    If Conor loses, it seems likely it would be by decision because of his chin. UFC needs Conor/Ronda for UFC 200. How would you make that happen?

    I would suggest the winner of Poirier Vs. Duffy would be a good fight for Conor and for both of them too at UFC 200.

    Jose Aldo probably won't even be on the UFC 200 card.

    It is a win-win situation for the UFC.
    If Conor loses he can take a big fight at 200 to draw PPV. If Aldo loses they can set up a rematch at UFC 200 coupled with another huge fight

    he's had 1 PPV title fight that sold well, everything else has been popular and sold. It won't matter if he's the champ at all. His fan base isn't about that title, it's about him. Dude's a legit draw. Puts asses in seats.

    Conor will walk through Aldo and will make it look easy.

    "it seems likely it would be by decision because of his chin."

    That actually seems incredibly unlikely.
    If it goes to a decision the last thing that would tip the scales is his chin. Did you mean his chin would carry him to a decision loss?

    Either way the way a chin wins or loses a fight is by failing you or keeping you on your feet. A good chin is not a complement to a fighter's skill, if anything it is just the contrary--you have to take some big shots before people know if you have a good chin. Which means your defense failed and the opponent got through.

    Agreed.... would remove any doubt about their first fight and would be easy to sell....

    But I'd be quite happy to see Edgar in there.

    If he moves up give him Jury or Felder.

    If he stays at 145 give him Lamas or Stephens.

    Aldo will sink Connor's ship deep under the sea. This hype train is about to get derailed.

    He wont be cleared in time. Broken jaw usually takes time to rehab.

    Whaaat? How are you not understanding what he meant?

    He's saying Conor has a good chin so if he were to lose it wouldn't be by tko so it would more likely be a decision loss.

    I guess we are assuming he has a good chin and we're ignoring submissions....

    If he wins its Aldo rematch

    If he loses they would probably give him Holloway,Mendes or Lamas
