    Why did he choose Mcgregor instead of the title fight?

    Money money money money. Also the title means absolutely nothing as long as khabib is still breathing in this world.

    The Title is a consultation prize at this point.


    No one beat Khabib. The lineal Title ends here.

    Dustin is going after money now which let's be honest here, is more prestigious than the LW belt now.

    155 title will be worthless for a few years. Just like 205 is a joke

    I think it’s also an easier fight. Honestly this new Olivera would submit Dustin and Conor on the same night. You’ll see ,Olivera will drag Justin down and sub him with in one round. After Dustin kos Mcgregor he’ll fight for the title.

    I thought it was Justin Gaethge. Chandler is the worst matchup for Olivera.

    He's tasted defeat at the hands of khabib when he was at his best. This sport is tough and there's only a small window of opportunity for money/prestige. A fight with conor is guaranteed money. A fight for the belt isnt a guaranteed win nor will he get as much money. Besides sooner or later he will fight for the title anyway if he gets by conor
