    March 7th is too quick of a turn around,
    he's not going to fight before Khabib/Tony on April 18,
    UFC 250 is May 19th in Brazil,
    The only way to do June would be if they announced it at the Khabib/Tony fight
    But the way to make the most money is UFC 252 in July, fight week
    and it's probably Jorge

    March 7th isn't a quick turnaround. He literally didn't even get touched. He could fight by then if he wanted to.

    The only way would be a via stunt, like a replacement at 170... or for the 155 strap :eek:

    According to who?

    Conor said himself he wanted a quick turn around.

    My guess is May. He wants to be ready in case Khabib or Tony pulls out so the only way to do that is having a fight in May.

    if it’s against Masvidal I would assume within the next couple of months. But the only other fight I see him taking is the winner of Khabib/tony and that probably wouldn’t be till the end of the year. There’s way too much on the line for him to be risking a possible loss before that title fight.

    It is possible he might have messed up his foot with that headkick, or got a hand injury.

    Agreed. I believe he wanted 4 fights in his 2020 season

    He’d be smart to have a quick turn around and fight Masvidal in March.... it would force a short camp for Masvidal to do while Conor is coming off one and can continue it up.

    I could see the Diaz trilogy falling somewhere just before the tony/Khabib fight though. But I think he’s saving that one to be his last big hoorah before he rides off into the sunset.

    Should deffo be the 7th of March card.

    It'd be a great way to give Adesanya the exposure he needs to reach a mainstream audience.

    248 already has two title fights. I doubt he fights there.

    UFO wants him to fight Khabib after Tony, but that will probably be in 2021 with Ramadan and amount of time Khabib takes off. I know they don't want to blow the rematch with Conor on a high now, but they would make more having him keep fighting. Conor hadn't won an MMA fight since 4 years ago, a loss in boxing and MMA and STILL did the highest numbers they have done since his last fight. His brand resiliency is remarkable. He can take a loss unlike Ronda can. Get Gaethje, Nate, MAs, even a lower Pettis like guy, but just keep him scrapping and on point.

    Imo, it's gotta be Gaethje or Masvidal. Then fight for the strap. He has a clear path for greatness again...
