    Imagine he loses to Nate?
    Will he still get a shot at a weight class' champion when he couldn't beat a lesser opponent?
    Even if he does, wouldn't the buzz around it be a lot different if he was unbeaten than if he lost to a lower opponent who the champ easily beat?

    if he loses he doesn't get anymore fights at LW until he defends his belt or loses his belt. Its not rocket science.

    well the fact that it is not at 155 changes things a little bit and makes a loss easier to absorb in my opinion....

    If Diaz wins, Conor will still get the TS at LW because "he fought 2 weight classes above his own" and "say what you will but it takes balls to take on a long time veteran, one of the most dangerous fighters in the sport, at such short notice at welterweight." Not a big chance that Diaz is gonna knock Conor out cold. So should Conor win the LW title next, it immediately sets up a "highly anticipated rematch, but now with the weight cut". If Conor wins, Dana will squirt and call Conor "the p4p best fighter in the world." It'll set up a TS at LW and will let talk of a WW TS start rolling as well. If it is competitive, the rematch talks rolls again, if Conor TKO's him, they'll just say "fuck Diaz, he's unmarketable anyway and he got his paycheck so."

    Everyone currently nuthugging McGregor will begin nuthugging Diaz and Sherdog will be rife with Diaz = GOAT threads to the point that folk begin to violently puke.

    Different day, same shit.

    If he loses to Nate, which is doubtful since they picked an out of shape fighter who will strike with McGregor, then the entire train derails. He gets no shot at RDA, Nate does, he gets no shot at Lawler, which is ridiculous to begin with since Tyron, Wonderboy, and Condit are all waiting for a title shot. He is left only with concentration camp cut to 145 to try to beat Edgar as his 1st title defense.
