    You know what, I could very well see him getting it over Tony depending on how pissed Uncle D is still with Ferg injuring himself like that.

    I mean Eddie just beat Justin too, but in a more impressive fashion imo, Eddie rematch makes the most sense.

    Eddie should get it.

    Dustin needs 1 more solid win.
    Conor is out for a while.
    Tony is out for a while.
    Kevin Lee needs 2 more wins.

    He deserves the title shot over the rest. Tony isn't coming back early so he's the next.

    Tony might not be back until the end of the year

    Conor has legal shit to deal with and may not even want to cone back

    Eddie has 1 win since losing the title.

    Lee just lost and even if he beats Edson he'll only have 2 top 10 wins

    Dustin is the only logical option

    Ferg or Mcgregor will be ready by Sept or November which is when Khabib wants to fight next.

    For a year?? Shit didn't realise his injury was that bad...

    In that case I'd say do an Eddie/Poirier rematch and the winner fights Khabib after ramadan

    Poirier/Alvarez 2 for the interim title when Khabib pulls out.

    No, and he won't be getting one because we all know the UFC will do everything they can to make Conor/Khabib

    Tony is the rightful contender (unless he's not ready).

    Also I want an Eddie rematch.

    Now that some people mention it, Dustin might actually be the only contender ready to actually fight. So unless it’s Khabib/Conor, it will likely be Khabib/Poirier.

    I say it depends on how Lee looks against Barboza, if he wins.
