    But but...the Reebok deal...but but..lol. cool he's been on a tear since moving up to 155 glad he resigned.

    Who do y'all think he should fight next? Slim picking now that khabib/Ferguson, Pettis/barbosa Diaz/Alvarez(most likely) are booked up maybe someone like Mj when he returns from injury if he ain't out that long

    Guys like Poirier proved they belong with the best, I'm glad the UFC brass sees that and gave him a good contract. I thinkafter his fight with Mcgregor fans got to see that he's no bum and slowly becoming a fan favorite. Good on him.

    I think he should face one of the 8-15 guys like Dariush, Mairbeck, Iaquinta, MJ

    On the other hand, how would it look for McGregor to have only fought guys who then went to the minor leagues? Makes him look like a can crusher. Dana White sees deez tings.

    He should fight someone higher ranked, but I'd really like to see him beat the shit out of Chiesa for some reason.

    Poirier vs Iaquinta would be fun. Loser pays the hotel room damages.

    Well deserved, he's looked very good recently at Lightweight.

    Why should he fight someone higher ranked? All those guys have had more success at LW and still haven't got their shot at an elite lw

    Every time I see a "but but....." statement, without fail it is to some nonsense statement that nobody said. Nobody has suggested the UFC won't be able to resign guys. Probably 1/3 of its roster has been signed or resigned since the Reebox deal.

    What has been said is some vets with name recognition may start signing with Bellator, particularly with the ability to have their own sponsors (since they have name-recognition), and depending on how aggressive Bellator is and whether the UFC is serious about pursuing or matching.

    Good on him. He's a marketable guy and never boring...UFC likes fighters like him...not Jake Shields...
