    Just go to thinking that most of the guys on this team are all around the same weight correct, 135-145 so could def be some weight class jumping, anyways has it be said that they will not fight other teammates? How does Faber fit into the situation? Dude is never far from a title shot and seems to beat everyone in the division not named Barao, so does he just take meaningful fights and ride off into the sunset? I know a UFC title would the topping on a great career. If Mendes beats Aldo, does this impact Faber in anyway to have two teammates beat champs that he came up short against, and if they did fight could Faber beat TJ or Chad? Since its mainly his team I could see him having a rule that if he holds a belt they can't challenge him, but if he is the challenger then its ok to fight.

    Faber needs at least 2 wins to get into the title picture.

    Who knows what will have happened by then. TJ has brought some new life to the division.

    Yeah, and who would've guessed? It looked like Barao had a multi-year lock on that belt before TJ buzzed through him.

    Faber is also their coach isn't he? I bet he is really happy for them.

    I don't think he would interfere in title shots now that one of them is champion and the other is trying again, but, who knows what he is thinking?

    Not to worry. There's no way TJ sticks it out with TAM. He's heading to Colorado with DL and thus a blood feud is born
