    Are they waiting for the winner of Chiesa and Luque in a couple weeks before deciding what next? Maybe if we see a big finish, they might get the call up?

    Colby hasn't fought in almost year, he is supposedly next in line
    Leon needs to sign a fight ASAP before being left on the side again waiting, cannot see him wanting to fight anyone except Usman
    Burns just came off of a big win, he is gonna need another win at least. He will fight anybody but my concern is, I think most of the division will duck him now after he beat WB

    I think Burns V Leon is the fight to make for the contender spot, makes most sense. But I would like to see Burns fight Luque and Chiesa, no sure where Masvidal and Nate fit in to all of this, but I am sure they will interfere in some way

    Easy

    Usman vs Colby 2
    Leon vs Belal rematch (no way Leon loses, then he gets winner of Usman/colby)
    Burns vs Chiesa/Luque winner
    Masvidal vs Diaz/Lawler (either winner or loser)

    I think, quantitatively, if you were to calculate the amount of risk each fighter took in their respective current streaks, Leon has risked and accomplished more than Colby, Burns, or whoever wins Chiesa/Luque.

    I think if fan interest was taken into account, it would make no difference, cuz no one gives a shit about any of them, Colby included.

    The fact that Burns took Wonderboy when Leon wouldn't, and Colby didn't want any of them should disqualify both of them for a title shot.

    I would legitimately be ok with Usman taking a vacation until the UFC forces Colby to fight Leon, or Burns fights the Chiesa/Luque winner. Maybe Kamaru can take a 1-off middleweight fight for fun in the meantime, like Silva used to at LHW.

    No Dana has already confirmed Covington gets the next shot in November/December. Hes said this repeatedly.
