    Obviously, him losing vs Siver could do so - but I think we all agree that if he wins in impressive ways, he's facing Aldo next.

    But: let's say he wins, but it's a decission, maybe even a close one. Would he still get the title shot next?

    Some other fighter miraculously becomes a greater needle mover than McGregor between now and the next fight with Aldo. Just forget about this whole UFC is a sport thing, you'll be disappointed less.

    Aldo gets injured which results in Conor taking another fight in the meantime against either Edgar, or Lamas—both of which would be dangerous opponents for the goat.

    If he looks very bad against Siver or if he doesnt finish Siver he might not get the title shot im assuming.

    If it's a close or controversial fight with siver I don't think he gets it... Err forget what I just said, Conor could win by dq and he'd still get a title shot.

    I don't know, if it's not a decisive win they might want to build him up a bit more.

    As someone said above, Aldo getting injured (and we know that could happen). McGregor would have to fight Frankie or Lorenzo Lamas.

    If he wins (by any result) then he fights Aldo. If he loses, they might make the Mendez or Swanson fight which would be nearly as fun as the Aldo fight. Win/win really.

    Not at all. The depends entirely on a fighters ability to draw viewers. If you create a lot of PPVs, Dana will not only provide the banknotes, he'll even role them up for you.

    Realistically? Losing to Siver or blowing out his knee

    He'll get the shot if he wins in any fashion other than maybe winning by DQ or fight being a NC. If he wins by a robbery due to bad judging, he may still get the title shot.

    Maybe if he lost his tongue?

    Edgar and Mendes are tough fights but I see Conor easily handling Lamas and Swanson.
