If Whittaker loses to Izzy again, Usman vs Whittaker is the fight to make.

    Makes no sense logistically and doubt Robbie cuts down to 170 which should be 175, but that’s honestly the biggest fight MMA can make from a pure fight perspective. Also if Usman decides to move up then Whittaker should be the first person he fights.

    Why you guys are so obsessed about that matchup? Whittaker will never make 170 again.

    Also 175? That makes ZERO sense

    Don't think so. Rob's chin was noticably worse at WW with the weight cut and he commented on how tourturous the process was after a while. And that was when he was younger and smaller. The 170 ship has likely sailed on his career. And a fight at 175 dosen't really mean a whole lot with nothing on the line.

    It would be cool to see Usman fight at 185 for the belt, fighting Whittaker at 175 coming off a loss makes zero sense

    It is not, under any circumstances, the fight to make.

    A Robert win over Israel would make MW so fucking compelling. I dont want to hear about this Usman nonsense, buddeh!

    Nobody will agree with your shitty idea.
    That’s probably one of the worse things that can ever happen… like to the point that you should be ashamed to type it to us.
    Next time PM an experienced sherdogger for advice before making such threads.

    Pretty sure he would have to get a few wins at 170 before fighting the #3 WW of all time...

    Sherdoggers proving how disastrous UFC would be with Dana gone and them running it.

    If Usman ever moved up, it would only be to fight for the belt.

    Whittaker would get KTFO if he cuts that much weight again. Easy win for Usman.

    And Usman would get KTFO if he ever went up to 185. Easy win for Whittaker.

    Whittaker would be his worst match up by far.
