TJ Dillashaw leaves Team Alpha Male for new Colorado gym

UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw was able to bring gold to Team Alpha Male, but now he will be leaving the camp where he began his career for a new venture.

On Tuesday, reports surfaced that Dillashaw would be leaving the Urijah Faber led camp in Sacramento for a new gym in Colorado.

Globo was first to report the news.

For those wondering whether Dillashaw will continue to train with his striking coach, Duane Ludwig, the answer is yes. While Ludwig will not be affiliated with Team Elevation, Dillashaw has said that he will continue training with the man who allowed him to sharpen his standup skills.

Dillashaw’s first training camp at Team Elevation will begin shortly for his Jan. 17 title defense against Dominick Cruz at UFC Fight Night in Boston.
