Dillashaw: Easton 'easy to figure out'


Coming from Team Alpha Male, a team known for their great strategy and game planning, TJ Dillashaw believes he has his next opponent Mike Easton figured out. 

On Easton: “He’s a very technical fighter. I’m not looking past him at all because he’s good, but I feel like I’m going to use his technical fighting style against him. He’s almost too traditional and does too much of the same stuff.”

On what he expects from Easton: “He seems like the same kind of fighter every time I’ve seen him in the cage. He hasn’t really switched it up yet, so maybe he’s been taking some time to plan it against me, but I feel he’s going to use his same style. He’s going to do the same footwork he does every time, come forward with the same punches. He’s kind of a real rhythmic fighter. He does the same thing over and over again. It’s almost kind of easy to figure it out.”

He was hurt, but not badly. Herb didn't give him any time at all to try and recover, robbed him in an extremely important fight.

Too early? Did you want Dodson to kill him? He was badly hurt in that fight.

I still think that stoppage against Dodson was way too early. Fucking Herb Dean

Yeah that was a bs decision. Can't wait for this fight. Should be getting more coverage imo. Both guys are a lot of fun to watch.

I kind of agree. We've seen Dillashaw steadily improve ever since he lost to Dodson, and imo he should be on a 5 fight win streak (thought he beat Assuncao). Meanwhile, Easton sort of gets into the exact same striking match with his opponents that ultimately leads to a decision.
