    If he jumped over someone like JG ok but the truth is that theres a massive hole in the LW division and no contenders.


    I’m not saying that LW isn’t a deep division because it obviously is but its not like WW where you have 2-4 guys who could legit ask for a title shot and be deserved.



    I say give Conor another titleshot and lets see if he still has it.


    (After Khabib-Gaethje of course )<Fedor23>)

    Hooker deserves it more.
    And if Gaethje wins, Poirier deserves it more.

    He hasn’t fought at LW since losing the Khabib fight

    Because he doesn't fight and him getting these title shots just shows what a circus the ufc is. They coddle their money makers and the competition for the belt simply isnt fair. Guys like Conor can win a belt in one or two fights where other guys have to win 10 fucking fights in a row.

    Oh yeah HE HASNT FOUGHT AT LW SINCE HE LOST

    I think Conor should get all the title shots.

    He has one win at LW which he got over three years ago, he's just unproven in the division.

    He should fight Tony for the next shot.

    Probably because he lost pretty badly the last time he went for the title, and his only win since is against a #12 ranked fighter.

    In fact, since the Cerrone and Diaz fights were all at welterweight, Conor doesn't technically have a single win at LW besides Alvarez four years ago. So...how about he actually gets a win at lightweight before fighting for the title?

    He didn't earn his first title shot at LW and he certainly hasn't earned a second.

    Twice. He could then have like 24 belts, and not bother defending them.

    He also has way more twitter followers than fighters have. Not going to mention his bank account.

    Hooker is fighting Dustin in the summer, so if he beats the #2 guy Conor can just leapfrog him coming off a win over two losses in a row Cowboy in another division?

    And what if Tony fights and beats Dustin or Da Bronx or Felder? Conor still skips ahead? its nonsense.

    What's Tony like 12-1 there lately? Make him fight Ferg. They both lost their last LW fight. Conor doesnt deserve the shot anymore than him but we all know it'd be a cold day in hell before that happens. Maybe theyll bring back BJ Penn for Mcgregor.
