Now, according to the latest news, it seems like T.J. Dillashaw is doing everything he can to win this fight. Sandhagen’s teammate and current LFA fighter Justin Wetzell shared some information that seemed suspicious.

Wetzell said, “Yeah, he had some Ludwig students come into our Friday sparring. I wasn’t there that day, but I heard about this from other people. They were like, ‘Yeah, there are these Ludwig affiliates and when Cory started sparring in the cage, they whipped out their phones and started recording.

“And then later on Instagram, they posted some sh*t on their story bragging, ‘Hey TJ, we got these rounds for you, we’ve got it all recorded.’ Yeah, it was just kind of, I dunno.”

Whether Dillashaw did really send spies into Sandhagen’s camp we do not know. However, according to Wetzell, even if he did, it won’t be useful.“A bit, but I don’t know, man, it is what it is. I don’t think it’s really going to help,” He said.
