T.J. Dillashaw has been asking for a rematch with Dominick Cruz for a while now, and on Friday evening, he took to social media to take another stab at it. Dillashaw offered the UFC champ a bet and is willing to put his entire ‘show’ money on the line.

“Yo what's up guys, first things first I need to congratulate Dominick Cruz for making the comeback he did. But it's time to put your money where your mouth is,” Dillashaw wrote on Instagram. “Tired of all the drama no more campaigning or talking shit to get this title fight rematch. I'm willing to bet 100k that I beat you in a rematch, you win I fight for free you lose you match my bet.”

“Time to put up or shut up! I believe I'm the better fighter and just want to prove it. Where you at, don't be scared homie. This is as real as it gets! You Talking about money fights, look no more here it is! I obviously believe in myself do you?”

Cody Garbrandt, who is likely to receive the next title shot, has since responded to Dillashaw. Interestingly enough, he implied that his former teammate has been using performance enhancing drugs.

T.J.’s former mentor in Urijah Faber also threw out similar statements, and Dillashaw has gone on record to say that the insinuations of PED use really pissed him off.

Cruz on the other hand, thinks that it’s a ‘scumbag move’ to accuse a former teammate of PEDs after leaving the camp.
