    All three of them have 2 top ten wins and a tons of beatings on cans. The exception is that Conor looked more impressive. No one complained about Chad's and Lamas' last run to the title: both beat 1 top ten guy.

    In summary, looking at their entire UFC career:

    Conor has 2 top ten wins (#6 Poirier and #10 Siver)
    Chad has 2 top ten wins (#4 Cub Swanson and #8 Niki Lentz)
    Lamas has 2 top ten wins (#4 Cub Swanson and #7 Bermudez)

    Don't get the point of the thread is anyone complaining about him getting a shot? He'll lose then have to face guys like Frankie, Chad, and Lamas soon enough.

    Don't waste your time. People would rather see Aldo rematch the top 5 again to maintain status quo than admit that this is not only the best fight in the division, but probably the best fight in any division on the horizon.

    Yeah there are tons of people complaining so I made this thread out of frustration.

    That said, he is not going to lose to Aldo. May Conor bless your soul

    Chad had the most tools against Aldo, still does, and Aldo still outclassed him.

    Aldo still wins, doesn't matter how proven.

    Chad, Lamas, and Cub all have superior resumes in comparison to Conor McGregor.

    Not sure of his ranking at the time, but Aldo was set to fight Koch who Lamas also beat.

    Well those guys all fought people who could be bad style matchups for them, Conor hasn't. Edgar deserves the shot, but I have no problem with the UFC doing this for business. Conor will have to fight Aldo and probably Edgar and a few of the others at some point no matter what happens in this next fight, so we'll know what he's made of sooner or later.
