Urijah Faber thanks Conor McGregor for ‘seeing the future’ with T.J. Dillashaw

It may have taken a while, but Urijah Faber has accepted Conor McGregor’s perspective

By Oscar Willis - 20 Apr 2017

He may have put up plenty of resistance at the time, but it seems Urijah Faber has come to a revelation.

During his season coaching opposite Conor McGregor, Faber and the Irishman repeatedly came to verbal sparring over the future of bantamweight T.J. Dillashaw. Essentially, Faber stated that Dillashaw was going to forever represent his team — team Alpha Male — while McGregor claimed the youngster was not matching the loyalty Faber showed.

Now, after episode one of The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption, it seems Faber is starting to agree with McGregor.

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.

After Dillashaw and Garbrandt got into a physical altercation on the show, Faber took to Instagram to post his feelings on the matter… and even went as far as thanking the UFC lightweight champion McGregor for opening his eyes.

“Sad to see my former friend [Dillashaw] lie about me on national television to save his reputation,” Faber posted. “He knows there was no ultimatum, he got lured by money and [Duane Ludwig] your (sic)welcome for employing you, (when u were broke, down & out) for 1 year and 3 months – of the 14 yr existence of [Team Alpha Male] 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 [Conor McGregor] for seeing the future.”
