Video: TJ Dillashaw explains split from Team Alpha Male prior to UFC Fight Night 81

New, comments

Before Conor McGregor outed T.J. Dillashaw as a "snake in the grass," the current UFC Bantamweight champion was a fixture among the prominent mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters training out of the Team Alpha Male (TAM) gym in Sacramento, California.

That was not meant to last, partly because of Dillashaw's insistence on commuting back-and-forth between former TAM coach Duane Ludwig's facility in Colorado and "Golden State," with the former was subsequently deemed the enemy by "The California Kid."

Some combatants might still be a little buddy-buddy with Dillashaw, but he seems to know what's really the motivation behind Faber's remarks.
