With the upper tier of the UFC's bantamweight division currently in shambles due to injuries, compelling fights for champion T.J. Dillashaw are hard to find. Regrettably for Dillashaw, the most marketable match-up out there for him right now is probably also one he'd be reluctant to accept: a teammate vs. teammate, student vs. teacher battle against Team Alpha Male captain and stablemate Urijah Faber.

Don't lean back in your leather chair, chickory in hand, and proclaim that "five frenetic rounds of only the most elite cardiovascular athletes working feverishly but methodically to break the will of the other man using only the four barest limbs what the lord'st given'st him" is the top thing, either.
