When Urijah Faber insinuated that his former Team Alpha Male teammate, former UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw was on performance-enhancing drugs, it likely ruined any chance of salvaging their past relationship.
Dillashaw spoke about Faber’s shocking comments, where he alluded to the fact that Dillashaw was using PEDs, during a recent appearance on FS1’s “UFC Tonight” program.
“No, man. Actually, that’s kind of crossing the line,” Dillashaw said of Faber’s controversial comments. “He’s already been kind of putting our friendship on blast and putting my name out there. Any time he gets the chance to discredit my name he’s doing it and this is just kind of crossing the line.”
Dillashaw continued, “Just to be able to put himself into the media eyes, to put me and Dominick Cruz on blast, and to really kind of look like a fool. I never would have seen Urijah act like this kind of character. I’ve always seen him as an easygoing, cool dude, but he’s acting like a 14-year-old high school girl wanting to create drama.”
Urijah Faber makes his Octagon return in the co-main event of UFC 199, as he challenges Dominick Cruz in their long-awaited trilogy bout for the UFC Bantamweight Championship.
Headlined by Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping II for the UFC Middleweight Championship, UFC 199 is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2016 from The Forum in Inglewood, California.
