So Khabib is out till November, and the UFC didn't strip him, one of the few champions who would get such a treatment. Next, the UFC refused a GSP - Khabib matchup in November. Despite it being a huge draw. Then, we have Max Holloway moving up and fighting for the Interim title against Tony before giving it to Porier. From that sequence of events, I can conclude one of three things. 1) The UFC is turning down higher payouts from the fighters because of profits, hence GSP and Tony breaking down. 2) The UFC has plans for Khabib. They will strip him of the belt in July, and give the undisputed to Conor and the winner of the interim. If Conor wins, GSP gets the title shot in November. If Conor loses, Khabib comes back and fights the champion. No way they wait 8 more months after the interim fight for an undisputed one. 3) The UFC is sick of GSP fighting for the belt and vacating. They won't wait more than a year for a 155 title fight. Conor refuses to fight for the interim belt, or fight Khabib for the real belt. Tony vs Porier won't sell, so they need at least Max here, and that opens up for an Aldo title fight at 145. Tony wouldn't take it, so they offered Porier the fight. If Max loses, he goes back to 145, and Porier fights Tony/Khabib/Conor for the undisputed.
