    How long will we still have to wait? Is it another version of Mayweather vs Pacquiao?

    Hopefully Dustin has to pull out of 242 for some reason or another and Tony takes his place.

    This is messed up.

    You want 1 exciting, worthy fighter to pull out so another has to rush on short notice not only to make weight but prepare for an opponent of Khabib's caliber (and Tony walks around 190+. He'd spend most of his camp just making weight.)

    Sounds like you do want to see the best fight the best at their best.

    well you cant blame the ufc for being gun shy to book a fight for the 5th time.

    it not floyd vs pacman cause the fight been signed 4 others times and for what ever reason it was snake bite 4 other times.

    floyd just ducked pacman until pacman was broke and needed the money

    Tony and Khabib have trained for one another a total of four times already anyway. They should already pretty much know what to expect

    I think that fight happens in December 2019 or early 2020. I need to see it. It is the best LW fight of all time between the 2 best LW's of all time soldifying LW GOAT status.

    If Fergusson wins people would still complain about title defenses which shouldn't be the LW GOAT criteria. His win over Khabib, will however leave no question in my eyes.

    If Khabib wins, you'd have to be a retarded hater to question his status as LW GOAT.

    You'll have to wait for Ferguson to stop pulling out of title fights with Khabib, like he has done now 2 times in a row (UFC 223, then refusal to fight Max which would have been a guaranteed title shot in favor of fighting Cowboy for no title). Khabib plans on fighting twice this year, so if he defeats Poirier he might be able to defend against Ferguson at the end of this year, unless Ferguson pulls out for the third time in a row.

    The fuck kind of logic are you using. Tony pulled out of a fight with Khabib by refusing the interim interim belt? Is that what you are saying? Why the hell would there even be an interim belt if the Champion is not injured? The UFC had an interim title fight when the "Champion" was healthy! Let that sink in! You are trying to twist shit suggesting Tony avoided Khabib by avoiding Max/Poirier.
    Fact is, the uninjured "Champ" was avoiding fighting anyone for as long as he could. You try and divert attention away from this fact.

    What Tony did to Pettis terrified Khabib. He literally got himself suspended the same night to avoid that fate himself. You keep suggesting Tony should have had to take the Poirier/Max fight to get to Khabib. Truth is, If Khabib's rule breaking hypocrite ass would have been actively defending his belt, an interim would not even have been necessary. Once Tony won the co-main at 229 there wasn't a logical person anywhere who thought he should fight anyone except the winner of the Main Event. Did you? The fact that changed because Beeb got his self suspended is #1 Bullshit.

    I remember the broken hearted look on Conors' face. I remember Pettis broken face.

    Yes. Refused to fight for the interim belt which would have led to Ferguson fighting Khabib in September... only to fight Cowboy for no title gain. Duck.

    Because the champion cannot physically fight and the division has to move forward. No one is going to halt all title contention in the division and simply wait 9 months until the champion can fight. No one is also going to strip a lineal, undisputed champion for a 9 month inactivity period when there's no interim champion. This is the perfect scenario where an interim belt is warranted.

    Trying to discredit the title because you dislike its holder? I see, typical Ferguson nutsack gargler behavior. The UFC had an interim title fight when the Champion was physically unable to fight and when there was no interim champion at the moment due to the previous one getting stripped for failure to defend.

    It is a fact that Ferguson consciously avoided Khabib by refusing the Max fight and specifically chose to fight a different opponent. He chose to fight a different opponent knowing full well that he is giving up his nr.1 contender title this way, as the interim champion is the nr.1 contender by definition. It was his choice and his choice alone. No amount of mental gymnastics and verbal diarrhea is going to change this.

    You claim that Khabib premeditated the misdemeanor that got him suspended. You also claim that this is a fact. If it's a fact, prove that Khabib's misdemeanor at UFC 229 was premeditated and not a spontaneous crime of passion resulting from him being a victim of a systematic bullying campaign.

    These statements do not contradict each other. Ferguson should have taken the Poirier/Max fight to fight Khabib next. He consciously gave away his title shot. If Khabib did not commit the misdemeanor that got him suspended, no interim belt would be necessary and Ferguson would be fighting for the title next. The lack of contradiction, however, does not change the fact that Ferguson consciously chose not to be next in line for the title shot, given the circumstances. Thus, he is technically a duck. Since Ferguson called Khabib a duck multiple times in the past, he is technically a hypocrite piece of shit, just like his inbred fanbase. These are facts, have fun doing mental gymnastics.

    Should and could are different cases. Ferguson did not need to fight anyone to earn the right to fight for the title, but circumstances dictated he had to fight in order to be the next title challenger. He refused to adapt to the circumstances and thus lost his chance.

    typically UFC. they won't make real superfights, like PRIDE. we waited so much for GSP - Anderson, was never done. Even GSP - Diaz was too late. Bad timing
