This interview is better than whatever Henry Cejudo was trying to do the other day. The face of Joseph Benavidez says it all. TJ Dillashaw and anything involving Team Alpha Male still mix like oil and water.
No, TJ Dillashaw and Team Alpha Male mix like Team Alpha Male and wearing shirts in public places. Cats are chasing dogs, rain is falling up and every member of Team Alpha Male is walking around with their shirts on; these are the sure signs of the End of Days.
In a new interview with Canada’s TSN, is Benavidez causally asked about his friendship with Dillashaw. Both Benavidez and Dillashaw fight on the main card of UFC on ESPN +1 or UFC-ESPN Fight Night Brooklyn or some other name we’re not aware of yet.
Both Benavidez and Dillashaw grew up in the Team Alpha Male farm system. Both are former amateur wrestlers. Before TJ broke away from Team Alpha Male, these two had to be friends right? They have too much in common and used to fight in the same weight class.
It’s been many years since Dillashaw moved from California to Colorado and ditched Team Alpha Male to branch out on his own. But this cut this feels fresh. There’s still blood pouring through the bandage.
Bring up the name TJ Dillashaw in front of Joseph Benavidez and this is the look you get.
A picture is worth a 1,000 words but how about Joe B. awkwardly answering questions about his former friendship? Can’t look away. It feels like we shouldn’t be watching any of this and that’s what makes it so good.
