    We all know how bad Faber wants to be champion, and if he is ever going to do it, now is the time. Styles definitely make fights, and I think Faber would beat Dillashaw easily. I know they are good friends and partners, but if Dillashaw leaves Alpha Male to go with Ludwig, then I could see Faber calling him out when he destroys Caceres. Now is your chance Faber!

    Faber has clearly stated that he won't be fighting Dillashaw. /Thread if I may.

    Yea I know, I'm just saying now is his opportunity. The only way I see the fight happening is if Dillashaw goes with Ludwig, which is a high possibility seeing how much he improved under him. These guys are competitors and at the end of the day if you want to be champion sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do.

    Faber has had enough chances to be champion. Let someone else get a shot geeze, what he fought for this belt 3 times already.

    If Barao gets an immediate shot, its a bunch of crock. The guy got totally outclassed and destroyed, let him face Mizugaki first. If the fight would have been close, then the rematch would be interesting.

    It wasn't a fluke loss. He was destroyed. I think he needs 2 wins to get a rematch.

    I don't know, it would definitely be a good fight and I think Faber would have a tremendous chance.

    There should be a mandatory minimum 1 fight in between rematches.

    TJ is bigger, faster and puts it all together better than Faber.

    Yea, I can see where you are coming from, but it should be that the best guys get the shot, and there is no doubt that Faber is the best guy right now, even better than Assuncao. I say let Faber fight Assuncao for the shot and give Barao vs Mizugaki or Barao vs Cruz the next shot.

    To be fair, the guy has really only lost to two different opponents in his current run.

    The kid he's trained from jump street finally realizes his potential and beats the guy that he couldn't himself so he sees this as his only chance to be a superstar again.

    That's completely cowardly. Faber is pure class. Never gonna happen.

    Dillashaw pretty clearly stated he was staying with TAM, and cross training with Ludwig on occasion, this fight won't happen. And in my opinion, even if they did fight , tj showed the ability to be able to fight anyone in the world last night, and I just don't think faber would have a lot for him, but who knows? you can never say who would win any fight for sure

    Faber's an ATG, and still an elite fighter but his championship days are over.

    Faber needs to train with Cruz in order to catch up with the fleet footedness of TJ imo
