    Let's say Khabib gets injured while preparing for his fight with Dustin at 242 and is out for around a year or so. Do you think Dana would strip him of the title or would he allow him to hold onto it for that long given that he's already gone a whole year without fighting?

    Nah...Khabib is the deserving Champ

    Unless Tony gets a real title shot as a result. That would be cool

    Not sure if he would but he should be. Can't let someone hold on to a title for almost 2 years and not defend.

    Yes
    They already have a interim champion

    If Khabib is unable to compete they would find a replacement and Doostin would fight that guy for the vacant title.

    Even though this sounds idiotic i wouldnt be surprised if they stripped khabib and made conor vs nate 3 for the title.

    Nah, it would obviously be Tony taking his place at UFC 242 and fighting Dustin for the belt. Dustin would be the lineal champ, too. The winner would fight Conor, though

    UFC would jump on that immediately and make Poirier vs Conor for the vacant title.

    Yes.
    But he gets an immediate title shot when he recovers.

    It would be Dustin vs Ferguson

    Also, Dustin would be the official champion, since that's how Interim Championships work.

    Oh, I know. My post was more a jab at how certain things work in the UFC

    Reeks of desperation. Too bad your boy is a .500 fighter at 155.

    The way he destroyed Alvarez says otherwise

    The way Khabib destroyed him says otherwise.

    He's literally a .500 fighter at 155 in the UFC.


    But then again, I'm arguing with a dude who didn't know who Jim Miller was, despite his two dozen UFC fights.

    You're the same clown who thought coming in 2 pounds UNDER the weight limit meant missing weight. You're the literal definition of a Conortard.

    Because Khabib is obviously an easy opponent to look good against, isn't he?

    That's right kid, you ignore your ignorance of MMA.

    You're an embarrassment to both Conor fans that have actual MMA knowledge.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Probably Conor vs. Dustin, especially since that's a relatively favorable matchup for Conor (although I think Dustin could give him problems). And if Conor won, he'd be on to the next money fight against someone not named Khabib.

    I don't think you know what "lineal champ" means.
