Tony should be ok, just needs to stop hanging out with Eddie Bravo and he'll return to normal in no time.

But seriously, I can't see him coming back from this anytime soon.

Just doing a quick look and a lot of the top ranked guys at bantamweight seem to be coming off loses. Marlon is the obvious choice but his opponent is a bit harder to choose. He has recently beat the 2-3 ranked guys. Pedro Munhoz is ranked 4th but other than Cody he hasnt really beat anyone that impressive to warrant a title shot.

Cody must also be filthy. If he didn’t fight like a maniac in the last fight he would be first in line for the title match and could argue he is undefeated considering both loses were against a cheat.

Funny how a championship fight like that is preventing a fight like McGregor v Cowboy from being the main event on a PPV.

Dana must be livid at TJ, first crushing Garbrandt twice, losing to Cejudo preventing him from killing the 125 division and now popping.
I hear what you're saying, but yeah, McGregor did get pretty much destroyed in his last fight and he's not a champion atm either.

You never know though, the UFC might bend their rules for Conor.

Only 3 possible title fights to make:

Marlon Moraes vs Henry Cejudo (if he moves up to BW)
Marlon Moraes vs Pedro Munhoz (only guy with a win record and win against former champ)
Marlon Moraes vs Frankie Edgar (if he moves down to BW)

Off the reports id say Tony’s days are done.. apparently thinking he’s had a chip put in his leg to monitor him, ripping the house apart and hasn’t slept for 3 odd days.
that is what happens when you let Eddie Bravo put ideas in your head
