  • Masvidal fighting Usman is in conors favour if masvidal wins. Conor has more of a chance to win. Not taking anything away from masvidal because he can adapt better the other styles then what conor can. If conor fights masvidal it will just be a war. If he fight usman he will have to avoide the takedowns but in saying that its a good test if he wants khabib because usman is a better all rounder then khabib.

    • @Ailsa Ni Um i have a pretty good idea actually. The first straight punch conor did against cowboy would have been a huge mistake against a wrester like usman or khabib. That was an out there opening for a double leg takedown. Conor was lucky cowboy wanted to stand and fight otherwise it could have been a differant story.

  • How about a fight Between Gamebread vs Conor for a double belts. Winner takes BMF and intrim lightweight belt. Winner fights for the real belt against Usman. If Conor wins both fights he gets rematch that Dana desperately wants with Khabi. Another double belt match. Khabi desperately wants to be great champion. Good way to prove it..

  • Ariel quit asking stupid questions about clothing.. Dana getting in the way again.. No one wants a Khabi rematch. I love Cowboy, but he was picked for beating for a reason. Rather see great fights like Masvidal or Gaethje vs Conor.

  • The Masvidal fight makes sense because of Conor loses he can fight Gaetje before Khabib, but if he beats Masvidal then it still keeps the Khabib fight open AND other options at WW. Win or lose it does not ruin the image of the Conor Khabib rematch

  • I'd prefer Conor stay at 155, fight Gaethje, that would be an amazing fight. Masvidal/Usman works for me, but if Conor wants to get whooped by Masvidal it would be fun to watch. If Conor somehow won he'd be in a bad position, having to face Colby or Kamaru would be bad news. Better he stay at 155 where he's a top level contender.

  • Jorge Vs Conor, stylistically, would be the best fight right now in the UFC.

  • The only thing I’d say to Masvidal is “don’t get let Conor get in your head” because I think in the build up to that fight Conor will run his mouth so much, getting all the attention, Jorge may be pissed off a little.. which I hope doesn’t distract him from his mission..

  • This has Dana White pulling strings behind the scenes written all over it. Dana is keeping Conor away from Masvidal bc it’s too big a risk and could put a mega fight with khabib in jeopardy. Prior to this masvidal was game to fight Conor and now all of a sudden he’s saying that Conor doesn’t want it even though he said he would fight. He has probably told masvidal to let it slide for now and focus on Usman.

    • No doubt.. that’s why they’re pushing the Diaz fight.. and possibly not even the main Diaz, but his bro who wants a similar payday..
