T.J. Dillashaw Believes A Fight With Urijah Faber Would be "The Easiest Payday Ever"

Bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw responds to retired fighter Urijah Faber who may be willing to come out of retirement to face him. Dillashaw says that it would be the easiest payday ever...

After T.J. Dillashaw defeated Cody Garbrandt for the Bantamweight title, retired fighter and UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber came out in an interview shortly after and said that a fight with Dillashaw could coax him out of retirement.

Faber and Dillashaw had a very public falling out several years ago; The feud stems from Dillashaw's long standing beef with Team Alpha Male of which Urijah Faber is a part of. Faber retired in December citing that his passion for the sport was waning in addition to heatlh reasons. Faber is still very active in the sport, however, as he's a coach and training partner on Team Alpha Male.

Dillashaw responded recently on BJ Penn Radio, saying the fight would be “the easiest payday ever” and suggested that it would be crazy for Faber to get a title shot now but that it would be great for him if Faber did. “That’s hilarious man. It sounds like the easiest payday ever. I mean it’s just comical. I mean, come out of retirement, get a title shot off of what, losing to Jimmy Rivera and looking like crap in his fights? I mean it’s hilarious. But, like I said, it’d be an easy payday, so I guess I shouldn’t be laughing at it. I should be pumping him up.”

What do you think? Do you think this would be an easy matchup for T.J. Dillashaw? Or do you think he's way over his head and underestimating Urijah Faber?
