If Conor wins, does he stay at 170 to fight Lawlor at 200?

    How wild would it be to be a two-belt holder that skips a division?

    * Lawler I meant

    He should be fighting at 170, anyway. Also, he won't be a two-belt holder. Since the guy holding the other belt shattered his foot.

    Right... against a 6'2", 190lb walking-weight Condit.

    i am very convinced that's the plan here. assuming he starches diaz without much damage, lawler/conor at ufc 200 is a big match.

    they already have wonderboy/rory on the back burner in case someone gets injured

    Here is Conor McGregor, standing next to the greatest Welterweight in MMA history. GTFO.

    If he does he should have to relinquish his 145 belt. No sense in holding up a division that he wouldn't be returning to

    That would really be something.

    I agree with this.

    Now he's fighting Filthy Tom at a 200 catchweight? What a legend.

    Hell no.

    Well depending on RDA's recovery I wouldn't put it past the UFC to something stupid like this.
    But on the face of things beating Nate Diaz @ 170 doesn't earn you a title shot @ 170. What the fuck people have lost it.
