If you believed all the drama regarding Team Alpha Male and TJ Dillashaw’s departure is far from over, well, you were right on the money.
Since Dillashaw announced he was leaving TAM to go train with the Elevation Fight Team in Colorado, and ex-TAM coach Duane Ludwig, the bantamweight champ and Urijah Faber have feuded publicly.
Well, recently it was revealed that TAM’s Joseph Benavidez and Lance Palmer have been doing some training with Elevation, and their teammate Cody Garbrandt isn’t happy about it. While speaking to “Submission Radio” recently, the bantamweight said this (quote via Bloody Elbow.com):
“…You know, (Joseph Benavidez and Lance Palmer are) going out there and training with TJ — they have previous relationships with him so it’s whatever — but they’re going to come back and train with us in the team? I don’t know how well that’s going to go over.”
“You know, I’ll probably end up fighting TJ in my career, so I guess I’ll focus on this fight and I guess we’ll have to talk about that when it comes. You know, they’ll continue to train with TJ, basically the enemy, and Duane and all those guys, so I don’t know.”
Garbrandt is schedule to fight John Lineker at UFC FN 83 on February 21st. That should be fantastic.
