UFC Hall Of Fame member and former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra recently went on a tirade against Dillashaw while hosting UFC Unfiltered, saying (via MMA Junkie):
“It’s downright disgusting. What legacy? What (expletive) legacy? We don’t know what he could have done if the playing field was even – on a level playing field. I really feel for Cody. I do – because in that first fight, in the first one, he hurt (Dillashaw), too. He almost took him out. Maybe that slight edge was because he’s a (expletive) cheater. I never had a problem with that kid, and I always got along with (coach) Duane (Ludwig). But this is just foul. Cody Garbrandt – who knows what that takes out of the rest of his career? How about that, T.J.? What does it take out of this kid’s career that he gets stopped twice by a (expletive) cheater? He might not have as long as a career, so he might not have as many options to make the money that he would have made. That sounds dramatic, but that’s the (expletive) truth of it. So (expletive) you, T.J. This is (expletive) bull(expletive). This is disgusting. I can’t say it enough. Everyone that got stopped by him should be furious and at the same time, look at yourself and go, ‘All right. Now it makes sense. Now it makes (expletive) sense (that I lost to him).'”
While Dillashaw has issued a video apology for the failed drug test and suspension, no comment has been issued at this time as to what was said by Serra.
