Stann: ‘Dillashaw’s Making The Right Decision, You Have To Be Selfish’

October 10, 2015 8:24 am by BJPENN.COM News

Earlier in the week it was revealed that UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw will be leaving Team Alpha Male to train with Team Elevation, in Colorado.

We’ve heard from both Dillashaw and Urijah Faber, who recruited Dillashaw out of college and helped bring him up, on the matter.

Now, we have an outsiders opinion of how things played out . Former UFC fighter and current analyst, Brian Stann, recently spoke with SiriusXM Fight Club and was asked about the situation. Stann went on to explain why he thinks TJ made the right choice, saying that at the end of the day, this is a selfish sport.

“I think that TJ’s making the right decision, and here’s why, first and foremost in this sport you’ve got to be selfish. It is something that held me back a little bit in my career and at the end of the day this is about how much money you can make over the longest period of time you can do it. If TJ Dillashaw feels like that is the better environment for him to go to and make as much money as he can and maximizes opportunities then he’s got to do it, whether it hurts some friend’s feelings or not. His family and paying his bills to take care of his family come first, ahead of all else.”
