    Sucks for Barao, as he'll have a harder time getting the money he deserves. And it must be conflicted emotions for Faber, as his teammate just won the belt he tried twice fighting for. Would he even consider fighting TJ?

    i actually asked him in his reddit AMA a month or two ago if he'd fight TJ and he said no.

    Gonna be interesting to watch what happens at team Alpha Male. The "alpha male" just clearly became the beta. Dillashaw is king shit at A.M. now and he has the belt to prove it.

    Barao got a new contract before this fight so that's prob a good thing...he will have to redeem himself though

    TJ could possibly leave Sacramento and move tiebreaks with Bang as he was called the "teachers pet"

    And apparently Faber had some issues with Duane so if it does go down like that, there's an instant story line

    Interesting. But now TJ has the belt, and what if he leaves TAM and follows Bang?

    As amazing as TJ looked tonight, I don't expect him to hold onto the belt for very long. Faber will have another shot.

    You mean he was bang's pet, and that caused some resentment?

    Honestly, if, as a striking coach, he was that important, then Dillashaw should follow Ludwig; prior to Ludwig, Team Alpha Male was found lacking in multiple places, and I get a sense that, without him, they'll once again be found lacking.

    The division is wild now. Who does TJ fight, who does Faber fight, who does Barao fight, who does Cruz fight when he comes back? How many fights does Barao need to get a title shot?

    To 145 with Faber? If Mendes can't get it done.

    I predict that T.J. is going to leave Team Alpha Male to train at Duane's new gym and start a rivalry with Faber.

    That's what I'm alluding to, I wouldn't be shocked if faber was offered to fight TJ that he'd say yes if he left with Bang

    I think it breathes life in the division to be honest

    TJ vs Assuncao for the title, Faber for legacy fights (Edgar) after the one against Bruce Leeroy.

    I could see TJ and Castillo leaving with Bang. IMO, they both showed the most dramatic improvements with Duane as the head coach. Well, so has Mendes.

    If Faber is going to stay in that division and not fight TJ. Then what's the point?
