Then title shot. Conor has a track record avoiding wrestlers it seems.
I don't see Conor fighting Poirier next if he wins, that's too much of a step-down. He wouldn't have anything to gain right now from beating Poirier (again), and would have everything to lose.
I think that Conor should fight Justin if he wins, and then the winner of that fights the Khabib-Tony winner
I rather he fought Poirer than Justin just to deny Ali another cut.
He should be fighting Poirier instead of Cowboy right now. Both coming off losses to Khabib.
Poirier ranked #2, Conor ranked #4.
Porier or Gaethje, but let's not kid ourselves wait for the outcome of the upcoming fight.
Now that’s a fight that will get the people going.
If Conor wins then he either fights Maz for the BMF or Gaethje with the winner getting a crack at the LW Champ El Cucuy.
If Conor wins this week his next fight is Gaethje.
What wrestlers has he avoided exactly? He fought Mendes and Khabib lol. Who's the wrestler at 155 he would avoid? Kevin Lee?
Yeah as long as you can get Poirier a pick me up fight to get his confidence back. I don't want a discouraged Poirier anywhere near that guy. I want Poirier at his fucking best. I don't want to see him get dunked on at press conferences.
There's zero chance he fights Dustin again. If Conor beats Cowboy, there are exactly five potential opponents. The two most likely opponents are Masvidal and Khabib-Tony winner. Nate, Usman, and GSP are also possibilities, but I think they're long shots.
Personally, I believe Conor will wait to see the outcome of Khabib-Tony. If Tony wins, Conor will fight for the LW belt. If Khabib wins, Conor will fight Masvidal.
Poirier had his chance at the title and was dominated by Khabib. Justin Gaethje has won 3-4 in a row now convincingly. If Conor is to get another shot at a 155 title, he needs to fight Justin, and beat him. Otherwise, Gaethje deserves a shot at that title. He is exciting, has decent wrestling [or so I hear], and would be a good PPV attraction. I would rather see Gaethje fight Khabib or Fergeson for the title next, than see McGregor get dominated again by the Russian.
Conor will fight the winner of Khabib/ Tony or be a replacement if either pulls out. Nothing less.
Conor and Justin hopefully..
If he beats Cowboy, they have to make the Masvidal fight. That fight is perfect.
He already murdered Poirier. It's Masvidal then back to boxing if he wins imo. He's after the money, not silly little UFC rankings. $100 million > chasing ducks
Conor will fight Masvidal after he beats Cowboy.
