    Cause CM is on maternity leave & UFC like to pull this interim bullshit to "guarantee" a title shot

    No, but Conor is a fake LW champ, would lose either to Khabib or Ferg

    Dana has changed his obsession from rematches to interim title fights.....basically every #1 contender fight is now for an interim title.

    Not like he's ever gonna defend. UFC just got him those belts so they could promote the whole 2 division champ nonsense.

    Interim belts are all the rage these days. They don't mean shit but who cares.

    This though tbh, they know that selling a fight to see who fights Conor is an easy way to make money.

    Because Dana knows what we all know. Conor suffers from Titledefencephobia.

    Because Conor is a paper champ and is running scared from Khabib.

    Because McGregor is "taking a break to look after his kid".*

    *Kid may or may not be born within the next six to ten months, during which one of Ferguson or Nurmagomedov question will be eliminated from title contention.
