TJ Dillashaw shares pictures to prove he can cut to 125 pounds “without question”

Though nothing is official just yet, UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw is campaigning hard for a flyweight title shot opposite seemingly unstoppable divisional champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.

Before Dillashaw faces the monumental task of unseating Johnson, however, he would have to make the flyweight division’s 125-pound limit – a feat many people seem to be skeptical he’s capable of.

Though Dillashaw has claimed repeatedly that he could cut to flyweight with adequate preparation, he’s now shared some photos that he hopes will prove he can pull off the weight class drop. The first of these pictures shows Dillashaw, absolutely shredded, the night before his recent title win over Cody Garbrandt. The second photo, which was taken yesterday, shows him teetering just above 145 pounds, which is pretty low given that he has no fight booked.

In this post, Dillashaw echoes a sentiment he shared on a recent episode of BJ Penn Radio, during which he assured that he can successfully make flyweight if the proper science is employed.

“I’m fighting Demetrious Johnson, the pound-for-pound best in the world, so if I’m gonna go out there and prove to them I’m the best fighter, I’ve gotta give myself my best chance and that’s to make the weight the right way, very scientifically and be on top of my game.”
