    Hopefully not, it would be another classic Khabib beat down, at least get Alvarez in there for even a little bit of a challenge.

    Got to go with this. Assuming Ferg is out a year and Conor doesn't come back, both Dustin and Eddie have a good case for a TS. Since Khabib isn't gonna fight until the fall, book Poirier/Alvarez 2 for the summer. Would be another Just Bleed war. Maybe July in UFC 226 or some FOX card? Winner fights Khabib in November in MSG.

    At least Dustin had the excuse of a weight cut. Eddie had 2 rounds and did just as much as Dustin. Jack shit.

    This Dustin Diamond guy just beat a guy called Justin, who was ranked in the Top 10 why? Justin's now 1-2 in the UFC, and headed for a life with CTE.

    Other than that, has Dustin ever beat a Top 10 LW?

    Let's face it, the LW rankings, with these two bozos at 5 and 6, is a joke of a division.

    So NO, no title shot for that guy from Saved By The Bell.

    Eddie vs Porier title shot or Porier vs Lee-Barboza winner for title shot.

    Or Porier vs Khabib, Eddie vs Lee-Barboza winner, JG vs Lee-Barboza loser.

    Khabib mauls him. Conor KO’s him. Ferg vs Poirier would be a good fight but I would still take Ferg

    How was Eddies win more impressive he took a beating then pulled out a win, Poirier stopped Justin a round earlier without sustaining half as much damage.

    Conor
    Tony
    Eddie

    Dustin is the 4th guy in line but Tony is injured for who knows how long and who knows what Conor's plans are...

    So if Khabib wants to fight in a few months and Eddie says no or is booked it could very well go to Dustin.

    Hmmm.. Man, I don't WANT to say Kevin Lee, but if he beats Edson, it is an interesting matchup. Kevin has been calling Khabib out, so let's see him put his money where his mouth is

    Going completely against who I would normally choose and picking Kevin Lee here just because the face offs, build up, etc would be fun and am interested to see how Kevin's wrestling would play into things
