    Conor has no business fighting for a title. This gets the Diaz Bros exposure right in time for Nick's comeback, and lets the UFC get their payoff while keeping their title safe from Conorrhea. They can then bank it and play harder ball in negotiations.

    I like it.

    Yeah, two super-unpopular boring fighters with no followers.

    LOL

    Holds no meaning to the sport right now but it would be entertaining.

    I would not mind it happening anymore.

    This fight would represent everything that is wrong with modern era MMA, as did the rematch.

    Can we have meaningful fights please?

    There is no way that it would be anything other than this, sadly. The Conor casuals love his press conferences (TBF, they are interesting) and the UFC will have to make anything with Conor the main event.

    i dont think theres ever a bad time for this fight but there are so many more important and better fights id rather see...
    nate would be a good one to keep in the back pocket after mcg has lost a cpl times and the hype is waining.
    cash out retirement fight.

    aldo rematch to avenge first loss and demolition ?
    holloway avenging his loss and lineal champ vs champ ?
    fergy contendor fight as interim vs lineal champ ?
    khabib vs mcg as the true undisputed lw champ ?
    edgar as the fw who never got his chance and mcg to avenge the haters who claim he ducked edgar as edgar was the only decent fw he didnt fight in his short 2.5yr sprint through the division ?

    just a few.

    True. Both irrelevant in any division and need each other to get what their primary goal is....money.

    Now you're being just a hater of those two it seems.

    They both are fighters in the UFC roster. There is no reason for them not to fight, and there is no reason for them not to fight each other.

    maybe you should learn what 'lineal champion' means... he is the lineal champ of fw and lw whether you like it or not lol.
    as for not being a fw - he has 7 fights at fw, 1 at lw and 2 at ww - what weight class is he then :s

    McGregor shouldn't be able to duck the dangerous LW's he hasn't faced yet. If he didn't take time off for his baby and boxing, he would have lost a few times at LW.

    "lineal" champ is meaninless BS - de facto he's not a champ so these fights are irrelevant.

    And his last FW fight was 3 years ago - and I'm pretty sure he's only getting fatter

    You're so mad at him that even now, that he doesn't have a title so doesn't have title related obligations, you want him to be forced to fight contenders...
