    If Conor should KO Cowboy in 1 minute of round one where should he be ranked ? If Cowboy is Tony's best win in several years isn't KTFO of Cowboy faster and a win over a even higher ranked Dustin worth more? Technically this fight isn't even at 155 so should he be ranked at WW instead ? I don't honestly know the answer. I also don't know if he beats Cowboy but I do think it is a interesting question. What is your opinion?

    Top 30 at WW and removed from rankings at LW.

    The same place other LWs that are 2-1 in the UFC are ranked.

    I understand your point of view on LW rankings but taking out Cowboy in under a minute is way faster than any other top 5 WW would do so I would think top 5 WW maybe.

    No LW can beat Khabib, so that loss is irrelevant until somebody does.

    What other LWs had their first two ufc fights in the division against the reigning champions? Rank him how you'd rank them, if they exist.

    He should take Cowboy’s spot. Easy.

    Mas beat Cowboy in round 2 and Mas is looking great these days. If Conor beats him 1 min in to round 1, right behind Mas at 5 in WW is realistic.

    Yes, but he has also already beaten number 3 ranked Dustin as well.

    UFC will twist the rankings if Conor wins making Cerrone suddenly be a top 3 WW ranked opponent, suddenly opening Conor to a title shot which he’ll lose in embarrassing fashion.

    Around #8 or #9...maybe two more wins away from a title shot.

    Don't be surprised if Cowboy suddenly shoots up in ranking before the Conor fight.

    If Conor wins he will have more wins over the current top 5 at LW than anybody including Tony and Khabib.

    I figure 4 weight champion is a modest prediction. We all know Conor could sweep all the titles if he wanted to/didn't have a broken foot/was motivated/had a proper training camp/didn't have insomnia.

    Hahahaha, I laugh to myself with this point knowing, quite sadly, that you're 100% correct..... And it's very shitty imo.
