    So Max and Yair is next...

    Winner gets Volk,
    Ortega fights loser ? I think that makes sense not only rankings wise but also the timing should be right on par..

    Then we can have maybe Kattar and Giga in a FN main event somewhere in December/January?

    What do u guys think?

    I think only way Max gets a shot is if Volk isn't the Champ anymore.

    Why is everyone overlooking the #4 ranked contender, KZ?

    He's ranked ahead of Kattar, Zabit and Giga but they all get contender fights instead of him?

    I wouldn’t mind seeing max vs. Volk 3. All their fights were close.

    But I’m afraid volk will win a close decision again and they’ll just keep on trying.

    Kattar has lost the most recently and Zabit hasn't fought in 2 years. KZ just dominated Ige.

    Giga is probably easier for the UFC to sell since he's on a 9-fight win streak; Holloway has already fought Volk twice, Yair hasn't really been active (not to mention the UFC and fans don't really care for him), KZ needs more wins, and everyone else in the top rankings are coming off losses.

    Just send Conor back down and let him pretend he finished the weight cut.
    He’ll spark all these fools and outegkick Aldo.

    The word "legend" is overused by UFC fans.

    I'd say it's because the top 2 fighters (Max and Volk) have already fought twice and are beating everybody else, so the division is stale.

    I think Giga- next win gets a title shot for sure- he's the most exciting active fighter in the division-

    FW has multiple contenders that haven’t fought recently even the last couple years.
    Yair, Zabit, Korean Superboy, And others.
    If some of the guys were more active im not sure it would seem that way, but it is dumb that people are still getting title shots after beating Jeremy Stephens (who I love to watch btw) Aldo leaving and Mendes retiring has changed the division, and a lot of other guys eventually move up to LW

    That is a day dream.

    Max arguably beat him and it was a split decision. By definition split decisions are controversial, history demands it gets cleared up.

    Max beat the ever loving dogshit out of Kattar in an absolute thriller. If he beats up Yair, he's definitely going next.

    Arnold Allen also needs a top 5 opponent. Give him the loser of the Holloway-Rodriguez fight.

    Korean Superboy is on a 3 fight losing streak, no idea how you include him with Yair and Zabit
