    He’s being ducked by the entire top 10, even his fellow countryman

    Plenty of guys he can try and take to a decision in the top 10. I wish him well.

    Islam vs Carlos Ferreira, Charles Oliveira, Kevin Lee or even Poirier next. Make it happen.

    Ufc needs to start stripping guys of their rank if they refuse to fight. It is completely ridiculous at this point. If u lose a fight, it should be mandatory your next fight is someone behind you in the ranking

    Ferreira is the worst matchup in existence for Islam; best to avoid that one.

    He should try to pull Lee or Felder out of their quasi-retirements.

    Moral of the story:

    Fight once every 2 years and you’ll move up the rankings without doing anything.

    Do Bronx v Islam makes the most sense imo. Whoever wins should be considered as the next challenger for the belt, if Gaethje beats Khabib... That or Poirier v Islam, cus Dustin deserves an easy fight after so much wars he had :)

    The guy has fought in the UFC for half a decade, he's turning 29 in 2 months, hes 7-1 in the UFC and 18-1 overall with some Sambo fights under his belt too. Why do people act like hes a prospect or needs to he protected. Its time push baby bird Islam out of the nest.

    I think he can beat the Lee, Felder, Iaquinta tier fighters easy honestly. But against a Gaethje, Poirier or Ferguson he gets destroyed. The jump into the top 5 of lightweight division is a massive jump from the rest of the top 10.
