    This is what we need man. What the hell.

    Fireworks. Does the ufc not want money?

    Doesn’t Nate want money?

    3 million PPV buys combined.

    Just one rough weight cut involved.

    Conor might just sign up for a fight against Nate and ruin the Nate/Masvidal thing we want.

    Nate would accept because it's more $$$ and the UFC would oblige because it gets Conor fighting again.

    As far as the shot against Khabib -- Khabib's only looking for legacy fights right now.

    That means Dustin, Tony Ferguson, GSP, and possibly a WW superfight.

    Tony should be cut out of the title conversation for now. He had his chances.

    win a few fights work back up the top 10 ranking but nate said he at 170 now.

    come on nate last win at 155 was vs gray maynard. that not saying much at all.

    Nate doesn't want to fight Khabib. He is back for exciting winnable matchups.

    Conor made Nate a big draw. It doesn't matter who Nate fights....hes getting paid. that's all he cares about. Nick could come back and cherry pick some good matchups and make good money too.

    Diaz v. McConor at 155 doesn't sell any more ppvs than at 165 or 170, so why stipulate 155? nate's done with 155 anyway. if the two want to make money, let them make money and sell the ppv at the higher weight.

    If he beat Nate I'll accept to give him Islam makachev, they look the same anyway.
    (And he will get his ass kicked again)

    Is it bots or UFC employees babble this shit on? If you keep saying something stupid all the time, it loses it's sting and people don't react as violent the 10th time.

    On a losing streak, not doing anything of note - unless you're okay with him assaulting people - yeah that seems like he should be rewarded with another fast track to a title shot.

    Would rather see the trilogy fight be for the title. How epic....but highly unlikely.

    Ferg needs his shot first. Nothing else matters.

    I am a Kabibi fan but not giving TFerg the next fight is ridiculous. This is the best match up in all of MMA and would be the most anticipated.
