TJ Lt Dan With Text

“Lt. Dan, ICE CREAM!” ~Forrest Gump

When TJ Dillashaw showed up to Team Alpha Male, he had very little boxing and sparring experience. He’d spar with dudes, yelling that them to bring it on, damn near begging guys to bring the storm.

This somehow reminded Urijah Faber of a scene from the 1994 flick “Forrest Gump,” where Lieutenant Dan was screaming into a storm like a mad man. From that day forward, TJ was known as “Lieutenant Dan.”

Watch Dillashaw explain his nickname in the video below…
