It’s a type of fights that I used to be so a lot better going into that struggle — don’t take something away from him [though].
“I believe he’s a tremendous athlete for successful an Olympic gold medal,” Dillashaw continued. “I give him extra credit score for being an Olympic gold medalist than I do successful a UFC championship and that’s one thing as a result of I’ve wrestled my complete life, that’s fairly superb. However I’m a lot of a greater fighter than him — well-rounded smart.”
Not solely does TJ Dillashaw assume Henry Cejudo isn’t as god as he thinks, however he says Triple C bought fortunate in his profession.
“The way in which that his (Cejudo’s) profession labored out and the way in which that he stepped away from it was identical to, he bought so fortunate,” Dillashaw stated. “In order that’s a struggle that I need again as a result of I don’t assume he’s nearly as good as he thinks he’s, in order that’s for positive on my hit checklist. At the start, (the) hit checklist for me, is simply getting my belt again. No matter path I’ve to take to get there, if it’s preventing all the blokes within the top-five first, if it’s going straight to the belt, after which ensuring I defend it and make an announcement.“
