    He’s coming off a loss to Khabib and has been sitting out with the rest of the top 5 booked.

    Should he have to fight RDA or Islam for the next shot?

    Or should he be allowed to wait for another title shot coming off a loss?

    What do you think?

    If it was up to me, less a draw or controversial outcome, two wins would be mandatory.

    After losing a title fight, I think a fighter should have to win at least 2 or 3 to earn another shot. Perhaps the only exception would be a clear robbery. Even if the first fight is a draw, I don't think that necessitates an immediate rematch.

    He shouldn't but he may because of the GOAT manager Ali. Maybe Conor runs off to box again if he wins the Poirier trilogy.

    He should fight Islam for the right to fight Chandler/Oliveira for the title.

    Chandler and Gaethje are made to beat up each other.

    Winner of Poirier/Conor gets the next title shot.
    Gaethje vs RDA makes sense. Winner fights for the title or against winner of Tony/Dariush as a title eliminator
