UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw has been in the middle of a feud between long-time friend and owner of Team Alpha Male, Urijah Faber, and his striking coach, who also happens to be a former trainer at Alpha Male, Duane Ludwig.

Now Dillashaw will be making a move but it does not seem as if he is picking sides.  Dillashaw will move to Colorado for his next fight camp but will not be training exclusively with Ludwig who lives there, and he won’t be with Faber either.

Dillashaw told MMAFighting.com:

“In regards to my upcoming fight camp, I will be doing my training in Colorado. The last six years at Team Alpha Male have been irreplaceable and my brothers there will forever be family to me. I thank each and every one of them for helping me along the way and being a part of this journey we’ve shared. This is not the end of being a part of the Team Alpha Male family, but a new chapter in my career. 

“I will be spending my next full training camp with Team Elevation as they’ve offered me an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up, with an incredible coaching staff and state of the art facilities.

“I want to thank everyone for the continued support as this has not been a decision I’ve taken lightly.”
