Many people who watched the UFC bantamweight title fight between Dominick Cruz and T.J. Dillashaw on Sunday can agree that the fight was extremely close. Cruz ended up winning a split decision to reclaim the belt from Dillashaw in a competitive five-round fight

Dillashaw poured his feelings out in an Instagram post talking about the fight and calls Joe Rogan out for what he feels was bias commentating in favor of Cruz. Although judges do not hear what the UFC color commentators are saying during the fight, Dillashaw simply seemed bothered by Rogan’s commentating.

Dillashaw’s Instagram post caption:

“Man I’m so lucky that I get to do what I love everyday of my life and put on shows for the world. Love being a martial artist and the person it has made me. Like me or hate me for what ever reason and think what ever you believe to be true, I just appreciate you watching and hope you enjoyed that fight. Congrats to Cruz for enduring everything he has and being able to come out and perform at his best, true respect for his determination and athletic ability. I know everyone has their right to their own opinion but as I laid in bed the last two nights not able to sleep thinking how I lost that fight baffled me. Not saying that it was a robbery because I knew that it was a close fight and have no one to blame but myself for leaving it that fu#king close. Did not fight my best and definitely things I could have done different laying there thinking to myself. Finally got a chance to watch the fight on my flight home today and after watching I’m even more confident I won that fight! Even the two rounds I was initially giving to him were much closer when I rewatched it, to be fair I gave my self three rounds but have no problem saying I won four rounds. @joerogan might need to go back and watch it again to hear how biased he was commentating, I agree with you it was a good close fight but think you picked Cruz before the fight started. HOLY SHIT WHAT A GOOD FIGHT! Better than I remember and want to do it again. Please Cruz, don’t retire and give me that shot so I can get back what I believe is mine. @ufc”
