    IMO this is the co-main to book for Khabib vs Conor, especially if one of them fall out due to injury.
    There really isn't another fighter in the LW division that makes sense for Tony right now. Good way to promote Hernandez as well. I believe he's the next big thing in MMA.

    Makhachev vs Ferguson is what I want to see next, just because it'll probably be the closest thing we'll ever see to Khabib vs Ferguson. That fight is just cursed.

    Give this kid another top 15, he has no business being in the octagon with Tony.

    Too early too soon i think. Lets build up the guy slower. Tony deserves a big name oppoment imo. Dustin v Tony if the Nate fight does indeed fall through

    Hernandez v Miller could be cool. A tough well rounded vet

    Why does Tony accept this?

    Please stop.

    The only reason Tony is so good at LW is because he's so big. I actually like this matchup because Hernandez has an unusually lanky body. Maybe it could pose some problems for Tony that not a lot of fighters at the weight can pose. I would love to see Tony lose to Alexander Hernandez. lol.

    Too soon for that kid. Lots of steps to climb before he gets to Ferg.

    Give Ferguson the winner of Nurmagomedov/McGregor.

    Give Hernandez some other fights, he just beat an unranked Mercier (which is a good win, but only cemented his place in the top 15.

    Give Hernandez the loser of Gaethje vs Vick. Maybe Gaethje vs Vick winner can get Ferguson.

    Any combination between Ferguson, Poirier, Diaz and Lee sounds great.

    Ferguson vs Diaz and Poirier vs Lee would've been my pick.

    Ferguson vs Poirier and Diaz vs Lee would've also been great match-ups.

    Do we really want to see this fight already? We just saw it last October. Give Lee more time to improve.

    I mean, McGregor went from Dennis Siver to Jose Aldo (which became Chad Mendes). The LW division is tied up right now, so going from Dariush and OAM to Tony is justifiable IMO.
