    My hope for the future of UFC is to have McGregor beat RDA, then move on to 170 and get that belt too, holding 3 belts. Then, because of McGregor's big mouth, the polite french canadian GSP decides it's time to come out of retirement to fight McGregor.

    It would be the biggest fight in UFC history, and would take many years to top.

    Don't hold your breath. Conor has plenty of holes and will be exposed eventually. The only way he gets to a WW title shot is because Dana will keep throwing title shots at him as long as he wins. He'll keep skipping over the talent of the division to play favorable odds of making a good run while never really having earned a title shot by taking out contenders of the division. There are tons of fighters at 155 and 170 who would destroy him, making him look like an amateur.

    GSP would destroy Conor so easily it wouldn't be funny.

    Gsp is the bigger man. Simple as that. You know how conor likes to compare individual stats like reach and height. Hed get smoked

    this

    but it would be a 5 round decision. That's what GSP does. Every time. This would be no different. If that's destroy, then you are right.

    But it isn't.

    Cain vs Jones.

    It's fun randomly throwing random names together.

    That's thinking about 500 steps ahead.

    Beating RDA and becoming a 2 division champ is a long shot. Even if he managed that he's got a larger striker with a granite chin waiting for him at WW, and even if he took that belt, GSP is retired anyway.

    GSP is, literally, the worst possible matchup for a guy like Conor. Unlike Mendes, he's capable of taking him down and holding him there, punishing him the entire 5 minutes of every round.

    If Conor beats RDA, and that's a big if, then GSP vs Conor is the next fight to make period. Here are 4 reasons why.
    1. It will make record numbers easily.
    2. It will be safe for UFC because if Conor losses he still has 2 belts to defend and is just as marketable
    3. GSP sells out a stadium with a WW title shot in Canada with a win.
    4. If Conor wins he goes for the ww strap and we know how that will sell.


    Writing is on the wall.

    Not seen McGregor at 155 in the UFC but suddenly think he can fight GSP at 170 lol.

    So beating the actual champ at a weight isnt as legit as beating a couple of top ten guys in your mind?

    Gotcha.

    But then that goes against everything he's said about defending both belts regularly. One division gets held up at least six months and the other up around 9 months...pending no injuries.

    Although if you think about it, if Conor holds two titles then gets seriously injured...he could set a new record: the only fighter to get two belts stripped simultaneously

    If Matt Serra KO'd GSP then Conor will dust him in under 2 rounds.
