    Is he going to defend it regularly, as well as the FW title?

    If you want to be a two division champion you need to defend on a regular basis. How is he going to defend both belts within the normal schedule?

    He'll knock out Robbie at UFC 200.

    More and more I'm starting to think he'll go after lawler at UFC 200.

    If he does go up to fight Lawler I can't see him ever going back to FW, I think he'll vacate the FW belt.

    If I'm Conor I defend 145 once, twice maximum before continuing at 155 but I'm not Conor and Conor is a madman.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he's crazy enough to try middleweight afterwards lol.

    I don't think so.

    No matter if he wins or loses,he won't fight at FW again IMO

    If he wins, vacate FW title,WW title shot and then ask Edgar to come up to LW to get his shot

    If he loses,vacate FW title,RDA rematch

    If he wins the LW title as well, he will be a UFC hall of famer.

    Going up to WW would be ludicrous. There is no way he can fight in 3 weight classes, fighting at two would be taxing on the body. He is too small for WW.

    If McGregor beats RDA, he will probably defend against Frankie at 155 lbs covering 2 stuck in the mud divisions.

    If he beats Lawler, he would give up the LW belt and go after GSP record of defences at WW.
