    Lot's being said since TJ won the title that Urijah and TJ would fight if push came to shove. Looks like Faber really doesn't want to fight TJ unless TJ asks him as a "favour" to do so.

    Because mma math? I dunno, I think Faber might have a good chance at beating TJ if they ever fought.

    He already knows the outcome. Don't blame him.

    Translation would be I want to be the true Alpha Male Wolf. :icon_lol: Urijah has all of TAM in his corner and TJ has Ludwig, bring it on.

    He also explained the "beef" between him and Ludwig. He said Ludwig wanted to leave and start his own gym but never told Faber until Faber asked him about it. To me it seems like Faber is mad Ludwig didn't tell him first.

    He's probably pissed TJ didn't tell him he was planning on beating Barao.

    I forgot that Wagney Fabiano was a member of Nova Uniao. That makes the score 4-3 in favor of NU. Chad could tie it up with a win over Aldo.

    Can't really blame him. TJ has basically spent his entire career under Urijah. I doubt it ever happens, but if so, I'd pick TJ. His new style is like a combination of Dom's footwork with Dodson's power, maybe even more. If he can consistently perform at that same level than 135 is about to be locked da fuqq down.

    Not even close. TJ already said he would consider fighting Faber if the price is right.

    Not so sure. I think Faber has wanted to hold UFC Gold more than anything. That might be his best chance at a belt.

    Well at least now TJ winning gives TAM some sort of credibility. They have been working hard trying to get a title for a long time.

    I'd like to see it...Thought Faber vs Barao was stopped early and he is a threat to anyone in that class...Hope it wouldn't damage TAM though...They are tops beside NU...Interesting fight in my opinion:)

    No they aren't even fucking close. Nate and Nick are blood brothers, Urijiah and Dillashaw are friends. Anyone with siblings should be insulted by this retarded comparison

    Shocking that Bang and Faber would have a rift. Shocking that Bang would focus on the more talented fighter. Unprecedented in UFC history. I'm still wondering why Rashad got jelly after Greg Jackson started riding Bones' jock.
