TJ Dillashaw knows deep down inside that he should be fighting Dominick Cruz at UFC 207 instead of John Lineker.
As the former bantamweight champion, Dillashaw is still ranked No. 1 in the division after losing a very close, controversial decision to Cruz back in January. Since then, Dillashaw won a lopsided fight against another top five opponent in Raphael Assuncao at UFC 200.
Still, Dillashaw got shut out of the title hunt when the UFC opted to give the next shot to his former teammate Cody Garbrandt, who meets Cruz on Friday night in Las Vegas.
When the UFC then offered him Lineker as an alternative, Dillashaw didn’t whine or moan about the matchup but instead quickly accepted the fight because he knew competing on the same card as Cruz and Garbrandt would give him a very unique opportunity.
Rather than ranting and raving about how he should be the No. 1 contender, Dillashaw will send the UFC a statement by beating Lineker in such one-sided fashion that there’s no way they can ignore him any longer.
“It was easy to accept. I’m not going to sit on the sidelines, I’m not going to be a little (expletive) about this. I’ve got to make money, I’ve got to feed my family, this is my job, this is the only way I make my money,”
