    No he didn't. IMO There is absolutely nothing that puts him ahead of Alvarez.

    Chill out. Justin was ranked number 6. That's a lot better than Siver when he fought Conor.

    Dustin is not a bad option when Tony is hurt, Barboza already has a fight, and Conor is a convict.

    Who else do you think possibly deserves it? Conor is in trouble with the law and can't fight until that's sorted. Tony isn't coming back for at least a year, probably even longer. Lee and Barboza just lost a fight, and Alvarez only has one win on his record since getting beaten by Conor.

    Alvarez is the fight to make if Tony isn't healthy. I consider Conor retired at this point.

    Ideally for me - Tony vs Khabib next, depending on the length of injury for Tony.... I can't imagine Conor coming back right now

    So Poirier vs Eddie rematch - that needs to happen due to the ending of the first

    Putting Tony and Eddie above him, but why not have Dustin vs. Eddie rematch for TS and Tony first TS.

    Nah.

    Poirier is on a three win streak and it would be 4 if Alvarez was DQ’d. Eddie is on a one win streak after being absolutely embarrassed by Conor and having a torrid NC against Poirier which ended due to Eddie fouling badly. I like Eddie and think he’s a fascinating matchup with Khabib, but between him and Dustin I think Dustin deserves it more.

    With Tony recovering for a while (heard 9 months, anyone confirm?) and Conor retired, Poirier is the best option.
