Even though the tough son of a bitch deserves it. I respect guys like Poirier because he's had his losses. But it's one thing to have a close loss here and there (like Dillashaw) and still think you're the best out there. Its another when you've been starched multiple times in multiple weight classes, knocked out cold, and yet you still continue an upward progression. He still has the balls to carry his confidence and continue to improve. I'll always respect Dustin for not letting the losses break him as a person or hold him back from his full potential. That said, in the current landscape... this dude is sadly not fighting for the title. It is pretty clear that Khabib wants to fight Conor. This is the most likely outcome at the moment. If Conor wins, you can expect a super fight against GSP or someone like Holloway at 155. There is a 0 percent chance McGregor rematches Dustin at LW. If Khabib wins, he's going to be booked to fight Tony. Everyone knows that fight needs to happen and if Khabib doesn't fight Conor, Tony is the next guy who is getting that fight. Furthermore, Dustin will have to fight someone like Kevin Lee to hold his spot at the top of the division. That's a tough ass fight for Dustin (I know many will disagree because you hate Lee and think with your emotions). If he loses that fight, he is knocked right back down the ladder. It must fucking suck to be a top 5 LW right now.
