    Assume Conor were to take one of these fights soon (either March or July, setting up a potential fight with the Khabib/Tony winner):

    vs. Kamaru Usman for the WW title
    vs. Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title
    vs. Justin Gaethje @ 170
    vs. Justin Gaethje @ 155
    vs. Nate Diaz @ 170
    vs. Nate Diaz @ 155
    vs. Dustin Poirier @ 170
    vs. Dustin Poirier @ 155
    vs. Jose Aldo @ 155

    Rank them in your order of preference, and state whether you're a fan or a hater (if either). I wanna see how fans' and haters' lists differ. These are the bookies' favorites for his next opponent, with Khabib, Tony, and Mayweather removed and replaced with Poirier and Aldo. I'll post my list in a bit.

    Any of them apart from Kamaru because he clearly doesn't deserve that title shot.

    Even though what you say is correct about him being triple champ, he still has plenty to prove. He lost to Khabib, is only 1-1 with Nate, and hasn't fought Usman or Masvidal or Gaethje.

  9. I wanna see Colby put high pace wrestlefuck against Conor.

    I just rewatching Colby-Lawler's fight, man, Lawler had his head moving nonstop for 5 rounds.

    Nah, he was winning the Khabib fight until the fluky win, as you yourself pointed out.

    Nate got beat in the more recent fight - so this is settled.

    Usman, Mas and Gaethje are too easy to even consider.

    I think he should go straight for Izzy at MW if he wants a challenge.

    I didn't point out anything you said. In fact I disagree with your entire post.

    I think if Colby were to beat Conor he'd do it more impressively than Usman would. Higher pace and cardio that would drown Conor faster. However, I think he's also more likely than Usman is of making a mistake and running into something that ends him.

    I quoted you directly with a screenshot.
    Can't see what's wrong with that.
    So was Conor winning the fight until mid round 4 or not?

    Just fight in your goddamn division of lw and stay there for a month a two and stop jumping around like some scared rabbit looking for the easier fight to get a belt asap, that's what I wanna see.

    So hater, and presumably 155 fights first. But I'd appreciate seeing your order of preference if you'd spare the time.

    Fan.
    Poirer @ 170
    Poirer @ 155
    Justin @ 170
    Justin @ 155
    Usman
    Mas
    Aldo

    Prefer Poirer to Gaychee simply because of his association with Ali.
    Prefer Usman to Mas because even though they are both high risk, Usman has a much bigger reward. Smart play would be to let them fight and you might get a chance to fight Mas for both belts
