    Everyone knows Khabib vs Ferguson doesn't make sense. They made this match to eliminate one of the contenders. If McGregor is that scared, he should fight an easier fight. Lando is worse than Ferguson and Khabib at this point, but he is the future. If McGregor wins, good for the UFC. However, it is more likely that Lando KOs McGregor. It is still good for the UFC because Lando is the next Jon Jones.

    I don't get this "trying to eliminate contenders stuff"

    If they don't fight the one that gets passed over is gonna have to take another fight against somebody else or sit on the shelf for the year and wait.

    The loser of Ferg X Khabib would be 1 (2 max) wins away from getting the next shot which they could accomplish by the time the winner has had his shot.

    Them fighting doesn't eliminate anyone, it just ensures the most deserving contender gets the first crack

    When you say Ferguson do you mean Woodley?

    You don't let number 1 and number 2 fight each other. The loser has to get a couple of wins to earn another title shot.

    Would fucking watch. Even if it doesn't exactly make sense, no one can argue that a Conor/Lando match up looks exciting as fuck on paper.

    Why? So Colin fans can run like fairies saying he defended a belt? He needs to fight Khabib and Ferguson.

    He won't though, conor is a fucking bum.

    McGregor could always just solve the problem by fighting the #1 contender and not being a bitch about it

    No they don't
    1 win is all you need when you're where Khabib and Tony currently are and you take a L to the #1 contender.

    So...
    How do you decide who gets shafted? Because the guy that gets passed over is gonna have to wait just as long as he would have if he had lost the fight that didn't happen...Might as well give yourself a fighting chance rather than basically taking the L without fighting.

    Conor is supposed to fight the toughest guys, being champ and all (however Bisping-Hendo). Lando is the one that needs to be smoothly brought up in the rankings.

    I honestly don't think Woodley wants that fight. I know Tyron can take a freight train to the face.. but McGregor's left would be too much for him IMO.
