    After seeing the stunning performance Conor had in his 170 lbs fight against Cowboy Cerrone in UFC 246 its quaranteed his comeback fight is gonna be something special.
    There are few options Ive heard frequently mentioned:

    Khabib rematch if he gets a win against Gathje. They need to run it back at some point.
    Anderson Silva at 176 lbs Catchweight. Both fighters agreed but UFC refused saying Silva is too old for that.
    Floyd Mayweather rematch but this time in MMA. Conor would keep it standing to prove a point.

    It doesnt really matter who Conor fights its still gonna do great numbers but those could break the PPV record.

    >Anderson Silva is too old


    Actually it was the UFC who said Conor was too much of a manlet for Silva lol. Like legit said Anderson is too big for him.

    Fake retired Conor wouldnt get Khabib rematch, Tony? Poirier rematch? Silva is a dumb option, Floyd in MMA is even dumber.

    Who doesn't beat Cerrone these days?

    Conor is probably a fringe top 10 lw at this point.

    In that order:

    1) Poirier rematch
    2) Charles Oliveira
    3) Ferguson, although I think he knocks Ferg out rather quickly because Ferg is clearly past his prime

    I think Nate is washed up and have no interest in third fight it would not help Conor rise in rankings. I'd like him to fight someone who is truly in his prime. Wouldn't mind the Makhachev fight too.

    Poirier would be a good fight for Conor, high ranked and very winnable

    1) Poirier had nothing for Conor in their first fight the only way he might take that is if Dustin somehow won a belt.
    2) Nowhere near popular enough and has no history with him at all. Thats wasted time of his prime years and I like Charles.
    3) Just got dominated by Gathje. There is nothing to gain for Conor everyone would downplay that win no matter how flawless his performance is.

    if Nate beats masvidal in their rematch then he might get some hype back and Conor might get interested.

    He will fight Khabib next unless Khabib loses to Justin, which is unlikely.

    Ali, Dana and Conor will not miss out on that opportunity.

    hehe you really think Poirier is the same guy he was almost 7 years ago when that fight happened? come on he is way better at LW and might be the current best boxer at LW.

    can agree with your Charles Oliveira take

    Ferguson is still a big name and ranked high

    Didn't Nate got dominated by masvidal? it was 3-0 before Masvidal TKO'd him. it was one way traffic and if you think Nate has something for Masvidal I have bad news for you. Conor fights so rarely anyway I don't want to see him fight the same guy three times.
