    This is what should happen. Retards are calling for Chandler vs Gaethje next. Chandler got 1 win against hooker and gifted a title shot. He should not be thrown straight back into a contender fight. Dariush is on a win streak.

    Oliveira VS winner of Dustin V Conor (Dustin deserves it, and even if conor doesn't oli deserves the payday)
    Dariush VS Gaethje (next contender, fuck off Ali make this fight)
    Chandler VS RDA (RDA should get a chance against a top 5, Chandler should fight down after being gifted a title shot and losing)

    Not bad.

    I guess the only gripe I'd have and real question is centered around - How washed is Tony Ferguson?

    - Justin Gaethje mollywopped his ass and got a title shot vs Khabib, lost.
    - Charles Oliveira dominated him as well, got the vacant title shot vs Chandler, won.
    - Beneil Dariush dominated him pretty much, but not as badly as the other two damage/threat wise, still domination.

    The question is how good is Dariush really? Does he really deserve a #2 contender, essentially, fight? It's another guy on a streak against middling competition until he got to the big name - Tony Ferguson. The question really is, does that name carry weight anymore.

    Also I think Islam is being left out here. I think Islam, again let's connect this to Tony, would have dominated the fuck out of Ferguson as well and perhaps finished him where as the others besides Gaethje couldn't. But who knows.

    Dariush said he's not fighting till around the new year.

    That would mean Gaethje doesn't fight for over a year.

    And of course, Poirier-McRunner 3 through 14.

    Yeah that’s pretty good. If Dariush is taking extended time off then Chandler/Gaethje could be fun.

    What do you think of Dariush vs Islam? Ben mentioned him as a possible fight there.


    Also TS I'm pretty sure after watching Dariush post fight interview he would never fight Gaethje except for the belt maybe.

    I'd love to see Dariush vs Islam. And the timing would work out well if Dariush fights again in late 2021.

    Chandler knocked out outlaw, Benson Henderson, Dan Hooker and was beating the shit out of Olivera as well...

    "Retards" are calling for the guaranteed best fight you fucking goof. Why would you want anything else?
