    Dana said Connor called and wanted a rematch. So Dana was down for it and this is the UFC, Connor gets any fight he wants.

    Why is Connor talking this “next in line” crap? Next in line is whoever he wants.

    Sounds like someone is scared to say khabib?

    Because Khabib ignored the rematch offer and is already planning his next match with Tony, GSP or whoever it is.

    Maybe he realized he needs a warmup. Even highest level boxers like Fury did a two fight warm up before coming back.


    Not saying Conor could beat Khabib - I think khabib wins 19/20 times but Conor still should be in fine form when he loses.

    Khabib said no already unless Conor wants to beg immediate rematch is not happening. Khabib turned down 15 million for the rematch.

    When conor says next in line he means a favorable match up of his choosing.

    Conor asking for an immediate rematch: "STFU and get in line, loser!"
    Conor saying that he would take a warm up fight: "LOL he scared, what a loser, man up and fight Khabib!"

    I'm a fan, but he definitely needs to build back some momentum before a rematch.

    He wants to take some time off to regroup and knows Khabib wants gsp, so after that fight and gsp drops the belt again Khabib will be next in line for a title shot.

    So he’s long gaming the rematch.

    as already menrioned connor needs another win agianst a ranked opponent. lets be real here, if conor plans on a rematch he needs some momentum. 2 wins could setup a rematch plus i perdonally am not all that interested in an immediate rematch anyway.

    id rather khabib dight tony. who knows maybe khabib loses his next few fights anyway conor loses interest in a rematch.

    if khabib loses too tony then i think the ufc will set up a gaethje fight.
