He can be ready whenever...
T.J. Dillashaw spoke with MMAjunkie about wanting his upcoming first bantamweight title defense to be against Raphael Assuncao. Check out the highlights:
On when he'd like to have the fight: "I can be ready to fight whenever. The UFC has a time frame as far as booking their fights. I think they're booked all the way to September. So that would be a good time right there, September-October."
On Assuncao as his opponent: "I think it's an exciting fight both ways. I don't care where the fight happens. I think it would be a win-win for everybody. Hopefully they put it together. It was a close fight, our records, guys we've beat.
