Rob Font is open to welcome TJ Dillashaw, who will soon become eligible to fight again.
Rising Bantamweight title contender Rob Font is apparently eager to contest for the throne, and thus sees a way to it through the division’s former champion TJ Dillashaw. Dillashaw, who is serving a two-year ban for violating doping guidelines, will be making his return in 2021.
With the bar set to lift on January 19, 2021, Lieutenant Dan is in heavy demand and as of now it seems more than the champion-Petr Yan- the Bantamweight prospects want to see Dillashaw at the other end.
Rob Font Offers To Become The Comeback Opponent Of TJ Dillashaw
Jose Aldo, Cory Sandhagan, Dominick Cruz are the prominent names, who want to feature alongside TJ Dillashaw, and evidently, Rob Font is no different. In an interview with MMA Junkie, Font pushed his name forward to welcome Tj Dillashaw back and also commented about his potential state.
“I’m not going to sit there and bash this dude,” Font said. “It is what it is. He did what he did. He knows what he did. He has to live up to that. He has to make that walk knowing that that’s not in his system anymore, and that’s going to be big.
“Again, it’s all mental with this, so if you’re putting stuff into your body, you’re mentally broke already,” he continued. “So he’s going to have to make that walk knowing that he’s not on anything. He’s not juicing anymore and he’s going to have to fight. I think I’m the guy to welcome him back.”
TJ Dillashaw’s comeback is one of the most-anticipated future happenings of 2021, and who he will face is a subject of great discussion, one that may become intense in the coming days.
