    Assuming that TJ trains with Bang in Colorado and Urijah stays at Alpha Male

    No fight scheduled just a hypothetical

    I doubt this fight will happen. Faber and Dillashaw are good friends and training partners.

    Faber might fight the former champ for a 3rd time though. He's still pissed about their last fight.

    I think it could...Dillashaw seemed pretty down for the right price

    I guess we'll see. I'd be quite surprised if Faber is his fight title defense.

    The more I think about it, the more I want that Title fight next!

    In my minds eye I see Urijah big brothering TJ.

    I think TJ's kicks would be largely neutralized by the threat of Urijah's takedowns/wrestling (which wasn't the case in the Barao fight).

    I think TJ outmatches him on the feet. Dillishaw is more polished with his stand-up, and has better technique than Urijah who relies more on athleticism and speed. Wouldn't count out Faber though.

    Sharpish.
    Toss up. We don't know if TJ can keep up the spectacular performances yet or if that was just the performance of a lifetime. Voted TJ because I think he's coming into his own and Urijah can't be on top forever.

    Urijah beats everyone but Barao. I hate the phrase "styles make fights" but its true.

    TJ Dillashaw is cross training. He will still be at team Alpha Male.

    Faber could catch him in a scramble or strategically outpoint him but I'd say 60/40 in favor of TJ. I just think Barao is an awful matchup for Faber and TJ is very tough for Barao. As we know, this doesn't necessarily mean TJ would beat Faber. TJ is peaking though now whereas Uriah has leveled off (albeit at a high level).

    tj via being better. Faber is getting old and hasn't evolved in a long time and tj is improving massive amounts each fight

    This fight won't happen, but if it did I'd have to go with TJ. I think from here we're going to see a streak of impressive wins, the kid just has something about him. I can't think of any way Faber beats him, he just doesn't seem as hungry for it either.

    And if Faber/Barao 3 happens Faber via 3 round regulation fight.
