T.J. Dillashaw is a finalist in the TUF 14 145-pound division, vs the winner of Saturday's Johnny Bedford versus John Dodson fight. In an interview with Pro MMA Radion, he talked about the fighter house (prison), coach Bisping (hypocrite), and Bisping vs. Mayhem fight at the TUF Finale (depends)
On the TUF house
"[Prisoners] almost have it even better. They get to watch TV, they don't have to make weight, they get to listen to music, they don't have cameras following them around everywhere they go in the house.
"It was crazy, man. You're hanging out with people you could possibly be fighting with shortly. You don't know who or what's going on, you've got people getting in cliques together, talking crap about each other, hearing the same stories that guys are telling over and over and over because they're running out of crap to talk about. Some of the guys are out of the tournament so they're getting drunk and being ridiculous.
"It's crazy when you have that much testosterone in one house."
On coach Michael Bisping
"The worst thing, he gets involved in competitions, any type of competition that there is. The competition was pranking each other and being jerks to the other team and he exceeded that level and kinda pushed it to the extreme, he wanted to be the best at what we were doing so I think he was being a bit of a hypocrite at some points and kinda got out of hand in terms of antagonizing the other team."
On Bisping vs. Mayhem
"It all depends where it goes. If it stays on the feet, Bisping's got good takedown defense and it seemed like he was working on that a lot while we were there, I think Bisping's gonna win the fight if it stays on the feet. If it goes to the ground, I just feel like Miller's experience in jiu-jitsu will take over and he'll win the fight on the ground so it all depends on where this fight ends up going."
