T.J. Dillashaw Earns a Huge Win over Vaughan Lee at UFC on FUEL TV 4

Publish date:

Team Alpha Male scored a recent victory when Chad Mendes defeated Cody McKenzie. Now, T.J. Dillashaw continued to winning ways by submitting Vaughan Lee Wednesday night at UFC on Fuel TV: Munoz vs. Weidman.

The biggest fight for Team Alpha Male comes on July 21 when Urijah Faber seeks the interim UFC featherweight title against Renan Barao at UFC 149.

Dillashaw, a finalist on The Ultimate Fighter, earned his second consecutive victory since a loss to John Dodson by securing a standing choke on Lee. He nearly submitted Walel Watson earlier this year, but had to settle for a decision.

"I was calm and waited for the opening," Dillshaw said. "I weathered the storm and waited for the right opportunity. Last fight I rushed it a little, so I remained calm this time."

Dillashaw didn't call anyone out for his next fight, but said he is welcome to a tough challenge in the division. He did mention not taking any fight with Faber right now, saying, "I can't fight my own teammate."
