    Lee is the better MMA fighter bit Dustin maybe a better resume. Seriously doubt Khabib wants,a fighter like Lee in his first defense he wants strikers like Conor or Dustin.

    I think Poirier deserves it more especially now that Lee failed to make weight against Barboza, but damn Lee vs Khabib seems like such an interesting match up now!

    Lee is the better fight to make due to his potential ability to neutralize khabibs wrestling

    Lee deserves it more and also is very likely to beat Khabib.

    However, there is no way Khabib wants to fight Lee for his first (and possibly only) title defense.

    Khabib 100% goes for someone like Poirier because to get a comfortable title defense stat pad.

    Poieir fights Khabib. Meanwhile let Lee fight Eddie and the winner gets the TS. Simple.

    Poirier.
    No way Lee should get a title shot after missing weight.
    Lee should fight someone like Eddie.
    Having Poirier fighting Lee is just stupid, Khabib should get a fight as soon as possible.

    kevin lee had 2 times in a row problems with making weight.
    poirier deserves it more.

    kevin lee should fight against eddie alvarez for the next contender spot.

    I want to say Lee, but the fact that he missed weight against Barboza hurts his case. He has a better streak than Poirer, and I say that, because I'm ignoring Lee's loss to Ferguson. Ferguson deserves it more than both, but since he is out of the picture, it goes to the next guy in line, which is Lee since he was the guy fighting for the interim belt against Ferg. Also, in terms of match ups, I see Poirer essentially as another lamb to the slaughter for Khabib, with Lee actually being able to put up an entertaining and competitive fight.

    Honestly, I'd say Alvarez, Poirer, or Lee are interchangeable for a #1 Contender fight.

    On what planet does lee deserve a title shot? He didn't make weight, he's overrated, and he's beat no-one. Why people think he could nullify the best grappler at 155 baffles me. Lee will lose to tony (who isn't great), al, dustin. Only fights that are 50/50 for him are against eddie & gathe because they are so hittable.

    Lee is the better fighter IMO but Poirier has the better streak, could go either way on this. Whoever doesn't get the shot fights THE UNDERGROUND KING for the next one pls!

    Dana will have them fight each other. They'll rebook Khabib/Ferg or pretend Khabib/Conor is going to happen knowing that they'll never actually happen and Khabib gets his standard 9+ months off.

    Khabib will fight after Ramadan and Ferguson will be fit.

    I want to see Khabib fight Lee or Alvarez most cause i think they are the only 2 that cause Khabib any problems. Khabib will do the same to Poirier as he has done to Barboza, Johnson etc..... Which is exactly why i think UFC will give him Dustin next and make Lee vs Alvarez. They will ultimately want that Khabib vs Conor fight now and will give Khabib the lower risk fight next
