...GOAT? Conor McGregor ducked the top of his division en route to a title shot. In the unlikely event that he succeeds in his fight against Aldo, we have a scenario where more questions than answers surround the champion, and the supposed "best" FW fighter must go about proving himself retroactively. But this thread isn't about Conor McGregor. It's about the idea that title challengers should be protected to preserve marketability. Is this good or bad for MMA? How long should the road to a title shot be? The masses appear divided on this issue.
