    Easiest 30-27 or 50-45 ever for TJ. This assuming Faber can survive to go to a decision.

    I'm sure that Faber was relieved about that as well.

    Faber went out in a good way. Never had the real downslide/decline. I think there is something to be said for a guy who could still have been competitive with the bulk of the division opting to call it a career, setting the career end date, win, lose or draw and then going out on a victory.

    I don't think Faber is someone who is going to look back on his career with any regrets. He fought elite level competition for much of his career. He was always a hard worker, always in shape, and even when he lost and lost bad, he got back in there without issue and fought again.

    They'll settle that in the streets naturally.

    Somebody call Chael and get it booked.

    Wait, I might actually have his number.

    I would have liked to see that fight but Faber had no chance.

    Surprised that TJ hasn't commented on it yet. He probably couldn't care less, but it would sell. Should've put them on TUF for Faber's retirement match.

    Seriously, Faber stands no chance with striking.

    I would watch them sub wrestle for keeps, though.

    if TJ loses and Garbrandt wins Faber should come out of retirement and fight Cody for the crown

    I envision the build up like this
    Faber: "TJ Duane Ludwig is evil!"

    TJ: "From my point of view, the Alpha Males are evil!"

    and after Faber victory

    Faber: "You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the Beta Males, not join them! Bring balance to the force... not leave it in darkness!"

    TJ: "I HATE YOU!"

    Faber: "TJ You were my brother, I loved you"

    Retiring doesn't mean there's no coming back

    BJ Penn retires every week and still gets booked to fight

    TJ didn't want that fight, you can tell he still likes/respects Urijah enough not to put a final nail in the coffin of their friendship by kicking his ass in front of thousands of people

    The build up was kinda halfway, and even that the actual fight might not live up.
