    I don't see it happening. Not that i'd say he doesn't deserve it. He probably does given that tonys out and eddie apparently is on the last fight of his contract. I just can't imagine it. Khabib wants to fight near the end of the year and I just see the Conor vs Khabib fight somehow coming to fruition. There's too much interest and money on the table. Even if some people are correct that Conor knows he's gonna lose to Khabib he basically showed up to do an expensive job to Floyd so...eh..money talks. I don't see his punishment being severe.

    Not yet I think he needs another top 5 win or so. It's still Furguson's turn next.

    Disagree on Lee, he looked good against Ferguson until he gassed with Staph. I think if he beats Barboza, him and Dustin should fight as next challenger.

    I won't fault you for that opinion but imo Lee never earned the first shot. If he gets one then I won't complain. I think Khabib beats him pretty soundly. Still, I think Dustin deserves it more.

    If that's the case & no Mcgregor either then i wouldn't mind seeing Khabib vs Dustin.

    Yes, but only because Conor and Tony are out of the mix and Eddie has just been sitting on his butt.

    Khabib's fighting on the MSG card in November. If Conor nor Tony can make it, they're not wasting that headliner on Dustin or Eddie. Max or Ortega will get it.

    Eddie doesn't want it.

    Conor is in legal red tape.

    Tony is recovering from his stunt role in Saw 7.

    No he didn't. With the current picture at LW, I think he is still 2-3 fights away.

    I really think a rematch vs Eddie Alvarez should be booked. If he manages to win that fight, I think a fight with Ferguson when he heals up should earn him a well deserved title shot.

    Yeah. Fuck it. Why not.

    End of the day, dude went to war and triumphed, then used his moment to asked for the very best guy in the world.

    No tweetbooking or facetagrams. No dollie throwing. Just making his intentions known in no uncertain terms.

    Give that man his fight.
