    Even as ridiculous as the UFC matchmaking can be they can’t give Conor a title shot right now. No fucking way.

    For a rubber match with Conor at 170 for one last payday; especially if he wins the belt at 170 and they can find some can to tune conor up at 170.

    Dustin might have beat Conor but Conor clearly infected him with champ champid.

    We now enter the "live long enough to be the villian" stage of Dustin's career. Feel bad for all the talent at LW finally thinking the division would stop being a clogged artery.

    He just said to Ariel that he has some ass whooping to hand out to Gaethje among others.

    Dustin trying to duck Islam?
    He does realize WW has Khamzat right?

    If Dustin keeps the redneck princess — it will help with his early retirement options.

    But if she wanders off with half his junk, he’ll likely be taking face shots into his 40s..

    Conor hasn’t won a fight at 155 since 2016. He’s not coming near a title again.

    He didn’t say that he will go straight to WW if he wins the belt. Makes no sense for him to move to WW, he would at best be a lower top 10 fighter. I also think he’s severely overrated, very good LW but he’s ~3 in my book.

    Did Gaethje get embarrassed? He fought like an idiot and still tore Poiriers quad and hurt him bad in the 3rd
    Will Gaethje won the rematch? Maybe but he will hurt Poirier worse than he did the first time

    He's 32 with some mileage. He's not going to break longevity records. He has a fight or two at 155, then he takes a money fight or 2 at 170 then retires with his brain intact. Totally reasonable.
