    It's clear for whatever reason either UFC brass or Ali doesn't want Islam to fight a top 10 opponent. Ferreira just got a high profile win to kick off a McGregor card. I think he and Makhachev should throw down.

    I’d pick CDF to win. Not even a knock on Islam, this guys looked so good since he switched to Fortis MMA.

    It’s really simple. Khabib and his dad tell Islam what to do, he’s not fighting a top guy until khabib is ready to retire

    No, he actually has top 15 wins so shouldn’t fight down. Islam can fight Gregor or Hernandez

    Khabib's father pretty much confirmed this in one of his recent interviews. Khabib is gonna retire after 2-3 more fights, and Islam is supposed to take his place.

    Nah, they should both get top 10 guys next fight. They're both on 6 fight win streaks without getting a top 10 opponent yet ffs and it's ridiculous that either of them should have to win 7 straight before getting a top 10.

    Pettis is no top 10 fighter, hasnt been for years. The rankings are trash. Hooker, Islam, Gregor all beat him

    I'd be down to watch Iaquinta but Barboza is moving down.

    I don't think he is either but Ferreira is on a big streak and he beat number 11 regardless of the legitimacy of the rankings.

    Wrong, Abdulmanap has asked for Conor and Tony to fight Makhachev.

    If you ain't top 5 you have to beat mini Khabib before you get a shot on the guy himself. I like.

    And you think thats a true offer? Why should either Tony or Conor be interested in fighting Islam?
    This is obv something they put out on purpose to build the narrative that Islam is the new boogeyman of the division and nobody wants to fight him.
