Following UFC 177, UFC President Dana White and UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw have one thing in common and that is they are tired of answering questions about who is the next challenger for T.J. Dillashaw.
“For now, it’s behind me. I just had to beat Joe Soto, said “For now, it’s behind me. I just had to beat Joe Soto. I had to switch my mind up in one day.” “I had to switch my mind up in one day.”
“I hate those questions of ‘Who do you want to fight next?’ I don’t know, man. I’ve just been thinking about one person for the last 10 weeks, and then I had to switch it up last night. Those are the questions I hate the most. I’d rather just have some fun tonight, hang out, and we’ll figure it out later.”
“I’ll leave it in the hands of the UFC and Dana. I’m here to be a company man, be the champion, and do what I need to do. I’ll be in there training (Chad) Mendes for (Jose) Aldo. I’m going to be in the gym; it’s not like I’m not going to be training, just letting my body rest a bit. I’m ready whenever.”
T.J. Dillashaw beat Joe Soto in the main event of UFC 177 after his original opponent was pulled out of the fight just a few hours prior to their weigh inns.
UFC President Dana White added this just to make the message clear that he does not like this question:
“I hate those questions, too, by the way.”
