    If Islam can keep active, 3 fights a year then he could well be fighting for the vacant title once Khabib retires.

    I only count 4 serious contenders for the belt: Tony, Poirier, Gaethje and Islam.

    They might do Tony vs. Conor for the belt. Or Justin vs. Conor. Prob. Conor vs. somebody.

    Dana hates Tony and loves Conor. He'd love for Conor to be champion again. Conor's best chance among the top 5 is probably against Poirier, so he'd try to set up the rematch.

    Islam Makhachev easily

    The best defensive fighter in the UFC

    Conor and Tony will both be in their mid thirties when Khabib's retired, heck Tony allready is.

    So my vote goes to Islam; the other guys listed won't be champ ever. Paul Felder ... gtfo

    Shit poll. The correct answer is Islam. There's a reason why everyone and their dog in the top 15 are ducking him.

    He's not a defensive fighter, lmao, he just has great defense.

    I like all of these guys. But I think Islam is the most likely.

    Tony: 35 years old. Probably won't be fighting in 5 years. Probably won't be at his best in 2.

    Poirier: considering retirement already. Probably gets beat by Islam the same as Khabib. Shows a major weakness to wrestlers.

    Gaethje: has taken way too much damage. He's gotta retire sooner than later if he wants to have brain cells left

    Islam is my pick

    Tony is going to beat Khabib in his next fight imo.
