Dana White and TJ Dillashaw Hate Being Asked 'Who's Next'

Probably Assuncao though...
Although Dana White isn't a fan of being asked who a fighter's next opponent might be after a fight, he does have a good idea in TJ Dillashaw's case. White and Dillashaw spoke following Dillashaw's win at UFC 177, with White saying that a rematch with Raphael Assuncao "makes sense." Check out the highlights:
Dillashaw on a potential fight with Renan Barao: "For now, it's behind me. I just had to beat Joe Soto. I had to switch my mind up in one day."
Dillahsaw on who he might fight next: "I hate those questions of ‘Who do you want to fight next?' I don't know, man. I've just been thinking about one person for the last 10 weeks, and then I had to switch it up last night. Those are the questions I hate the most. I'd rather just have some fun tonight, hang out, and we'll figure it out later."
Dillashaw on being willing to fight whenever the UFC tells him: "I'll leave it in the hands of the UFC and Dana. I'm here to be a company man, be the champion, and do what I need to do. I'll be in there training (Chad) Mendes for (Jose) Aldo. I'm going to be in the gym; it's not like I'm not going to be training, just letting my body rest a bit. I'm ready whenever."
White on the 'who's next' questions: "I hate those questions, too, by the way."
