De två lagkamraterna T.J. Dillashaw och Urijah Faber ligger i toppen i bantamviktsdivisionen och många har undrat om de två någonsin kommer att möta varandra. Faber berättar att han gärna skulle vilja ha bältet men inte har några planer på att fråga om en match, utan att endast skulle gå med på det om Dillashaw föreslog det.
Det här berättade Faber, via ”BloodeyElbow”:
You never know what happens. I myself am not gunning for that fight. I’m always gunning for a title and I don’t have a lot of time left on this sport. It’s not the fight I’m looking for, but you never know where the chips may lie and what will happen.
I think there are some other big fights as well. We still haven’t seen TJ really blow up yet. I know people talk about fights for the belt that are huge, but there have been fights for the belt that no one really cares about. It takes the right two people to tango to make it really count.
I believe in TJ. I think he has the ability to be someone that stands out in the weight class, but it does take time. Until that time, it’s still me at the weight class. And that’s something I always told TJ. If he ever thought (a fight between us) would be a best opportunity for him whether it be monetarily or exposure-wise, if he wanted to ask for that fight, I would do it.
But that’s about the only way it would happen.
