    Tony Ferguson : Yeah, we all have waited for that fight for years. Eventhough "El Cucuy" must be out of his prime after his Gaethje beating, and cause he's not getting any younger, that would be a fun fight to watch. And Tony deserves that shot.

    Michael Chandler: Awesome, really tough fighter. Would be a great fight.

    Charles Oliveira: Although he should need one or two extra fights before having the title shot, he would be a very interesting matchup with Khabib due to his dangerous guard.

    So, who would you prefer as the next belt contender (if Khabib wins)?

    Tony if he gets a rebound win but I feel like he's probably fighting McGregor or GSP next.

    If Tony or Doostin picked up another win soon, they'd be in the discussion. Tony probably has the edge as the fresher match up.

    It might not be for the title, but I think GSP might be his next fight. Possibly his last fight, too.

    Khabib should just retire & ride off into the sunset an undefeated legend.


    Edit* now that I said that he’s probably fucked

    Chandler. Even though he is well past his prime, we saw how a well past his prime Alvarez did.

    I think Chandler is a much more interesting matchup for Khabib than the other two.

    If Khabib wins - Tony because we deserve to see it.
    If Gaejhe wins - winner of Conor vs Dustin.
    Chandler needs 2 fights-Hooker then Olivera then title shot.

    There is no way Chandlers name should be anywhere close to title shot talk. Hes lucky if he beats any of the top 10. Just got knocked out by a FW from a second tier org.

    Only Tony and after that Khabib retires with 30-0.

    ...Chandler? gtfo! he needs to fight 3 ranked guys atleast to even be mentioned. Straight from the B-League Bellator to being a titleshot backup....WHAT A FUCKING JOKE

    Tony is still the best option, even after that loss, but I would like to see him get in a win and see how he is. And stylistically I actually think Chandler poses the next biggest treat after Tony.

    It’s hard to vote now when you know Khabib won’t fight again after this until late 2021. Who knows who will be the best challenger in that time.
