All going well for the GOAT...?

All going well for Conor, if his megalomaniacal plan comes off.

What's his route to the belt?

-Beats Poirier
-Maybe Bermudez?
-Winner of Edgar vs Swanson?
-The Aldo if he beats Mendes?

-If Mendes beats Aldo (pffft) I'm guessing there's an immediate rematch there whatever the result, if TJ & Barao are any example. Can't see him sitting on the shelf if he's somehow #1 contender by that point


Would the UFC fastrack that if he could pull it off?

If Cub/Edgar winner doesn't get the shot then Conner will after he stops Dustin

If he beats Poirier, which i believe and hope he does not then it depends on Aldo vs Mendes. If Aldo wins, he gets the winner of Swanson vs Edgar; meanwhile Connor probably fights Bermudez. If Aldo loses then you got the rubber match with Mendes while Connor should probably have to face Bermudez and then someone else

I thought Cub said he won't fight Edgar and that he would wait on the Aldo/Mendes fight?

I agree. I think when Conor stops dustin, he's next in line. Dustin is ranked what, #5. If he ko's him and looks impressive, i can see him getting the next shot after mendez. If mendez gets injured, I can definitely see conor taking his place.

Cub maybe deserves it more if he beats Edgar, but how marketable is that rematch compared to a fight with Conor? And not too many people will pay to see the rematch between Edgar and Aldo either. Conor sells cards, finishes fights and acts like a boss in the process.

UFC makes that fight I think.
