    Both fighters have already expressed interest in this idea, with Khabib saying he is eyeing a drop to 145 after he wins the belt:



    and Ferguson a rise to 170:


    If McGregor returns, I'd assume that would be the next fight to make for the victor. If not, there are still plenty of contenders at 155 and even a potential Holloway clash in the future.

    What would you guys rather see for the winner of this epic clash - a run at another belt or defences at 155?
    I'd personally like to see a few defences first - Khabib vs Lee, Tony vs Edson 2, etc etc... <{JustBleed}>

    I don't see Khabib going up any time soon. They just signed his cousin, who's 170.

    They should stay at 155 and leave no doubt to the majority that they are the greatest LW(s) of all time.

    If either Tony or Khabib chose another weight class as there first fight after winning the title I think I'd have to take a break from UFC events for a while.

    Habibi makes weight once a year if he’s lucky and all of a sudden he’s good to drop to 145? lol

    Only way khabib would make 145 is if he amputated His left leg

    The trilogy might happen, neither of them are big enough for 170. We could have a Wonderboy vs Tyron situation where the loser ends up defending and the champ gets to sit back and pick his nose

    No, they should stay put and defend their friggin title, at least for long enough to clean out the division, and then MAYBE move up after VACATING the title.
