    Maybe maybe not but Conor doesn't have the touch of death at lw that he had at fw,there's a formula to beat him conor has bad cardio.

    The build-up to Conor vs. Tony would be hysterical. So many cringe-worthy lines from both sides, but the back-and-forth would be ridiculous.

    Why should Al or Dustin be put on the back burner when they have been more active and won more at 155 than CONnor

    JOKE

    No. No it shouldn’t be.

    How many wins has Dustin got at 155? Oh a lot more than Conor? Yeh and he’s on a win streak? Yeh let’s go with Dustin.

    Why ? I mean seeing Conor get fucked up would be nice but this won't be competitive, Tony vs Iaquinta pt Max would be way more interesting

    watched the first ever ufc live. but it that way lol. The guy hasn't won a fight since 2016 man. think about it. His record in the ufc at LW isn't impressive. Theres absolutely zero reason for him to be getting a title shot off getting absolutely embarrassed in his last fight besides name value. But when you think of deserving, hes no wheres near the top of the list at 155 in the ufc to be fighting for a title.
    Change my mind....

    Conor hasn't won a fight since 2016 got absolutely embarrassed in his last fight, and doesn't even have a winning record at LW in the ufc. Him getting a shot would be worse than randy coming back to Sylvia in my opinion. There has been other bad ones as well for sure, but this would have to be up there, if not the most undeserving.
    Name value though, I get it. business side he sells fights. but in terms of deserving, hasn't won a fight in the division in 3 years, doesn't have a winning record in the division, and his last fight was one of the most lopsided title fights in some time at LW. its pretty bad man lol

    LMAO! Well done. I think at this point Conor is ducking everyone in the top 10 except his scheduled opponent according to his haters.

    Remind me again why Conor deserves an interim title shot? He’s 1-1 in the division, finished in 2 of his last 4 bouts, and was soundly beaten by the current champion just a few months ago. Poirier deserves it more. Stop giving McGregor unwarranted opportunities, let him fight back into contention.

    Tony comes to the presser dancing with headphones on. Proceeds to confuse the fuck out of Conor and drops at least 30 quotable lines.

    I dont think you grasped the entire point of my post. No matter who McGregor fights or is rumored to fight there are haters to say , "it's because hes scared to fight _________." The post I was responding to did that and he filled in the blank with someone CM has already fought. It was funny to me. I wasn't taking a shot at Poirier or saying he had no chance in a rematch.

    I’m not saying he deserves a shot. I’m saying people have got shots for much less

    Conor beating Tony could be what he needs to erase the ass stomping Khabib gave him.
    Not that he could beat Tony just sayin’.
