    According to Poirier, Nurmagomedov’s manager reached out to him to express interest in the showdown, telling “The Diamond” that he is indeed next in line for “The Eagle.”

    “I think it’s pretty good chances, Tony’s timeline is nine months and we got to see if Conor comes back, maybe he doesn’t. Khabib’s manager reached out to me and told me I’m the next guy in line and they want to fight me,” revealed Poirier on The MMA Hour, saying Russia could be a landing spot for Khabib’s first-ever title defense.

    Poirier has done good recently and is a nice guy so I have no problems with this.

    No please no

    Do we really want to waste a Khabib fight on Poirier?

    If Conor keeps ducking and Ferg is out that long, then this is the matchup to make. Who should Eddie fight, though?

    It'd be my third pic. However, I don't know how long Tony's out for or Conor for that matter.

    If we can't have Ferguson or Conor vs Khabib, then this is a perfectly reasonable option.

    I wouldn't mind Poirier Vs Ferg if they manage to make Conor fight Khabib.

    If not Conor, put Eddie Vs Khabib.

    Your boy trying to price himself out of fights, and doing stupid shit so he can duck longer. Wants to be P4P champion over 700 days without fighting

    If Tony is on a 9 month recovery and Conor is still being a diva then yes. As he is the most deserving available guy and puts on great fights. Alvarez and khabib are his best 2 options for fights currently with Tony out. And I don't see them doing the Eddie rematch now

    Man Khabib smokes Dustin. Personally I wanna see Dustin and Eddie run it back and the winner get a TS. If at all possilble the fight to make is clearly Conor/Khabib prob near the end of the year. If not possible and If Kevin smokes Edson i actually wouldn’t mind seeing him get the shot

    No shit.. easy fight and easy defense... low PPV.

    If Conor doesn't take the fight then give it to Lee if he wins next weekend.. maybe he stuffs some TD's or even gets them that will be interesting. (Tony out at least one year)

    Dustin deserves the fight more, but Lee is the better matchup
