Wife, (Rebecca Dillashaw)
The American bantamweight champion is visibly married. In June 2014 T.J. Dillashaw and his longtime girlfriend Rebecca tied the wedding knot. Although the pictures of the wedding were not spread on social media, we were able to view some from the honeymoon that took place in Mexico. It is possible that the wedding took place there as well since T.J. exchanged photos of his family members there.
According to the photos that were published on social media, the couple seemed to have a good time on their honeymoon. It is on record that they must have met during their college years, as they studied at the same college they had been with for several years. In August 2017, ardent Rebecca announced on T.J.’s social media channel that she was expecting a male child to be named Bronson at birth. The couple posted a video of pregnant Rebecca sitting on the beach; she had drawn a heart with the word baby and the baby’s due date.
The little boy Bronson arrived during the 2017 holiday season, just after Christmas on December 28. Baby Bronson’s arrival extended the family beyond dogs, as she already had a family that included a Cane Corso named Smokey, two French bulldogs named Bunny and Cash, and a Pekingese named Mijo. T.J.’s wife has a private social media channel, although she maintains one exclusively for her Frenchies, who dresses her in cowboy costumes for photos. By all indications, T.J. Dillashaw seems to be living in marital bliss with his wife, as, on Valentine’s Day 2017, the mixed martial artist did her the honor of describing her as a strong woman and expressing how happy he is to have such a woman in his life.
The question of how rich Rebecca’s husband is can be answered by looking at the net worth of the mixed martial artist, which has been estimated by a reliable source at $1 million. His net worth, which he earned mainly from several UFC career fights and bonuses from multiple performances and honorable fights of the night, has placed him in 99th place among the richest UFC fighters.
