The most star-studded roster to hit freebie TV has just received yet another boost. A bantamweight bout between TJ Dillashaw (Pictured) and Mike Easton has recently been added to the “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz” lineup.
Dillashaw has rattled off two straight victories in the big leagues since losing in the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter 14” to John Dodson. The setback remains the lone blemish on Dillashaw’s resume.
