Last updated

UFC fighter TJ Dillashaw recently appeared on the Real Quick with Mike Swick podcast. Following a two year layoff, the Bantamweight great is ready to return to the octagon. The fighter spoke at length regarding his want to go straight for the UFC Bantamweight Championship.

“There’s been some talks right but nothing can be announced yet” TJ Dillashaw began whilst speaking to Swick. “I’m in a good situation, I think everyone in the top five has called me out, you know? I want to come back and fight the best.”

“I’m 35 years old now, we’ve got a lot of things in life going on so I want to come back and prove that I’m the best Bantamweight of all time” Dillashaw continued. “I want to come back and fight the best. If that’s a fight for a title right away? Then so be it, if that’s fighting someone else in the top five? Awesome.”

TJ Dillashaw finished by addressing the fact that he has told the UFC he’s happy to fight anyone. “I’ve said yes to every person who has called me out. I’ve said yes to UFC [to fight them]. I’m eager to get back in there so it doesn’t really matter, as long as it’s someone that’s at the top of the game, because I’m going to climb up and get that belt back fast, you know?”
