1. The Sherdog Forums are currently experiencing technical difficulties, and we are working on it. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Was anyone else inspired by T.J Dillashaws performance?

    were any other athletes or common people on sherdog inspired in their life after watching the 9 to 1 underdog T.J Dillashaw destroy the champ, Barao?

    it makes me think anything is possible, so get off your couch Sherdog, you can become a champ just like Dillashaw...maybe not in fighting, but you can become a champion in garbage disposal or whatever your field of work is!

    From completely counting TJ out to seeing one of the best striking performances in MMA, I am certainly a little inspired

    Haha, pretty much this. I watched the fight three times and then I went and split some firewood because I was all amped up.

    Not very often though. Wasn't he a 9 to 1 underdog at one point? Must've been at least 5 to 1 on fight night.

    It made me stop training UFC for a while so if Velasquez ever fought me, he'd have a chance to beat me.

    Indeed.

    It inspired me to take some shots, smoke a bowl and then bang my girlfriend before I passed out at 4 am. If he'd lost, I would have gone straight to bed.

    Weidman inspired me .. TJ not so much.. maybe it's because he's a 5ft5 midget

    Indeed. I even wrote a haiku:




    Dillashaw dancing
    Barao plodding like a cow
    Gosh is Dana dumb​

    In your face.
    I think "The Pickler" would be a great nickname for TJ.

    Thank you, Tony Robbins. That was inspiring.
