There seems to be an agreement on the LW title situation: a.) Poirier deserves a title-shot more than Lee based on his winning streak, but Khabib vs. Poirier would be less interesting than Khabib vs. Lee and inversely b.) Lee would be a more interesting match-up for Khabib than Poirier, but is less deserving based on his resume So how do you go about that in this particular case as well as in general? Do you go for pure merit or for what get's people more excited? Does the interest in a Khabib/Lee fight leapfrog Poirier's accomplishments? All under the assumption that Conor doesn't fight in 2018 and Ferguson can't until 2019. So please no "fight Tony!!!" posts, we all get that in theory he would be the most deserving/exciting option.
