Dominick Cruz Trashes “Stupid Moron” TJ Dillashaw For Refusing To Accept A 125-Pound Title Match Loss To Henry Cejudo
TJ Dillashaw’s attempt to drop down to 125-pound and become a UFC’s two division champion didn’t gone well. Reigning flyweight kingpin Henry Cejudo knockout Dillashaw in the main headliner of UFC on ESPN+ 1 in just 32 seconds of the very first round.
The end result was disastrous as TJ Dillashaw claimed the fight was stolen and blamed the referee Kevin MacDonald for an unfair stoppage. Even UFC head honcho Dana White also sides Dillashaw in his decision.
Dillashaw really went too far when he said he’d defeat Henry Cejudo “99 out of 100 times” in Ariel Helwani’s MMA show. “Viper” later called Cejudo’s victory “a fluke”, but Henry offered an epic response.

“I look at this and say, is this how insignificantly stupid you are?” Cruz told UFC Unfiltered (via MMA Fighting). “To think you complaining and whining about a stoppage is gonna change anything? You just sound like a moron. Like, nothing is gonna change. You might as well just accept what just happened to you and try to grab a hold of your balls instead of run from them and admit the loss. Because you just got knocked out by a [125er]. And you dropped down to a weight class that dried out your brain and you might not have been as durable as you are at 135.”
Dominick Cruz continued attacking TJ Dillashaw, advising him to move on.
“It’s a sad display for me for the 135-pound division,” Cruz said. “It just showed what a weak-minded champion we have, in my personal opinion, to not admit defeat when it happens and just make a bunch of sorry excuses. He should just take it and move on, because he’s still got the belt. He’s still going to fight. He’s gonna get another shot. He’s not injured, he’s not hurt. So it’s like, what kind of example are you leaving for yourself and everybody else just crying and whining about nothing that can be changed?”
