If McGregor wins against Diaz at UFC 202, then...

  1. St-Pierre vs. McGregor

    22.1%
  2. McGregor vs. Aldo 2

    77.9%
  1. (Disclaimer: This card was booked before Uncle Dana's announcements yesterday.)

    EXCERPT

    Obviously, a lot of MMA purists will not like this booking. The featherweight division, which Conor McGregor is the champion of, has been held up due to McGregor’s (so far fruitless) ambitions in heavier weight classes. With a second fight against Nate Diaz on the horizon, the expectation is that whatever happens at UFC 202, McGregor absolutely has to go back down to featherweight to defend his title against interim featherweight champion José Aldo in a rematch of their thirteen-second clash at UFC 194.

    (But the) UFC needs a reliable main event between two of the biggest superstars they can get to headline the most significant show in their promotion’s history. Georges St-Pierre versus Conor McGregor is it. If McGregor goes back down and loses to Aldo, it’s entirely possible the ship will sail on ever making this megafight possible. The UFC cannot let this happen. To sound as cliché as possible, the time is now for St-Pierre-McGregor.

    PART TWO (Main Card and Prelims): http://mma-manifesto.com/2016-articles/lets-book-ufc-205-new-york-city-part-2.html

    EXCERPT

    A teacher-versus-student relationship gone downhill with bad blood still in turmoil: tempers in training, claims of backstabbing, bans, exoduses, training partner stealing, PED accusations – it’s such a dramatic story to tell.

    For these two elite bantamweights who were once as close as brothers and claimed they would never fight each other, the subsequent hostilities after T.J. Dillashaw left Team Alpha Male have opened up a major opportunity for the UFC to cash in on what could be the biggest grudge match in bantamweight history (or, at least, the biggest one after Dominick Cruz-Urijah Faber).

    If Dillashaw defeats Faber, he solidifies his title shot to rematch Cruz, or to fight whoever the bantamweight champion is at the time (Cruz recently stated a preference to fight Faber protégé Cody Garbrandt if he should get past Takeya Mizugaki – which if Garbrandt eventually upsets Cruz, he sets up another compelling fight against his former Team Alpha Male compatriot, Dillashaw, to avenge Faber). If Faber wins and retires afterward (as he hinted after the Cruz fight), it allows an opportunity for Cruz to take a superfight at featherweight if the Garbrandt fight happens in late-2016 and Cruz is successful.​

    Stupid fight. It would be so one sided GSP would probably finish a fight for the first time in years.

    Conor-Jose 2 I guess. Even though I think he'd beat Jose again. GSP would manhandle Conor.

    Conor is not a WW, he will never be one. His takedown defense and ground game are solid, but not great.

    I'm not sure where GSP is this long after retirement, but I imagine that he'd still be the favorite.

    After 202 I think the public will have enough of seeing Mcgregor get embarrassed. Let the little guy go back to the small man divisions...

    Conor has no chance of beating GSP. He would get double legged and submitted or pounded on with gnp until the fight is stopped. GSP has fought and beaten guys that have fought at Middleweight. Let's be realistic.

    Let's be real.

    Aldo vs GSP at 155 is a real megafight
