UFC Ultimate Fighter 25 coaches Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw have been having a verbal sparring war since Dillashaw's exit from Team Alpha Male.
Things took a turn towards physicality on the debut episode of TUF 25, where Garbrandt went after Dillashaw during an intense argument.
Garbrandt has always claimed to have is a video of him knocking out Dillashaw during a sparring session during their time together at Team Alpha Male.
The UFC bantamweight Champion took to Instagram to say that he would release the video to the highest bidder, with the money earned going to a charity of Dillashaw’s choice.

Dillashaw, upon hearing the news, has agreed to the deal while taking a shot at the perceived “daddy issues” that his longtime rival has.
“I told him to go for it. Release it, because I, for one, don’t believe it and even if he did, I agree with Matt, I think it’s petty. I think they’re reaching. It’s something like, we put this time and sweat and tears into the gym, and he’s got this one clip of him doing good. What about the 70% of the time that I was doing awesome that [Justin] Buchholz has footage of? You know what, I could care less what happened then. I get to make, on pay-per-view, some film of me beating Cody’s ass that the world’s going to see and I’m going to make a lot more than selling it to TMZ. So they can do whatever they want with the practice room because we all know how it went down. So I could care less. Release the footage. The charity should be something for kids without fathers so they don’t grow up to act like Cody," Dillashaw said on UFC Unfiltered.
Once TUF 25 comes to a close, the UFC Bantamweight Champion will be defending the gold against Dillashaw at UFC 213.
