    Demian Maia?
    I know he´s fighting Matt Brown in May, but if he was already on camp with no injuries it was the fight I really was interested, also they could promote it like a fight of revenge after the brazilian schooled Conor´s training partner Gunnar Nelson, that fight wasnt even competitive at all and Conor could avenge his friend´s loss-
    Plus, Maia has the perfect style to beat Conor, but I guess the UFC was not letting his new cash guy get a beating from and old BJJ guy

    so a FW is fighting a LW at WW? no... 170 is 170, no bs here, plus Conor always says that weight doesnt matter

    Conor only wants to fight names. Conor doesn't want Demian Maia to make a name off him.

    He's fighting at 170 so Nate doesn't have to cut weight on short notice.

    I really doubt Maia - a former 185er, could make weight on 11 days notice
    Or any welterweight for that matter

    Welterweight BJJ master...really ?...No....It's not about setting up the toughest possible fight for Conor. It's about saving the card because RDA fucked it up!..Conor/Nate is perfect for that.

    As the others have said, it's not a welterweight fight. It's a fight at 170 so two lightweights don't have to worry about cutting weight.

    Makes sense, since the UFC seems determined to get Conor beat my guys who at this point are mid tier fighters fighting multiple weight classes above McGregor

    Barring a quick KO, Maia would drag Conor to the ground and absolutely drown him.

    UFC would never allow that fight to happen, casuals dont know Maia, and it would be all risk with no reward for Conor.

    If you want to save a card that had a hugely popular title fight, you don't call Demian Maia.

    He has a fight scheduled already. The UFC isn't going to ruin another card in addition to this one due to RDA pulling out.
