What, you thought the rivalry was over?
A few weeks after Dominick Cruz returned to the Octagon to reclaim his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Bantamweight title by defeating T.J. Dillashaw at UFC Fight Night 81 (video replay here), "The Viper" is still heated with how everything went down.
That's why he took to Instagram to blast Cruz for his
running fighting style, saying that all he'll need for the rematch is a good pair of sneakers and pillows, and obvious blow to what he perceives as lack of punching power on the part of Cruz.
His post (via Fox Sports):
Only equipment needed for the rematch against Cruz. Next training camp is going to be strictly running marathons and pillow fighting. Cause that little bitch doesn't want to fight he wants to run and throw his pillows around that he calls fists! @danawhiteufc @ufc Give me the rematch to get back what is rightfully mine and should have never lost. No more being respectful or nice cause that doesn't seem to get you S#%T anymore.
There's no guarantee T.J. will get an instant do-over against "The Dominator," as Urijah Faber is currently on the campaign trail to get his trilogy bout against Cruz.
Of course, UFC matchmakers could make it easier and have Faber and Dillashaw mix it up inside the Octagon to see who deserves the right to vie for the 135-pound strap next.
After all, the beef between the former teammates is already built in.
