    I think they should let them fight. Dustin deserves it. It's time to see two professionals compete for the title

    Khabib is terrified of other wrestlers, wants nothing to do with Alvarez who already beat Poirier and Gaethje.

    Barboza? They never met and it's a fun matchup. It' No. 4 vs. No. 3 - winner for TS.

    Conor is ducking Khabib. No words from him since the bus attack.
    Ferguson is out for 1 year due to injury.
    Logical match up is Poirier.

    Khabib is ducking no one.

    Khabib still yet to beat a top 5 ranked guy and people crying this would be pointless.

    What a disaster. Lee's first round against Ferguson + possible Barboza win > Poiriers resume

    Poirier wouldn't be a bad option, I personally would rather see Lee get the next shot IF he gets past barboza tho. Then have Eddie and dustin run it back to decide the next contender after Khabib vs Lee.

    That is all assuming Kevin beats barboza tho, and of course that Conor still isn't ready to come back because if he is then he leapfrogs everyone since he is the true champ.

    Book it. Will Khabib be willing to start camp immediately after Ramadan ends? Maybe Mcgregor will get his act together if they proceed without him. I respect certain things about him but if he won't fight fuck em'.

    If Kevin wins give him Eddie and the winner of that next up. If Edson gets it done give him Felder, Pettis, or Vick and next up if he gets the W. Tired if unwarranted rematches and sick of divisions being held up. Keep the shit moving.

    Ramadan is mid May to mid June, Russia fight card is September. Not a problem.

    Why would Eddie get the shot over Dustion, their fight was a NC. That should be the next fight for either, winner faces Khabib if Tony isn't ready.

    You Khabib haters make me laugh.

    Who's he supposed to face next exactly ? Poirier is 8-1 at LW and is coming off a big win over Gaethje.

    Conor and Tony won't fight until 2019 for sure. So Khabib just wait huh ?

    Funny people accusing khabib of ducking by fighting a top contender. Tony is injured, and conor gets that fight if he decides to just come back, which for some reason he still hasn't done. This fight makes the most sense.

    What a surprise...

    Kanbib wants a fighter outside the top 3 again.

    It should be Alvarez, not Poirier. Either way, Khabib is in deep shit if he's unable to finish the fight in 3 rounds.

    Poirier's done enough and he wants it, is willing to fight all comers, which means a lot, even if it's not the best match-up. This Tony fight won't happen anytime soon (or ever) and Conor's got other problems, so Dustin should get it.
