Team Alpha Male’s TJ Dillashaw has had perhaps one of the quickest and most unexpected rises to greatness in the sport’s history. In just over a year, he has gone from the guy that P4P king Renan Barao was going to eat for lunch to the UFC’s reigning bantamweight champion and a top pound-for-pounder in his own right. On the heels of a vicious shellacking of Barao in their UFC on FOX 16 rematch, there’s really only one challenge left for Dillashaw to face: Women’s Bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey.
Yep, we’re talking man vs. woman fights again, it seems.
Dillashaw recently sat down with our partners at MadeMan for a lengthy interview, dishing on everything from how to get six-pack abs how he would take down a heavyweight in a street fight. Of course, with Ronda Rousey being the talk of the town these days, Dillashaw was eventually asked how he’d see himself fairing in a hypothetical fight against “Rowdy.” His answer was about as good as you could hope for.
It wouldn’t be much of a fight?
Umm… of course. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt. But it’s one of those things where I’m going to be the bad guy no matter what if it happens. You know? I’d be an asshole for knocking her out or I’d be looked down upon for losing. So it’s a lose-lose situation, but yeah, I mean, I definitely see myself winning that fight very, in my mind, easily.
Yeah, but could he do it while sporting an evening gown and six inch heels? These are the kind of questions we should really be devoting numerous articles to, Nation.
