Things have really soured between T.J. Dillashaw and his former mentor, Urijah Faber.
T.J. surrendered his UFC Bantamweight Title to Dominick Cruz in a close split decision call this past January. Despite losing a very close fight, Dillashaw was not given an immediate rematch, and will instead have to watch his two biggest rivals face off for the belt at UFC 199.
The Viper made headlines by ditching Team Alpha Male in October 2015 to train with former TAM head coach Duane Ludwig at his new home in Colorado. The tension has increased since the split and the feud does not appear to be coming to a close any time soon.
Faber recently appeared on “The Herd” to promote his upcoming rubber match with Cruz. After some banter between the two foes, Faber once again took aim at his former teammate:
“I fought T.J. Dillashaw for 8 years, every day. I will smoke T.J. Dillashaw, he looks like a pre-pubescent little teenager right now, because USADA came in.”
