TJ Dillashaw suffered a dislocated shoulder ahead of his loss to Aljamain Sterling at last month’s UFC 280 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Abu Dhabi, an injury that could leave the former bantamweight champion out of the game. fighting for over a year.
“We’ll see how well things go for me outside of the cage and how busy I am and what life is like,” Dillashaw told Food Truck Diaries. “I may be so busy – I’m already a bit busy – that I don’t even have time to come back. Even when I came back, I had to put stuff in the back to deal with the fight. This business is going to pay me for the rest of my life while this fight is only going to pay me now. But when I was eight weeks away, it was like, ‘Okay, sorry, guys. If you need to reach me, I don’t do anything business related unless it’s related to my fight.
Dillashaw, 36, abruptly retired from combat sports after hearing from his surgeon about the severity of his shoulder injury. The new plan is to focus on her current business activities (like this one) while spending more time with her son.
“I have my 5-year-old son,” Dillashaw continued. “The only fights he really remembers are my last two fights. Sandhagen, I blew my knee. So during fight camp, I’m not a dad. I’m and I’m not, but I’m in Colorado for half of training camp, I’m traveling, I’m gone, I miss him when I’m gone. I come back, I’m on one leg, I’m lying down and I can’t play with him as I would like. Then my fight against ‘Aljo’, I’m in Abu Dhabi for two weeks, I’m having shoulder surgery. He said to me probably a dozen times, ‘Dada, I don’t want you to fight anymore.’ Oh damn. It digs deep, you know? Then go to the doctor. It’s still hard. »
If and when he returns, this longtime rival will be ready.
