that’s a scary thing for him. I am that person. I’m that person that’s going to bring that threat. You’re going to be glued to the TV because for once you don’t know what’s going to happen. I want to prove a point. He insulted me saying I couldn’t make the weight, that I wasn’t worthy of a 125-pound title shot and he knows that I was.” — TJ Dillashaw speaking to FloCombat.

I think DJ/TJ fight answers too many questions to be ignored both for TJ and DJ and p4p ranking.

 

 

well yeah obv, but DJ doesnt want to take this fight under any circumstances....it means he possibly loses out on his title fight earnings and back to 20k show which he is overpaid for IMO.

This fight needs to happen. TJ is drumming up the fight and that's a good thing. For once it is justified to talk your way into a title fight (and I mean the fact that DJ doesn't want to accept the fight).

There's no chance that TJ can defend both titles in a timely manner. He just said it will take him 4 months to make weight and that's if he can make weight at all.

Realistically for MFW TJ only needs to defend once per year since there really arent any legit contenders there(last one was Cejudo at best). Stop protecting Demetrius Johnson.

I agree.

 

Also, I would add the fact that I believe the UFC does not want a guy with 2 belts.

Why wouldnt they want TJ to have the MFW belt? That division is terrible and loses them money.

I dont think it loses them money, m8.

 

Divisions like FLY and all WMMA are needed to 'fill cards' imo. 

 

I think we wont see any of those ^ headlining any PPV card from now on

For as much I would like to see that, TJ is forgetting that he got his work cut out for him at BW and its not time to talk about fights in other divisions FFS.

 

TJ needs to remember he got Cruz, a very likely rematch with Cody and possible challengers on Moraes and Rivera. If you figure 3 fights this year (best case scenario) he still got like almost 2 years to work on BW division

Benavidez is 11-2 in the ufc and has won 6 straight.

 

TJ defends in each division once a year at best if he's taking 4 months to cut weight.

 

Don't talk to me about protecting someone until you admit that McCuck is ducking. MM has defended 3 times since Canor won the title.

The only superfight Dillashaw deserves is Holloway, if he wants it.

 

That midget can shut up and defend his title.

MM already has the most title defenses in the UFC so even if TJ wins he still hasn't broken MM's legacy.

 

You can't break the man with the most defenses with NO defenses.

They dont count as a title defense if half the arena leaves when that fight comes on

 

So ducky mouse has maybe 3 defenses

When has it been a requirement to fight someone in a higher weight class?

 

It isnt, when TJ makes 125 they are at the same weight class....

 

Stop protecting Demetrius Johnson.

TJ is going to get a nasty shock I think. Just because some of mighty mouse's opponents have been a bit flaky doesn't take away from the fact that he's also beaten all-comers quite comfortably. TJ might hold his own for a couple of rounds but will get overwhelmed in the 3rd.

 

Then maybe, just maybe, we'll start to appreciate how good dj really is.

Not protecting him at all, he's a big boy, it's just that much of the stuff people say about it doesn't make any sense.

 

I'm the evil genie in a bottle. Just rub the lamp, say something stupid, and I'll be there.

They will never appreciate DJ no matter what he does. This is just how America is.

Do you see how much hate he gets, and he's actually one of the few fighters that's not a ****head.

I hope TJ has to defend at LW before DJ is ready to return cause theres every chance TJ will lose the title & everyone will realise hes as dumb as Joanna talking herself up as a goat, he probably wont tap to strikes though to be fair to him.

He's a winey bish,which is even worse. He complains about the money he makes then gets offered the biggest fight of his career by far and ducks it to fight Ray fooking Borg because he was too afraid of putting the title defense record on the line against a real challenger.

He said that he would take the fight for the right money. The didn't give him a better offer. People praise Canor for doing the same but then **** if someone else tries it.

How many title defences does tj have against different opponents?

 

Maybe he should focus on the BW belt first.

I'm still surprised MM hasn't counter-offered to go up to BW and fight for TJ's belt.  Why should the longest running, well-established champion be the one that has to put everything on the line when TJ risks nothing?  It's farcical.

That's his choice to take that stance because it's his *** on the line. If that's what he wants to do with his career, it's his life. If he complains about money, that's his problem not yours. You act like his life is a Sims game.

 

Who in the UFC isn't whiney? They're all whiney these days because of McGregor.

The fans want to see DJ lose the belt, not TJ.

 

Even though DJ fits the criteria of what a good UFC champion SHOULD be, this IS America you know, so...

Yep, can't forget that instant classic of TJ Dillashaw vs. Joe Soto.

 

Who sucks more...Joe Soto or Ray Borg? lol

 

Also remember that was a short notice fight that Soto got vs DJ cherry picking one of the worst fighters in the UFC for a title shot....
