    Seeing as Conor has decided to keep both his belts, should he defend both of go up and put a beating on the WW champ to add a third strap to his collection.


    If he fights at FW he will more than likely finish Aldo within a minute, worst case scenario he slaps the head off the little fella in 1 whole round and either Aldo gets knocked into 2018 or, taps to strikes like his fellow Brazilian quitter Shogun did against John Jones. Don’t get me wrong I like Jose, he’s a pioneer of the sport. He was the champion for a long time and even though there were only a handful of fighters in the whole world way back when he was the champion, you have to give him credit for grinding out razor sharp decisions against fighters at his level. I mean who knows, if The Notorious Conor McGregor never came along then he may have been a champion in 2016. Then again he was handed the belt initially until he got knocked into 2016 after 13 seconds and shamed his whole country in the process.


    If he fights Aldo and then when he knocks him into 2018 he could then move back up and ragdoll Khabib. Let’s be honest here, he’s a good fighter but once he finally steps up a level and fights someone as well rounded as The Notorious Conor McGregor then, he’s quite simply getting mauled. If the previous dominant champion Eddie Alvarez got eaten alive in 2 rounds then Khabib will get retired in ½ a round


    With all this talk of him not defending his FW belt, I’m curious to know what people think? Should he defend FW, then defend LW or should he just go straight after WW belt and let the contenders scrap it out for a piece of the pie if and then whenever he ever decides to fight at their weight. They could then get knocked out for a few million and retire in the knowledge that they fought the Greatest Of All Time.

    he avoids defending for a reason.
    He'd lose both belts...

    ...then again, he will probably lose his second belt due to refusal of defending as well.

    He didn't defend the single belt he had in 3 fights and a year. Why would think he'd be able to defend 2? he's won 2 belts in UFC, and both divisions gonna wind up with interim champ. That's all the evidence you need.
    he's already been stripped anyway.

    He was allowed to defend the FW belt. He didn't.

    He earned them, he should have the opportunity to defend them.

    Technically he's been stripped...but We all know who ko'd aldo in 13 seconds...Giving a guy a title is crazy...Conor is going to keep calling himself a 2 weight division champion....whether the ufc has taken the FW belt or not...
