“That’s kind of crossing the line. He’s put our friendship on blast and put my name out there. He put me and Dominick on blast and looked like a fool. He’s always been a cool guy, but now he’s acting like a 14-year-old school girl wanting to create drama.”
-T.J. Dillashaw reacts to Urijah Faber’s continued comments about him during an appearance on UFC Tonight on Fox Sports 1.
Penick’s Analysis: Of the three, Faber’s come off the worst in this whole bantamweight cluster-mess. Some of the good will he’d built up in the past has taken a hit with the way he’s trashed Dillashaw, especially after he got the shot at UFC 199 that arguably should have gone to his former protege. It’s set up for a future fight should Faber somehow pull off the win over Cruz on June 4, but failing that it could wind up simply a past annoyance for Dillashaw should he move forward beyond that possibility.
