    If he beats max gets the belt..

    Theres nothing left at bw 145 for him ... Fight rematches wait for zabit or yair..

    He needs to move up to 155 and fight khabib foreal thoughts?

    that depends on how the fight goes if he makes it look easy against Max then yea agreed he should move up to 155 and challenge someone top 5 first but if it's a close back and forth fight then he needs to stay at 145 and defend the belt.

    Depends on how he beats Max. Ortega-Aldo might be interesting too and there will always be new challengers... Plus Khabib has enough challengers at 155

    He'll have to deal with TJ when he comes for that triple belt fight

    TJ only switches weight class when he can pick on smaller fighters.

    Didn't seem to interested when people proposed he fight Holloway. Tbh tho I think fighting g guys that easily could be good sized lightweights might be too much of a stretch for TJ regardless of how skilled he is.

    How is never defending a belt mean there is nothing left to do? He has never faced Aldo, Mendes, Stephens, Bektic, Yair, Zabit, Jung and Frankie took a late replacement fight with him and could easily earn a rematch. Why does Ortega deserve to jump the long line at LW?

    I'm sure there will be a rematch if Max loses. Aldo is kinda stuck in this weird spot because he got destroyed by Max twice, but holds wins over Stephens, Zombie, Edgar (x2) and Mendes (x2) so do you really give him a title shot against Ortega if he were to win the belt? If Ortega wins it makes sense to run it back while Yair (who is facing a long layoff) and Zabit shine a bit in the division and take on top 5 talent.

    Wtf are you talking about? The guy just won his belt back and sought a bout out of his class once. KZ gets hit with backwards up elbows all the time! See what I did there?

    i really hope he gets that belt.

    he has already beat alot of the guys, moiacno, frankie, cub..he could fight aldo but he would demolish him.

    i wanna see him at lw after like 2 more fights if he beats max.

    Moicano/Bektic winner would be very deserving. As would Mendes/Volkanovski winner. Not to mention he hasn't beat Aldo, Yair, or Zabit.

    I for one would love to see Ortega/Moicano 2 for the belt, but I think Max beats Ortega by keeping it on the feet and winning on volume & toughness.

    Your work at FW is not done until you have Aldo’s name on your resume. Hasn’t fought mendes either...chill on the “there’s nothing left at FW” talk until the guys actually wins and defends the belt.

    Chadwick “mini” Mendes would be an interesting fight.

    I think he has the frame to go up to fight Khabib. He is sandbagging his height. They have him listed 2-3 inches shorter than what he really is.

    You don't really believe the UFC is paying TJ a Fnck load of money. He sure as hell won't be jumping up to fight Max or Ortega. He won't even defend his BW title against guys his own size FFS If he goes to Flyweight he should have to vacate his belt if he loses. If Cejudo beats him then it should be Cejudo vs Cruz for the Vacant BW title. TJ doesn't put it on the line if he can avoid it.
