Let me start off by saying Conor was a real 145 lb champion. He beat all the up and coming fighters and the top contenders to earn a title shot, then he wiped the mat with Jose in 13 seconds. He definitely earned his belt at 145. But that is where his greatness ends and Conor's special treatment begins. In the 155 division - he was choked by fan favorite journeyman Nate Diaz. But somehow, winning a decision rematch against Diaz earned him a title shot with a 1-1 record in the 155 division. Special Treatment. Conor beats Eddie Alvarez, gets the 155lb belt and tells the world he's the first simultaneous champ: despite never defending his 145 belt. At this point the hype train moving full steam ahead. In his first title defense he loses by choke again to the real 155 GOAT Khabib, but after beating another fan favorite journeyman in Donald Cerrone, the UFC is claiming Conor should get another title shot. More Special Treatment. That being said - in an ideal world without special treatment, who do you think Conor should fight and beat to earn a title shot at 155? - Dustin Poirer - Justin Gatheje - Beniel Dariush - Winner of Kevin Lee vs Do Bronx? - Winner of Dan hooker vs Paul Felder? - Loser of T.Ferg vs Khabib?
