We all know its either Khabib or Tony in line for a TS at LW. But now Aldo has gone on record implying that Khabib turned down an interim LW title fight with him. Why would they even offer Aldo this fight, when he has a legit contender in Max Holloway at FW? If you know anything about the sport, you'd know that Aldo is possibly a very bad matchup for Khabib. He's a great striker with possibly the GOAT TDD and amazing scrambling ability to get back up if he gets taken down. Of course he is much smaller, but TDD is a skill, and if he can stay off the ground there is no doubt that he can light Khabib up with his striking. So why are the UFC offering the FW champ an interim title LW fight? The only reason I can think of is to protect McGregor from Khabib. If they can get Aldo to do Conor's dirty work for him and eliminate Khabib, then Conor will fight Aldo as his first LW defense who is a much more favorable matchup. Thoughts?
