The hotly contested fight between Dominick Cruz and TJ Dillashaw at Boston was won by Cruz through a split decision. It was a close fight with many insisting that Cruz used his elusiveness and tactics to land as many strikes as possible on Dillashaw while others believe that ‘The Viper’ Dillashaw should have been declared the winner.
The controversy seems to have reached new heights now with Dillashaw posting on his Instagram account claiming that he who won the fight, acknowledging indeed that it was “a close fight” and he himself is to be blamed for leaving it that close.
Congratulating and appreciating Cruz for his endurance, Dillashaw has blasted commentator Joe Rogan in the same breath and has accused him of being biased against him.
Though judges can’t hear commentator’s views, Rogan nevertheless has earned some criticism for his supposedly biased ways of calling fights (and several other things).
Dillashaw took to Instagram to share his thoughts about the recent fight:
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
