Who is Rebecca Dillashaw? UFC fighter TJ Dillashaw's media expert wife helped run his firm
Here's a look at the fairytale romance between American MMA star and his wife, a well-known media personality who have been together for over 6 years
When you think of boxers or celebrities' personal life in general, it's commonly noticed that many of them are divorced or are in problematice relationships. However, that's not always the case. There are a large number of famous names who enjoy a happy married life, like American mixed martial artist TJ Dillashaw. He's been happily married for over six years now and the fairytale romance with his wife appears to be going as well as it was back in 2014.
Here at MEAWW, we've extensively covered notable boxers and their relationships. In May, we told you about Puerto Rican star Félix 'El Diamante' Verdejo, whose happy marriage to Eliz Marie Santiago Sierra was public following allegations he killed "girlfriend" Keishla Marlen Rodriguez. We've also covered the happy marriage of Jermell Charlo and Chy Westbrook. In early July, following the shocking death of boxer Chris Eubank's son in Dubai, we wrote about the boxer's relationship with his wife Karron Meadows.
Now, we want to focus on Dillashaw ahead of his UFC Fight Night match against Cory Sandhagen. The two are set to square off at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas on July 25. As the main event of the night, expect it to be a thrilling competition. That brings us back to Dillashaw. Here's everything we know about his wife.
Who is TJ Dillashaw's wife?
We can confirm Dillashaw has been happily married to Rebecca Dillashaw since 2014. Like TJ, Rebecca is an avid dog lover who has given her beloved pooch its own Instagram account. Born Rebecca Pappe Reynoso, she was raised in Angels Camp, California. Reportedly, Rebecca attended Sonoma State University, where she obtained a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communications. She then began a long and successful career in the media.
Rebecca's first gig was as a story logger for MTV Networks. From there, she became a marketing and PR assistant at Lionakis, before working with Sactown Magazine. Reportedly, she also had a stint at McCarthy Building Companies, a Missouri-based firm. The firm is well known for projects like Garage Mahal (Las Vegas), Johnson County Medical Examiner Facility (Olathe, Kansas), and the Texas Solar plant in Texas.
It's unclear how and when Rebecca and TJ met, but we can confirm the duo got married in a low-key function in Sayulita, Mexico. Following the 2014 marriage, Rebecca served as the director of operations at TJ Dillashaw Inc. a company that was formed in 2014 but was dissolved in 2018. She was also seen in the TV series ‘UFC Embedded: Vlog Series' and supporting her husband as he fought across the country.
In 2017, the couple welcomed their first child Bronson. Even after becoming parents, they haven't slowed down their professional lives. Alongside boxing, TJ helps Rebecca run a Clean Juice franchise outlet in Yorba Linda, California. According to her Instagram page, she is currently running Shop Little, a store dedicated to children. Unfortunately, both her Twitter and Instagram accounts are set to private, so we haven't been able to find out more about these efforts.
Like so many others, it appears TJ and Rebecca are extremely happy and enjoying their time together. TJ's Instagram routinely features the family's happiest moments, whether it is at home or on the road. Will the marital bliss give him the boost he needs to beat Sandhagen? We will find out soon enough.
