    He could've at least attended the event, try to put his name in the mix

    Conor Vs Gaethje made sense before Conor fought Cowboy, but now Conor has passed him. Its either Jorge or Khabib
    And the fact that he turned down fights won't help him with uncle Dana

    Yup what a loser. If he want to fight Conor, he should have just said something like “Hey Conor, lets do it”. But instead, he said “say my name”. What a sore loser.

    His name is in the mix. Conor literally just fought an inferior LW in another division in the hopes of getting a rematch at a LW title. That's a big ass detour w/ Justin's name in flashing lights.

    Yeah Justin is in a wierd spot, he needs a good dance partner but everyone's tied up. It's also weird how he hasn't gotten over with the casuals, despite having one of the most fan friendly styles going.
    He's probably the rightful #1 LW contender right now, but he's gotta wait on Khabib/Tony and then Conor again if Dana feels like it.

    He pretty much has to take another fight but it's high risk.

    He needs to just take another stylistically favourable fight on a high profile card to keep his name active I suppose.

    He should fight Nate at 170 on a high profile card to build his name.
    Doubt Nate takes that fight though.

    He has handled the whole Conor call out terribly. From originally stating he didn't want Conor to then begging non-stop bringing up personal, legal stuff and just coming across as a jackass. And then finally not even showing up to UFC 246. As cringe as Jorge was with that bathrobe it was still the right move to turn up as people are talking about Conor/Masvidal and have forgotten who Justin is.

    The biggest losers are the hate-filled conspiracy theorists who desperately cry the fight was fixed.

    He just has to be patient here. If Conor won't dance take the loser of tony v khabib. If it's not Tony/khabib/Conor then it's really not worth the risk. At some point in 2020 one of the 3 will be available.

    Justin is one of the funnest guys ever to watch fight but he dropped the ball on fighting Conor. Conor is trying to clean up his image due to his legal issues and Justin kept bringing them up. Conor ain't going to fight someone who's going to bring a spotlight upon that, can't blame Conor for justin not being very bright. Conor has PR team following him around, he's trying to behave which is weird tbh.....

    After the cowboy fight, Kavanaugh mentioned Justin being a fight they’re interested in. So, that’s something.

    Poirier is still ranked high off his fresh loss to Khabib, Gaethje has been chomping at the bit so maybe he should PROVE himself n rematch Dustin as much as he’s been telling Conor to prove himself

    Both Conor himself and Kavanaugh have mentioned Justin as an opponent , he’ll get his red boxers night

    Interesting point. I think you might be on to something. Also, ya, polite Conor is very odd.

    it should be Justin next @155

    Mas should be fighting Nick, if its at all possible to make that fight

    the possibility of having back to back wins against both diaz brothers is an accomplishment no one else has and no one else will ever be in the position for....Conor has lost already....beating him for sure brings Mas lots of money but in terms of accomplishments it wouldnt be anywhere near back to back Diaz wins

    Conor is gonna duck Gaethje, with Dana ushering him right around anything to do with the possibility that Conor loses a non-title fight. Sucks for Justin, but that is the money $$$$ play right now. #NOTasrealasitgets

    Exactly!! After all the promo, what he needed to do was show up and fight (not even win, just fight), and potentially take his brand to the next level, but we all saw what happened , so he was the bigger loser of that card IMO too.

    Nick Diaz hasn’t fought in like 5 years, why should Jorge take a fight against him when he likely could be getting a title shot next? Lol

    The Conor hate blinds people of forgetting how good of a talent Mcgregor is. Conor beats Justin 8 out of 10 times. You have to have a granite chin like Masvidal , Nate , khabib. Or wrestling on another level, which khabib has both. Conor beats khabib maybe 2 out of 10

    Justin is mad because Conor beat his best win even faster than him
