    I'll start. Tony Ferguson vs Nate Diaz.

    Imagine five rounds of that, with Ferguson coming forward and going for crazies things standing and on the ground. Nate's ground game and durability also being so good makes this fight crazy in my opinion.

    It literally bothers me that we'll never see this fight. If Nate beats Conor, he's gonna cherry pick a few money fights and retire. If he loses, he may just retire or do the same thing. There is no way Nate is taking fights against LW contenders who aren't draws. He was barely up for that before Conor.

    I'll also add Donald Cerrone-Conor McGregor as well as Nate Diaz-Edson Barboza

    What other fights can you think of?

    Nate could not handle barboza's leg kicks.

    Nate/Tony would be f'king amazing and could happen! If nate beats Conor and then Alvares and Tony beats RDA (and Khabib gets injured)

    Dominick Cruz vs José Aldo would be amazing

    I'm still salty about Aldo vs Pettis never happening. It might not be as appealing today, but man it was hype as fuck back when it was scheduled

    We already missed the hype train for Jones/Gus 2. It will be much less relevant if it even happens again.
