The talk in the bantamweight division this week has been about Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber, but former champ T.J. Dillashaw wants his rematch with Cruz. Taking to Instagram on Friday, Dillashaw called out Cruz over the way their fight played out, and decided to drop any pretense of respect in hopes of goading his way into that fight.
Only equipment needed for the rematch against Cruz. Next training camp is going to be strictly running marathons and pillow fighting. Cause that little bitch doesn’t want to fight he wants to run and throw his pillows around that he calls fists! @danawhiteufc @ufc Give me the rematch to get back what is rightfully mine and should have never lost. No more being respectful or nice cause that doesn’t seem to get you S#%T anymore.
Penick’s Analysis: Dillashaw’s got the strongest case for the rematch because there’s a real argument for him having won that fight with Cruz. Unfortunately for him, things seem to be moving in the direction of Cruz-Faber, and it seems likely that’s the fight the UFC is going to put together. It’s all hung up so long as there’s no clear return date for Cruz, but Dillashaw’s probably going to find himself on the wrong side of this one.
