Is because TJ is not a natural 125’er. The criticism is fair that dj knows fighting tj is a huge risk because he’s bigger. But what is not fair to DJ is that if TJ wins, you already know he’s NEVER getting an instant rematch, and tj is NEVER going to fight at 125 again. Just doesn’t make sense for a guy to cut to the weightclass once, best the champion, and never be seen in that division again. MM has everything to lose, and absolutely nothing to gain from tj going down in weight... Besides the fans ‘respect’ lmao. Everyone is so disrespectful to him he doesn’t give a fuck about u guys anyway. And at least in fighting REAL 125 lbers he is virtually guaranteed to see them again if he loses.
