Last Fight: Joe Soto
Reason: T.J. Dillashaw deserves all the praise in the world for putting his belt on the line when Renan Barao pulled out of their rematch because he couldn’t make weight. T.J. had every right to say he didn’t want to fight a guy he didn’t train for, but instead he bit down on his mouthpiece and went to war with Joe Soto, who was given the fight on less than 24 hours’ notice. T.J. did what he needed to do in the fight, using his footwork and striking to win. This allowed him to basically win every round. In the fifth, he closed the show with a devastating head kick. I am not sure who he fights next, but I know I will be watching it.
