    “Let me make a prediction: McGregor’s next fight is going to be Tyron Woodley for the welterweight title.

    “This is the fight that’s going to happen. Every sign is this is going to happen.”
    “Now, Khabib has become the boogeyman the UFC uses for leverage in negotiations,” he declared. “I’m okay with that.”

    Interesting. I thought all signz were pointing toward a LW defense... but I wouldn't put a Woodley fight out of the mix.

    Would like to see him drop to FW one more time before bulking up too much to make it back down again.

    Said it before in another thread about this, if a manager is ok with his fighter being used like that and possibly not getting what he deserves he's a shill and needs to be fired. Khabib is better than "negotiation leverage" to make other fights happen.

    I don't believe anything this Ali Abdulakeemaziz or whatever his name joker has to say. The guy is a slimeball that uses his clients Twitter handles and likes to spread bs, and it sounds like he's doing it again. I'm not buying it.

    If both guys want it to happen, it will happen. Like dana said he cant force people to sign for fights. What he actually meant was he cant force the stars of the sport to do jack shit, as they dont need to beg for money.

    This is nonsense. Woodley will probably fight during Conor's maternity leave, and might not even be WW champ by the time Conor is back. Pure nonsense to victimise Khabib.

    Does Conor even talk about Khabib? If he is going to defend the LW belt it will likely be Khabib that he fights.

    No need to defend against the people who got beat by the guy you just beat.

    Records are more important.

    Nah Conor and is team are way to smart to take this fight. Woodley is too big and powerful. Conor is by far the better pound for pound fighter and I think if he could avoid that big right hand he would dominate Woodley but they aren't dumb. Look what one or two of those big right hands do to guys much bigger than Conor. That would be a bad career move. Not worth the risk.

    Khabib needs to shut his mouth about everyone else and earn his shot. Fight more than once a year and maybe you'd have already gotten that title shot. Conor fought his way to where he is and was smart enough to know how to make those fights happen. Earn your keep Khabib . Ferguson deserves it more than you. Quit dodging that fight

    Conor likes to always have a safety net to fall back on.

    Tries for WW if he makes it then great if not then he has the LW tittle.

    Normally he should be smashed but who knows Woodley can easily crack under the pressure and the content of the big money fight he always wanted.

    Plus great tactic of using all the names like Diaz, Aldo, GSP, Khabib, Tony, Woodley against each other to make them lower their financial demands.

    So let me get this straight:

    According to the Conor fan base, he did not earn the LW shot by going 1-1 vs Nate - "those fights were at 170" ..."Conor earned his shot because of his run at 145, 13sec etc."

    ...but hilariously, those two fights will be shoved under the carpet now that he is going after Woodley. Now Conor earned his WW shot by beating Alvarez! ROFL

    Conor's legacy is going to be the most amazing pile of bullshit in the history of the UFC.
