    Khabib has had a stranglehold on the LW division for a good amount of time.

    Now that Khabib is basically out of the picture, after the results tonight, the clear matchup is Chandler vs Poirier for the LW title. Let Conor go fight Hooker or Gaethje.

    Im willing to bet this loss eats at Conors soul, and he attempts to strongarm Dana into a rematch trilogy fight with Poirier. Dustin will play hardball and sit out in attempt to get the UFC to pay him properly for a rematch, and the division has to sit once again waiting due to Conor having too much pull within the company.

    I think you underestimate Danas man love for Conor

    Dana cares more about ratings than rankings

    This. Oliveira is on an 8 fight tear, hasn't lost in over three years, and just eviscerated Tony Ferguson. Don't forget, Chandler got KTFO by a FW three fights ago. Oliveira vs. Poirier is clearly the fight to make. Geathje vs. Chandler is the fun, can't miss fireworks #1 contender bout.
