I still say if he jumps Gaethje for a shot at Khabib/Tony, the UFC is all but dead to me. This isn't WWE, and he should not get a 155 title shot for being Cerrone at 170 in his first fight back  over a guy who beat him at 155 while Conor was decking old men in a bar, ESPECIALLY after the way Khabib manhandled him. 

I can’t think of a possible worst match up for Gaethje than McGregor. McGregor would be arrested for murder after how badly he knocks him out. A wild striker will never ever stand a chance against Conor. He is the best power-counter striker since Anderson Silva, not that I’m saying he’s near Silva as a complete mixed martial artist.

I kinda believe that Conor is going to outclass Cowboy the same way he did Eddie Alvarez.  Gonna be too fast and too accurate.  I would love to see the upset, but it's hard for me to find a way for Cerrone to pull that off.

Agreed, I just dont see it happening

Where did I say anything about Conor being a good matchup for Gathje? I said that a guy who hasn't won in 3 years shouldn't get a 155 title shot with a win at 170 over a guy who is on a hot streak including a win over that opponent at 155. 

If the next fight they make is Gathje vs Conor, that works, and Conor probably wins, but at least it'll be fair as opposed to handing the guy a title shot because he's good on the mic.

Think this would be a good time to @Buckrock101 because I know he'll be as excited as I am.

@steelcurtain29

Hey, you closed my last MMA thread in April of 2018 due to the old forum rules of 100 pages and I lost my ability to update the OP with promotional champions and upcoming events. Can I make a new MMA thread so I can go back to doing so?

I'm so pumped. This is freaking huge news. The pessimist in me is expecting him to come in and get decisioned by someone like Ed Herman, but there's a case to be made he's better than any LHW in the world right now other than Jones.

conor's boring now 

Was a bit weird that he wasn't talk junk like usual. Weird to see him give cerrone props before the fight.
