Urijah Faber Reveals Private Text Convo, Seperates Fact From Fiction In Ludwig-TAM Beef

The rivalry between “The California Kid” Urijah Faber, TJ Dillashaw, and Duane “Bang” Ludwig is far from over.

UFC has brought one of their top rivalries to the forefront as the twenty-fifth season of “The Ultimate Fighter” kicked off last night. UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody “No Love” Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw will be coaching opposite of each other for weeks until they settle the score inside the octagon at “UFC 213”.

Garbrandt’s rise to the top of the UFC’s bantamweight division seemed like it happened overnight, but the Team Alpha Male fighter proved he was championship material long before he got his title shot. Garbrandt has put all but one of his opponents to sleep, and he hopes to make up for that when he steps into the octagon with rival Dillashaw.

Dillashaw, a former member of Team Alpha Male, has donned the nickname of “snake” after leaving the team in order to join Elevation Fight Team. The split caused a major rift between most members of Team Alpha Male and Dillashaw, and now the rivalry will come to a head during this season of Ultimate Fighter.

Well before the departure of Dillashaw, however, temporary coach Duane Ludwig was helping out at Team Alpha Male before he became one of the coaches of Elevation Fight Team. Faber took to social media to dress down both Ludwig and Dillashaw with the following post:

“Sad to see my former friend @tjdillashaw lie about me on national television to save his reputation. He knows there was no ultimatum, he got lured by money ?And @ludwigmartialarts your welcome for employing you (when u were broke, down & out) for 1 year and 3 months – of the 14 yr existence of @teamalphamalemma, a team built with some of my closest friends, with blood, sweat, and tears. And thanks Duane for trying to warn me about TJ being sold off, once he won the belt (see the text on 3rd slide). Thank u @thenotoriousmma for seeing the future ? Thank u @cody_nolove for being a real champion inside and outside of the octagon ?? Thank u to @studshowradio for the best podcast ever (kinda?) My coaching staff that is the best in the world @justinbuchholz_ @holdsworthmma @lastcall155 @dustinakbari @fabiopradobjj @masterthong916 @joey_rodriguez916 And for the word LOYALTY which is hard to find.”


What do you make of this whole situation?
