    no, one more fight and win against a top 5 then perhaps, solely because of his fame.

    No. Let him fight a solid contender first.

    That's normal how it works for former champions that walked away or gave up a belt under whatever circumstance...

    Why not? You know the rest of the card on a title fight would be epic.

    Yes, of course he should. He’s the biggest star in the whole fight game.

    But of course. That's the only way Conor will ever get a title shot. Top guys like Masvidal would murk him. Why wouldn't papa give his favorite son a title fight?

    As a fan who wants to see the top contenders facing the champion I'd say no.
    If I owned the UFC & wanted the big money fight I'd say yes. Although I still have doubts that he's the big star he was three years ago, he's lost, the casual fans have clearly moved on from MMA & Fox has decided to hide ordering PPV's behind a paywall. Still be higher than the recent numbers but doesn't come anywhere close to a million buys.

    He should fight Cejudo at 145 for Volkanovski's belt

    He doesn't want a title shot. It's clear from his interviews he wants Masvidal next

    No, he should fight a few contenders first and he lost against the champion decisively.

    If he beats Cowboy they should feed him to Felder.

    Or Barboza...if he wasn’t moving down.
