    UFC 248: McGregor vs Gaetjhe

    Conor secures next LW title shot via 2nd round TKO. Puts win on back burner to fall back to LW.

    July Event: McGregor vs Masvidal @ 170

    Conor wins via 4th round TKO. Secures WW title fight vs winner of Usman vs Edwards/Woodley who fight on same card.

    Q4 Event: McGregor vs Usman/Woodley/Leon

    Conor wins a highly competitive bout via UD.

    Q1 2021 Event: McGregor vs Khabib

    Conor reclaims LW crown via 1st round KO.

    Conor retires as the GOAT.


    While the fight outcomes here are very generous to McGregor, I think this path is the optimal one for him and the UFC given their situations and schedules. Worst case scenario (aside from a loss to Justin) is that he fights for the LW belt again. Best case he ends the year with 3 belts and GOAT status.
