TJ Dillashaw from "The Ultimate Fighter" is one of the mixed martial artists featured in Season 14 of the Spike TV reality competition series. Going into the season, his record is 4-0-0.

Born and raised in Angels Camp, California, TJ Dillashaw ("Ultimate Fighter") graduated from Brett Harte Union High School in 2004, where he was a standout wrestler, garnering All State honors his junior and senior years. Colleges took notice, and Dillashaw declined recruiting overtures from a number of schools including UC Davis and their superstar wrestler Urijah Faber (currently a UFC star) and accepted a full scholarship to Cal State Fullerton, where he majored in Kinesiology. During his collegiate wrestling career, Dillashaw was a 3-time NCAA qualifier and earned a top ten ranking in the nation his senior year. In his senior year, Dillashaw's coach was UFC middleweight Mark Muñoz, who convinced him to postpone a planned career as a physician's assistant in favor of mixed martial arts.

Upon graduating in 2009, Dillashaw finally teamed up with Faber, joining Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, California. He has since won his first four fights as a professional mixed martial artist, with only his debut going to the judges' scorecards. He hopes that he and fellow Team Alpha Male member Brian Caraway end up on the same team while in Las Vegas the last six weeks, but realizes that, in this competition, loyalties from home may have to be suspended.
