SACRAMENTO - UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw received a huge local honor this week when he and Mikuni Sushi unveiled a personal signature sushi roll.
The "T.J. Roll" developed by Dillashaw and Mikuni owner Taro Arai contains spicy tuna, fresh maguro sashimi, shrimp tempura, jalapeno and lobster.
"I told him (Taro) the things I like about the sushi he already makes," Dillashaw told News10. "We tried several different rolls and we finally figured it out."
"The "T" stands for tuna and "J" stands for jalapeno peppers," said Arai.
Dillashaw's roll was introduced two weeks before his championship rematch against Renan Barao as the main event of UFC 177 at Sleep Train Arena on August 29th in Sacramento.
