Dillashaw can insert his name into discussion for a bantamweight title-shot by beating Raphael Assuncao next month at UFC Fight Night 29. The 27-year old is currently on a four-fight winning streak with finishing performances in his last three bouts. He was last seen knocking Hugo Viana out in April at UFC on FOX 7.
There are lots of MMA gyms out there but there’s only one Team Alpha Male. Known for producing fighters from smaller weight-classes, the California crew boasts an elite group of competitors including more than one UFC title-contender. Members like T.J. Dillashaw, Chad Mendes, and Joseph Benavidez are more like a family than simply training partners thanks to the leadership of Urijah Faber, and the future is looking brighter than ever thanks to the inclusion of seasoned striker Duane Ludwig on the coaching front.
