    Out of the guys mentioned? Ferguson

    And it ain't close. The only guys that can hang with Tony are fighting in the main event Oct 6

    Doesn’t matter, the lw contendorship is irrelevant when the Conor khabib winner calls out gsp instead of fighting Tony

    I agree. Only from a durability standpoint though. I think Ferguson is the much more skilled martial artist and would get the job done. Sherdog will implode the day that Nate Diaz gets KO'ed lol

    Gotta go with Ferg.

    Definitely. That's the one I've been hoping for.

    That was over 5 years ago. I'm talking post McGregor-fame Nate Diaz who has mythical durability. Guys like you know he is an above average fighter at best but so many people talk about him like he can't be (T)KO'ed that's what I was getting at

    PS. O'Doyle RULES!

    What happens if Tony losses to Pettis? What happens if Gsp becomes a legit LW contender?

    If Conor beats Khabib, Conor vs Gsp for the LW title would be insane

    Maybe Tony losses to Pettis and that allows Gsp to step in for the title against Conor

    Maybe Tony wins and you do Gsp vs Tony, with the winner getting to face Conor for the title

    Or maybe Conor beats Khabib, beats Tony too, and then there's no argument to be had against Conor wanting Gsp for his 2nd LW title defense

    Or maybe Conor beats Khabib, and fights Gsp for a 165lb title to become the first ever UFC fighter to win belts in 3 classes and to become the first ever fighter to become a two-time 2 division simultaneous champ...while there's an interiun LW title match at 155 to decide who Conor fights at 155 after Gsp at 165

    Nate's corner threw in the towel.

    No one has ever legit put Nate out cold. The first fighter to do it will certainly put a huge huge feather in his cap by doing so

    I cant pick tony cause I think he coming back to soon. so in saying that I pick dustin since he have the easiest fight of them all. nate diva is a .500 fighter for a reason. I bet nate will look like he did in the rda fight.

    I see it this way;

    McGregor win via KO: McGregor vs GSP next
    McGregor win via close UD: McGregor vs Khabib 2
    Khabib win via smash or close UD: McGregor vs Khabib 2
    McGregor win via KO and Diaz win: McGregor vs Diaz 3

    Scenario 1: McGregor vs GSP & McGregor vs Khabib 2
    .Tony/Pettis winner vs Diaz/Dustin winner

    Scenario 2: McGregor vs Diaz 3
    .Tony/Pettis winner vs Gaethje
    .Lee/Iaquinta winner vs Khabib/Alvarez winner

    I don’t see Ferguson getting the title shot with a win over Pettis. Even though it doesn’t make sense, I think Diaz will by pass him if he beats Dustin.

    The only way Ferguson gets a title shot is if McGregor wins in dominant fashion, Diaz loses and the UFC refuses to make GSP vs McGregor, wish I highly doubt because of the state the sport is in right now.

    Another scenario could be McGregor winning in dominant fashion, Ferguson and Diaz losing and ne UFC not granting GSP a title shot. Maybe McGregor vs Dustin 2 could happen, but I honestly think he would probably challenge the WW champ at this point.

    You Ese!

    Conor defending one belt was already laughable...but to even begin thinking Conor would defend 155 AND 165 belts is just straight up retarded.

    Retardation is no laughing matter

    I don't like the Lee Vs Iaquinta matchup. I'd rather have Lee Vs Gaethje and Iaquinta Vs Barboza

    Or if Eddie resigns with ufc Iaquinta Vs Alvarez and Barboza Vs Hooker
