While Dominick Cruz holds a win over former bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw, Dillashaw has continued to blast the bantamweight kingpin.

Following Dillashaw’s UFC 200 win over Raphael Assuncao, the former champ took to Instagram with a lengthy message directed at Dominick Cruz. The message ended with “Stop running, let’s get this on paper”.

This week, Cruz fired back in an interview with Fox Sports:

“I woke up (Thursday) morning and had no idea,”

“I wouldn’t have watched TJ Dillashaw’s fight if I wasn’t commentating. And I think a lot of people would agree with me that if it wasn’t tagged to UFC 200, they wouldn’t have watched it either. The bottom line is, I don’t really care what these guys think. TJ Dillashaw called me out, what else is new?”

“The truth is, TJ Dillashaw calling me the p-word, doesn’t make sense to me. If fact, he’s insulting himself, which is so stupid to me, because I already beat him … so if I’m a p-word, what does that make him after I beat him after three years off the couch?

“So literally the guy is just insulting himself. The guy is not intelligent — that’s why I call him silly Billy — he’s a meathead, and the bottom line is I don’t run from anybody.”
