Dillashaw: I’d fight Faber if UFC made it 'worth our while'


TJ Dillashaw is a rising fighter out of Urijah Faber's Team Alpha Male and will next fight for the UFC bantamweight title at UFC 173. Should Dillashaw take the bantamweight title from Renan Barao, it's possible he could be paired with coach and teammate Faber in the future. 

How would he feel about a fight with his friend and longtime coach?

As for his longtime teammate Urijah Faber, Dillashaw suggests that they would consider the bout if the UFC motivated them financially.

"If they were to make it worth our while then I imagine we would, but you know it's a business and we'll have to go through that tunnel when it comes."

I'm sure Uriah would fight him for whatever amount of money. His drive for a UFC championship belt is likely greater than anything else.

Everyone would fight their friend/teammate/brother/etc... if the money was right. I'd fight my mom and knock her ass out if someone offered us $50M each. Actually prob a lost less. There is always a point where someone will say "ok."

I never been a fan of Tj's but he has a point this is the fight business and it's all about making money and winning the title If your in the same weight class no matter if your on the same team or not you should fight if you guys are matched up I respect the kid for not being one of these fighters who say I can't fight a team mate .Besides this is not a team sport!
