If Masvida was confident in beating Usman, he would beat him for the belt, then Conor for WW belt

    He says he wants to fight Conor for the money but he knows he will beat Usman. Well if you do buddy then you would make 2x's as much money if you fought Conor and you were the WW champ. Face it you cant beat the Ooze. You dont want to that blanket to tuck you into bed buddy. This is real talk.

    No one is confident they will beat Usman. They can call him jock sniffer or make up nicknames for him but at the end of the day no one in that division is confident in that fight.

    The WW top 10 avoided him until he was pushed.

    Masvidal isn't a title shot contender. He beat Nate Diaz to get a made up belt, specifically for the purpose of giving McGregor a fast pass to the WW title, since he wouldn't be able to do it the honorable way. If Diaz would've beat Masvidal, it would've been the same manufactured path to greatness.

    Real talk.

    I expect it's why he's in no hurry to challenge for it. His hype goes away if he gets tossed around the cage by usman and those money fights likely dry up.

    It's high risk and losing would jeaopardize the potential money Conor fight. Masvidal is smart. He probably does believe he can beat Usman, but anything can happen and why risk it if you can get the money fight?

    I don't think it really matters as long as Mas wins. If he loses either fight then it most likely kills the other so whatever one comes first is really not relevant.

    Usman looked like Smokey The Bear last night.

    Jorge wants to get paid. That's the Conor fight. Besides, Jorge already said he wants to fight for the title after beating Conor, so he's not ducking anyone. Jorge vs Conor is much more exciting, and if Conor wins that, he'll probably get a title shot at WW.

    Well if Jorge had the belt, then Conor would almost certainly fight him, as he wouldn't be able to resist the a winnable (not guaranteed, just possible) match-up for a third belt. He was gearing up to make a move at the WW strap when Lawler was holding it, because stylistically he had a chance of winning, but then it fell off his radar when Woodley became champ. And guaranteed he's not getting in the ring with Usman.

    Usman is a too tough pick for McGregor.
