    Conor can still lose 5 in a row, his record'd be still better than Nate's

    I don't think he has a lot of fights left in the sport to be honest. They use the 170lb excuse for his other loses. Gives him 2 more fights at 155 and if he fails he can retire and claim to be a 145 great who is rich. Thats the path i'm expecting him to take.

    After the fight uncle Dana will go to Conors house and see that he is obsessed with Nate and Conor is asking for another rematch and even Dana says F....k off

    No, there's no reason to do a third fight if he losses again.

    The funny thing is, do you think they'd set up a rubber match if he some how beats Diaz? I don't think they are showing Diaz any respect. For Conor its all about redemption, and proving last time was a mistake, and thats what the company has been spewing..I highly doubt they show Nate that respect, and he beat the guy on 10 days notice with little training.

    They confirm a lot of things that don't end up happening. It was confirmed that he'd defend his title after his first loss to Diaz, even.

    Nope. Will be forced down to 145 to finally defend his belt

    It probably will come to that, the more time conor McGregor spends above 145, the less likely he is to return to FW. A win over Diaz and his stock is back up, maybe he can use that to talk his way into a title fight with Alvarez, or there's always a third Diaz bout. Both scenarios are of course given Conor wins

    And if Conor does leave FW for good I don't see him using the weight cut excuse, he'll just say he already did everything he wanted in the division and has other career ambitions

    Gate keeper on paper, but if matched well he should do ok at lightweight

    He would probably have to defend the title first.

    Barboza and Ferguson probably do, but what are the odds conor McGregor fights either? I wouldn't write conor off so quick

    **Alvarez wasn't known as a big time striker and he took out RDA inside a round

    My issue is, you're talking in absolutes (saying all these guys would beat Conor, as if there's no other realistic option) but look at the Lightweight landscape at the moment, who's exactly going to be fighting McGregor?

    Champ Eddie Alvarez, has to make his first title defense. If I had to guess it would be vs Khabib or the Diaz/McGregor winner.

    #1 and #2 ranked RDA-Ferguson are fighting in November. #4 is Diaz. #5. Edson Barboza on a good streak and just beat Melendez, no way he gets anywhere near McGregor though. #6 & #7 Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis, neither fights at Lightweight. #8. is Dustin Porier who fights #10 Michael Johnson in September. And #9 is Michael Chiesa who knows when he'll return.
