    If Barboza wins then go for Dustin because we've already seen that fight. I implied that in my post by focusing only on Kevin.

    Also from the interview it seems that they are aiming for the Dustin fight and completely ignoring Kevin Lee..

    stop saying "run it back". so stupid. where'd you get that from, wonderboy? that guy has the worst personality ever.

    no one wants to see eddie vs dustin again, eddie was getting destroyed then landed illegal knees.

    Makes perfect sense to me. Ferguson is going to be out for an extended period and Conor is doing whatever, but it certainly isn't fighting.

    Well in fairness Dustin has a nice fight win streak while Lee would be on a 1 fight streak against a guy Khabib already destroyed assuming he wins. Plus Lee himself said give him a year and he would be ready to fight Khabib for the title in his latest interview with Ariel.

    Lee has done nothing of note except lose to Tony. Just because he took him down doesn't imply he's better than Eddie or Poirier.

    If khabib is ducking then why won't Conor fight? Who else is there w Tony out, and Lee already booked to fight barboza. Eddie? He's the o ly other option I see active and not busy. Pretty sure khabib is not ducking anyone. He was ready for Ferguson and is ready if Conor actually wants to fight. I have no issue w poirier fighting I'df it keeps the division active. Better that who Conor has fought recently.. Like no one. I know he beat him earlier in career and probably would again but its pointless to even think of Conor when he hasn't fought in so long and doesn't appear to be moving towards a fight soon. I was hoping for Sept conor/khabib. Doubt Conor will fight tho.

    I have no problem with Khabib fighting Dustin.

    IMO his next match is Conor in Sept.

    The rest was just me saying why I dont like the dude and exposing the "he fights smaller fighters" hypocrisy.

    Ferg wont be able to grapple safely no earlier than 8-9 months. And then he has to fight #6-10 fighter for a title shot. So add another 3-4 months. Thats 1 year. Khabib wants to return in November and Poirier doesnt want to rematch Eddie he says he wants the gold asap.

    Conor is still hiding and Tony is injured. You can't be that out of the loop.

    Then who would you have Khabib fight? Or do you want him on the sidelines with Conor and tony?
