If Mcgregor loses will Nate still try calling him out with a win against Poirier?

    Whether they both win, lose, or any mixed result, there is TOO MUCH money on the table with a potential Nayt/Connie trilogy for them to walk away from.

    If Nate beats Poirier he will definitely mumble incoherently with intermittent swearing and angry faces

    If Nate wins and Conor loses that is the fight that will happen.

    Depends on how badly Khabib beat his ass.

    If Khabib actually rearranges his face and psyche Conor might retire and never fight again.

    If Conor can rebound then Nate will absolutely chase that fight. Much more winnable than vs. Khabib and for much more attention and money.

    After Khabib beats Conor things will go back to normal and we will finally see the fifth fight between Khabib and Tony, incase you've forgotten they're 2-2 and it's a best of 7.

    I agree.

    Conor will likely make 20+ million. Or maybe even 30+.

    If he loses badly he will likely sit out for a while at least. Maybe his pride kicks in like the last time and he will call for a rematch which he would probably get. Or he might be done with the sport alltogether.

    Also Nate is far from a guaranteed win for him. Chances are another fight would be a war again that he could lose and he might not be into that. Pretty much any fight will still sell good for him anyway.

    His drawing power would liklely take a hit but he would still probably be able to get over 1 million buys.

    Nate would probably have to wait. I think the UFC would give Conor a rematch just because they want him to win.

    After seeing Tony buggering about with tables or whatever the hell it was he was up to earlier this week, I'll be surprised if that fight doesn't get made and cancelled another four times.

    I see a purple pillow in Connor's future.

    If Conor loses he should not fight Nate next. Thats a hard fight for him. I would say fight Poirier if he wins. If Nate wins fight #2.

    Not at LW. Nates cardio is always on point but the weight cut will affect him and Conor finishes Nate at 155

    If Khabib beats Conor, it's gonna be immediate rematches until he wins. Nate will just wait for that.

    I believe there is only two instances in which Conor vs. Nate doesn't happen next.

    1. Nate loses and Conor wins their next scheduled fights

    2. Conor decides he wants GSP instead ( Conor will need to win his nex

    Any other outcome of the fights sets up Conor vs. Diaz 3.

    assuming Nate vs Conor can make it past the press conference without anybody going to jail for extended periods of time or hurting any civilians, yeah that fight would be dope.
