    He is going to like making weight at LW or WW. Also no need to go back to FW just to fight Edgar.

    He is creating his own division.

    He can't hold onto the belt if hes not defending it. I would not be surprised he gave it up if he won another title. He beaten most of the top 5 he could easily fight Edgar at 155 as a non title fight or for the 155 belt, if Conor won that?

    True, he could fight Edgar at LW. Makes sense if he actually beat RDA so he doesn't have to cut down to FW.

    He is in the Conor division, weight is irrelevant.

    IMO... I don't see how he can hold the FW belt but not defend it his next fight. Win a belt, then immediately have two fights at weights other than your undefended title ? That's what it would be. This LW title fight fell through. It happens. Fight Nate, then defend or vacate. This was the argument of those that didn't want a two weight fighter holding belts. Seems pretty fuckin valid right now.

    I think Conor vs Lawler at UFC 200 has some real legs if he destroys Diaz. Then Conor can say I can hang in at WW and go for glory vs Lawler. This way he can go for two weight Champ and more impressive is the weights are a lot different.

    Conor doesn't seem keen on fighting RDA now, he might make up in his mind that RDA faked an injury and that he can't trust RDA to fight at UFC 200.

    I understand the reason for the Conor hype train. Conor is a great fighter and belongs at LW. There is just no way he can beat Lawler. Lawler hits like a monster compared to Conor.

    I don't think he has any intention of ever making that weight cut again

    If he says that though they will take his belt from him so he isn't about to do that

    The fact that he is cutting weight right now to fight at 170 should put his FW run into perspective.

    Plenty of fighters have won a belt. But its the legends that have held onto it defense after defense after defense that are impressive.

    And for those saying he's already cleared out the division: not as champ he hasn't.

    So what if he holds up FW title? No one can beat him there. What is the point of winning a title if Conor would just go back and get it back? Hold up what? If Conor fights at FW he is the top dog. That is it.
