    I feel like seeing something new.

    Conor is out of the picture, Ferguson unfortunately is injured pretty badly.

    Lee just lost his last fight which happens to have been a title shot, Alvarez is 1-0 (1) in his last 2 after taking one of the most embarrassingly L's you'll ever see. Barboza also just got dominated in his last fight.

    Poirier is hot right now and is riding some momentum. He just slept Gaethje and doesn't have the horrible overhanging cloud like Alvarez does. I would love to see Poirier/Alvarez 2, but who will Khabib fight then?

    Yeah he can. He should've won their fight by DQ anyway.

    Uh...canner was allowed to take a year and a half off for no other reason than to avoid the competition. I think a couple of months off for whatever reason, including religious holiday/observance/celebration, what have you, is perfectly fine considering he just fought a few weeks ago and most of the top contenders are m.i.a. or still sorting the division out.

    Poirier should fight the winner of Lee /Barboza. The winner of those 3 gets a shot. In the meantime, obviously Khabib /Connor or more likely Khabib vs Alvarez. Alvarez for is great wrestling and if no one wants to fight Khabib as so often happens.....Justin. Again a great wrestler, hard for anyone to take down and if Khabib can’t get him down it would sure be entertaining!

    Exceptional circumstances with Conor, there was the whole Mayweather thing for one and also the fact that the McGregor is bigger than the UFC so the same rules don't to him as they do to regular more expendable fighters. Khabib has not earned the right to special treatment especially given his pretty poor fight per year ratio in his career so far. Religion should not be used as a reason to avoid defending a belt, sets a dangerous precedent.

    Oh he should've "won"? Well clearly he's the better fighter then, whether it was while Eddie was fucking him up or not

    No. Every eliminator fight involving Alvarez should be a no.
