    Its pretty much guaranteed, here are the UFC 249 outcomes and scenarios:

    1) Khabib wins:

    a) He fights Gaethje next and retires after, UFC would make a LW title bought between Conor and either Justin or Tony

    b) He retires immediately after beating Tony, UFC would would make a LW title bought between Conor and either Tony or Justin

    2) Tony wins:

    a) UFC makes Conor vs Tony, Tony wont disagree and I dont blame him, he would take the money fight like just about everyone not named Khabib

    Either way Conor fights one of Tony or Justin before the end of the year, or in 1a) it might be just over a year.

    That option isnt there - he'll either retire or fight Justin.

    yeah, I read OP properly then edited my post.

    I think you could be right but not because KN retires but is stripped after being obstinate and refusing to face Conor

    It is sad that for legacy he wouldn’t move up to fight at 170, but I understand it.

    Khabib is not retiring after 249. He will most likely look for the GSP fight, if that doesn't work out, he'll go for Gaethje if he isn't already matched with Conor.

    Regardless of the results of UFC 249 I think Conor will try to fight Gaethje next. Dana's bullshitting that Conor will fight the winner IMO.

    He'll fight Tony for the title after Khabib loses to him, so i agree in essence.

    It’ll be interesting to see how he takes a loss. He seems like the kinda guy that might not deal well with it.

    I don’t care what Khabib does as long as he doesn’t retire at 29-0

    what kind of psychopath retires with 29 wins

    at least get the 30-0 before you call it a day

    Not well at all. Far too big of a narcissist.

    He might not deal with it well in the short term but i think he would fight his way to a rematch. Don't think it matters since he will beat Tony. Tony has been dropped, has been hurt, has lost and has been mounted by lesser fighters.

    Lol it would bother me too. Its weird because 31,32,33,34 etc would be just fine but 29 is way too close to 30.

    I don't see an easy fight from here. Conor will have only 40 seconds of octagon time in 2 years. He should seriously fight Justin or Diaz again but I'm not sure I see that happening.

    I guess. But really, who's left for Khabib at 155?
    We have:
    Gaethje and who else? (By this i mean without accepting rematches)
    Hooker?
    Felder?
    I don't even know who to consider.

    Khabib's only route to victory is humping Tony for five rounds to a decision. That's a long time to be on the ground with the best submission artist Khabib's faced by a mile. Remember how Askren vs. Maia went down? The only difference is that Khabib won't have the option of standing with Tony unless he wants his face to be a bloody mess within the span of a round.
