    If were them, I'd sit as long as Conor and force Suge White to have to fight one of them next without jeopardizing their place in line. And when I say Aldo, I mean challenge him at 155. There's an interim champ anyway so Holloway could defend it once and wait to see if Aldo gets Conor or not.

    Khabib doesn't realize that the UFC is probably offering big money to fight again in the hopes he loses. Make no mistake, they wanna protect their boy. They want the easiest fight possible for him and will pull all stops to make it happen. So hope all 3 come to their senses and hold out.

    Dana probably not keen on Conor vs Khabib, especially after the Jonhson rape.

    I agree with you TS but Khabib and Ferg genuinely want to fight each other to establish who is the true #1 contender. I can respect that.

    Really starting to look that ^^^^ way Conor now has a bit of a comfort zone with Nate that's why his camp and Conor keep dropping his name. Conor is in between a Rock and a Hard place NEW LW champ with two real contenders in the wings. Or the sneak away option dog whistle Nate for another fight and delegitimize himself further by taking a comfort fight.

    Connor doesn't have anywhere to hide, not even saying he is hiding. He will defend at 155 or challenge for 170, if he takes the diaz fight now I'll truly believe he is afraid though. Unless he plans on retiring or making this insane move to boxing he will be taking on serious contenders.

    We all know Dana has told Khabib he'll get a shot at the title and McGregor, should he beat Ferguson.. Just like he told Aldo he'd get the same, should he beat Edgar.

    TS actually has a great point

    Khabib deserves shot at 155
    Aldo deserves shot at 145, arguably 155
    Holloway deserves shot- but only if Aldo is injured as Aldo has the higher ranking/belt/first in line whatever
    Ferguson also deserves shot at 155 if any of those fights dont happen

    Literally, when Conor comes back, if Khabib/Tony are tied up/not ready to fight, and Aldo/Holloway are tied up, then whats left?

    Nate fucking Diaz - nobody wants that

    if even 2 of these 4 guys wait, Conors gonna have to face 1 and then he's fucked unless he somehow lucks out and gets Holloway lol

    You are right TS. They are letting themselves get played. Especially Aldo and Nurmy. They don't even need to money to fight. They have said it.
