Let's talk about your bra. Yes, you read it right - your bra.

UFC Champion T.J. Dillashaw makes Sactown victory tour


SACRAMENTO - New UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw spent the entire week letting his new found fame as a world champion soak in with a victory media tour that included a stop at the News10 studios on Friday evening.

"The attention coming from this fight is huge," Dillashaw told News10. "Everyday it gets more real, and it is in full effect now."

Dillashaw shocked the mixed martial arts world when he dominated Renan Baro for five rounds before winning by a final round TKO last Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as the main event of UFC 173. The victory has been called one of the greatest upsets in the history of the UFC after he snapped Barao's 22 fight win streak.
