In the aftermath of T.J. Dillashaw's sensational striking performance in winning the bantamweight title from Renan Barao at UFC 173, there has been much speculation on the future of striking coach Duane "Bang" Ludwig.

With all of the stories and attention surrounding TAM and Bam, I get the impression that the whole issue is Faber isn't into Duane because he lost his fight to Barao. Seems like everyone else there is fine with the guy but Faber is the only one who has aired a grievance.

I don't think that's it, personally. If anything, Faber is butthurt that the "Bang MT" brand is overshadowing the Faber/Team Alpha Male brand.

Same here. Either way, it seems like the issue is almost entirely between Urijah and Duane. Which is a shame, because everyone else has clicked with Ludwig, especially T.J.

I don't disagree with that, I think both ideas kind of go hand in hand. This guys getting his name mentioned too much while Faber didn't win the championr equals buttchin-hurt.
