    lets say hypothetically.... khabib becomes undisputed LW champ in April

    i'm pulling for Tony... and i also believe Khabib is being protected with match ups that favor him...

    who do you want to see khabib defend his belt against first?

    i for one believe Gaethje or Lee should fight for the belt next after they both win their fights...

    I see alvarez & mcgregor getting ragdolled by khabib personally....

    He'll defend against Artem in Russia. That's why Artem is on the NY Card, to build the rivalry! The Eagle vs The Hammer.

    They’ll feed him the easiest most protected matchup they can give him, Conor

    They'll keep Lee away from Khabib for as long as possible.

    Conor does what he wants. I don't think you understand the meaning of "feed him".

    I seriously hope not. He is a true manlet and couldn't even take Conor down

    Alvarez should never get a title shot again.

    I would love that. I think Alvarez and Lee are khabib's worst matchups.

    I only believe that he is protected if they offer him Conor

    Conor in Russia would be the most logical choice , if not then Alveraz would be the second best choice sadly.

    If Lee manages to talk himself into a title shot with Khabib if Khabib wins the belt, I don't think he wins against Khabib. For that to even happen, he needs to not get his legs and head kicked off by Barboza.

    If Khabib wins the belt then he will most likely defend, which means he should be fighting the top guys. That would mean there is no reason to cry. I don't see him flat out hiding like Conor "Iron Lady" Mcgregor.

    And his fans seem to love him even though he is no longer fighting. Conor fans seem to be fans of Conor and fight fans are fans of the sport.

    If Lee beats Barboza and finishes him, he may get the next title shot. If Lee gets beat, then maybe Alvarez. But could see Alvarez fighting Dustin next in a rematch, if Dustin beats Justin.. especially if Lee wins vs Barboza.
