Urijah Faber: 'Amazing' TJ Dillashaw has a great, great style for Jose Aldo

"You know, part of the reason of why TJ is so great is that he really believes in himself and he's an amazing athlete. So we'd really have to ask Barao how he matches up with Aldo. I imagine that they're sparring partners and they work together and it can't be that one-sided. I think TJ has a great, great style for Jose Aldo. He likes to kick a lot as well and he's got good wrestling. I think the size is maybe the only thing against TJ in the favor of Aldo, but TJ will definitely be fast so I'll never count TJ out that's for sure."

There has been a lot of talk about who the next contender will be for reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Among them is top 145-pound attraction Conor McGregor, as well as the resurgent ex-lightweight kingpin Frankie Edgar. One name we haven't heard all that much is bantamweight roost ruler TJ Dillashaw, who Team Alpha Male broski Urijah Faber (via Submission Radio) -- who was knocked around by the Brazilian at WEC 48 -- insists would be fast enough to hang with "Junior" if the promotion opted to stage a champion vs. champion "super fight" (like this one). How about it fight fans, would you bet the house on "Killashaw?"
