    The Renan that fought Mitch loses in ugly fashion.

    There would be so much homoerotic tension in a fight between TJ and Faber.

    Well, if TJ is gonna have any kind of lengthy title reign he's gonna have to get the Barao rematch out of the way at some point. With Cruz injured again, now makes sense to me.

    He was just baiting Gagnon with the hands down and seemingly lethargic movement.

    Why not Faber vs Barao and Dilla vs. Can? Build the hype!

    Barao already beat faber. Plus they didn't give barao instant rematch despite being a dominant champ before the dillashaw fight. I think he deserves after winning the gagnon fight.

    I don't think a TJ/Faber fight will happen without a massive falling out between the two ala Jones/Evans. The damage it would do to the Team Alpha Male brand would be dire.

    Hasn't Barao beat Faber twice already? They should just do it now and hope Cruz could be ready after.

    They gave him the immediate rematch, he just missed weight. Get to the back of the line.

    Poor Assuncao. Just continues to get overlooked.

    Edit: nevermind, Forgot he got hurt.

    They should fight. For the fun of competition. They both held titles, so what are they insecure about? "oh i lost to my teammate" so what? youve reached the ultimate goal already. everything after is far less important & just bonus

    They did give him the rematch. He had a problem with the weight cut and couldn't fight

    There is no one to get behind. Assuncao and Cruz are both injured.

    They did originally give barao an immediate rematch but he passed out cutting weight and was replaced by Soto.
