Team Alpha Male is one of the best camps in MMA right now. With fighters like Urijah Faber, Chad Mendes and Joseph Benavidez, the team is very talented, and their recent addition of striking coach Duane Ludwig has made a world of difference.
One of the most promising stars coming out of that camp is T.J. Dillashaw. Dillashaw ended up losing to John Dodson at the Ultimate Fighter season 14 finale, but he’s certainly turned some heads since that loss. He has power in his hands, and his wrestling is some of the best in the bantamweight division. He faces a stern test on Wednesday in Mike Easton, but Dillashaw is not short on confidence.
He’s training with some of the best guys in the world, and he believes he’s better than Easton in every aspect of MMA. Confidence is one of the most important tools to have in the sport of mixed martial arts. It takes a mentally strong person to get back to the grind, especially after a loss. It seems like Dillashaw has taken the rights steps leading up to this fight.
Dillashaw will come into this fight motivated as he will be trying to erase the memory his most recent loss, which was a controversial decision to Raphael Assuncao.
Easton will put up a fight at first, but he won’t be able to deal with Dillashaw’s hand speed nor his ability to dominate on the ground. Dillashaw will time his shots, and he will hurt Easton with a huge hook. From there, he will finish the fight with strikes on the ground, cementing his status as an elite bantamweight.
