    Not saying one way or another if Conor should get a crack at Khabib once more, but they are close to giving Aldo a title shot who is 0-2 in his last two, and 0-1 in the BW division. Also Romero who is 1-3 in his last 4 and getting a title shot off a loss.

    Many example too in the past, Frankie getting a crack at Aldo at 145 after never fighting in the division and coming off a loss.

    If you're gonna bash Dana White and UFC for trying to book a Conor/Khabib rematch that would be one of the biggest fights the UFC can make (it's business at the end of the day) then you gotta do the same for Yoel and Aldo getting title shots too.

    Add gus to the list too but the haters will only hear and see Conor so it's a moot point.

    Romero, Aldo, Gus, all given freebies coming off Ls. At least Aldo has the distinction of being an all time great fw but yoel or gus? Just entertaining contenders. Conor has the distinction of being a former two weight champ and at least put on a showcase tune up fight

    That's not what I am saying, but there is way more unwarranted title shots going on currently and in the past. Yea Cody Garbrandt deserved a rematch with TJ after getting knocked out cold, the same with Stipe in the DC rematch, just to name a few.

    It's a business at the end of the day, the UFC has showed us that many times past and present.

    Conor was dominated by Khabib and has done nothing to show he's improved, he deserves a rematch less than either deserve a title fight.

    None of those guys should be getting title shots, and I’m big fans of 2 of those fighters. In Yoel’s case the champ wants to fight him and Costa isn’t ready yet, so it’s not that bad. Cejudo wants to fight Aldo but there are 2 contenders in Yan and Sterling who should be fighting for the belt before him.

    Agree I think that's an important detail to remember with the Romero fight, he's stepping in while Costa is out. Aldo getting a TS is ridiculous.

    People’s hatred on here really clouds their judgment and common sense, they get worked up over an athlete who doesn’t even know they exist

    Conor, Aldo and Romero DO NOT deserve titleshots.

    Conor getting a titleshot makes more sense than Aldo or Romero though, easily.

    That's really the point, if people are gonna bitch about Dana trying to give Conor a rematch then they should bitch more about Romero and Aldo getting one.

    Well to be fair Aldo wouldn't be getting a rematch nor would Yoel and Aldo is coming off a "loss" most felt he won and Yoel is coming off a close loss against the guy who would be fighting for the title had he not been injured.

    On top of that both are getting shots in the division they actually compete in after putting in the work doing the hardest part of their jobs cutting down to make the weight instead of avoiding doing so because it's easier.

    They also beat top contenders in those divisions and both Champions want the fights because they see them as great fights for their legacies against tough match ups, unlike Khabib.

    Is that enough justification for you or should I address the Frankie situation too?

    Sure. Give him one at 170 where he last won. If not, shut the fuck up.

    Anyone that thinks Aldo or Romero deserve titleshots is just some silly, illogical fanboy. There is zero logic to them getting titleshots other than "I'm a fan of that guy".

    Regardless of what we think, judges gave that win to Moraes. It was very close too not a complete robbery or something. Regardless Aldo hasn't won a fight at BW yet but he still should get a title shot? give Aldo another BW fight and let him get a win first. Plus there is other guys in that division that deserve the title shot over Aldo regardless if you think he won or not.

    You should address the Frankie part too, Frankie was in close fights with Ben Henderson at 155, zero fights at 145 but yet he jumps right into the division to fight Aldo?

    Conor getting a title shot wont be worse than those mentioned above.

    Romero didn't "get" a title shot exactly. He stepped in as a replacement for Eraser who got injured, it was easy to make since Israel has called him out before. Unless you think it's better to cancel the main event completely...
