After abruptly retiring from MMA competition earlier this month, former two-time UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw has finally spoken out about his decision. In an interview with Brendan Schaub , the polarizing ex-titleholder Dillashaw (17-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) detailed how the serious shoulder injury that he entered his October showdown with current champ Aljamain Sterling is not going to be an easy thing to rehab, and it made him question whether continuing to fight was his best option, especially given he has a young son. Although he did not 100 percent shut the door on ever fighting again, Dillashaw’s reasoning was understandable
