Former UFC and WEC bantamweight champion and MMA’s probable bantamweight G.O.A.T. Dominick Cruz and another former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw had a heated rivalry back in the day. While many have already written off Dillashaw and raised question marks over his ability, his former opponent and rival Cruz believes that when Dillashaw returns he will be even better than he was before.
Cruz recently gave an interview to ESPN. Here’s what he had to say about Dillashaw’s situation:
I actually feel bad for him. The world believes that there is an asterik next to his name, same with Jon Jones. So at this point I think he is gonna come back, two years that’s nothing. I’ve been out longer than that. And he is just gonna get healthy. All that is going to happen is TJ Dillashaw is going to take two years, raise his kids, probably be a good father to his son, his kid which is better to his family. He is going to heal up.
I honestly think when TJ Dillashaw comes back, he is going to be than he was when he left. Because he is gonna be rested and he is going to have time for his family.
