SACRAMENTO - UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw was given a tasty honor this week.
Mikuni owner Taro Arai created a signature sushi roll, the "T.J. Roll" to honor the local champion. The roll is stuffed with tuna (for "T") and jalapeno (for "J"). It is also has fried shrimp tempura, a Japanese style guacamole, and topped with a lobster tail.
Thursday night at Mikuni Sushi Midtown, Dillashaw played waiter and hand delivered the roll to a lucky couple who not only met the champion in person, but were also given free tickets to his local title fight.
UFC 177 features a rematch between Dillashaw and former champion Renan Barao as the main event at Sleep Train Arena on August 30th.
