Urijah Faber May Come Out Of Retirement To Fight TJ Dillashaw

MMA

Former WEC Bantamweight Champion Urijah Faber retired after defeating Brad Pickett by unanimous decision at UFC On Fox 22 in December of last year.

If there is anything that may cause the fighter to come out of retirement, that would be a bout with UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw.

“I would say probably the [fight] with the most zeroes behind it, number one. You know, I would say probably T.J. Dillashaw. That sounds like a good time,” Faber said at a Metro PCS event before UFC 217.

Faber and Dillashaw haven’t been on the best of terms with each other since Dillashaw left Team Alpha Male a few years back.

In an interview with Forbes magazine, the former WEC Bantamweight Champion said fighting is the best way to settle things.

“(Fighting is the) oldest way of settling disputes on the freaking planet,” says Faber.

Dillashaw recently hit Team Alpha Male with a huge blow when he defeated Cody Garbrandt to win the UFC Bantamweight Title for a second time at UFC 217.

The newly crowned champion has stated in the past that he would fight Faber, but his focus on the moment may be diverted to the UFC Flyweight Champion in Demetrious Johnson.
