Are you guys ok with Nate Diaz replacing Khabib against Conor when the Russian gets injured?

    I'd rather have the much better version of Nate Diaz (Ferguson) fill in if that were to happen. Don't know if Ferg matches up better with Conor on the feet though, because his striking defense is much worse than Nate's.

    Yes, because I'm 99.9% sure that exactly what's gonna happen.

    I don't. Then when Conor slaughters Tony we have to hear the excuses about how Tony wasn't prepared, and Conor still hasn't beaten a legitimate fighter legitimately.

    That'll be Khabib's 3rd fight in less than a year, and Conor's first in 2 years. What happened to Conor needing time off to not stress out his gf while she's pregnant? Doesn't seem to mind now that he doesn't have a title to defend.

    Nate already beat him twice. No need to fight him again

    Mods need to make this a bet, because I'm willing to put all my sherdog money on this exact scenario.

    Actually, I think Conor just might starch Ferguson.

    I think Nate matches better because of his chin and Khabib will most likely pull out, again...

    GSP already confirmed Dana told him he's the alternate if either pulls out from the fight.

    I just don’t picture it being competitive unless GSP’s knee is out of commission. It’s true he’s had surgery or some kind of work done but his doubles aren’t exactly what they used to be. If he’s even 75% of his former self, it would be boring.

    I prefer Khabib or Nate. Or Ferg.

    Those fights have the potential for back and forth action.
