                      Ariel is the worst. Always poking and prodding with the same line of questions. He doesnt give two shits about a fighter being uncomfortable.

                                            Kind of a shoddy story.. Lies or not, I wouldn't trust Dillashaw in training.

                                                  Holdsworth is being real on this subject just as Faber and Garbrandt were. If you don't believe me check this video out of TJ cheapshotting a K1 champion training partner:

                                                    TJ is a great fighter, but this rings true. I have seen some of those videos of him getting overly aggressive at training, that super aggressiveness spilling over outside the octagon in small but noticeable ways.

I love T.J's mentality as a fighter, he hates to feel defeated and will do what it takes to let you know it. If more fighters were like T.J the UFC would be as good as it once was. Only a few people on the roster has that mentality, Conor, T.J. Johanna, Max, Tony Ferguson, Nate, Nick. Love em or hate em, they are all warriors.

                                                                                    you know typically I would avoid the drama like this type thing and I'd consider it like he said he said situation beucase who can know for sure and everyone that was there is having beef with the split from the team. BUT Holdsworth held off comment for so long that I believe him. if it was sour grapes over a training injury he'd have said it sooner but he waited till basically everyone else had talked about it so he finally did. to me that indicates he is believable.
