    Yep, he's so far ahead of anyone else in the sport with his self-promotion and marketing.

    Difficult now tho. Unless he gets back on the horse and avenges himself he’s finished, no one wants to side with, take advice from, or be marketed by a loser.

    As soon as he is done with MMA he will follow Rousey to the WWE where he can talk all the shit he wants. The guy knows where he is headed.

    Exactly what I think. Losing to Khabib really hurt his rimage. Instead, he could have retired after probably the biggest event in combat sports history, in what was a pretty admirable loss to Mayweather given the circumstances. Connor's a very good fighter, but could have fooled enough people to talk about GOAT status if he hadn't lost to Khabib.

    Has the main stream fan base which is what WWE is all about though. He doesn't even need to be an active wrestler. Let him be a big guys mouth piece.

    What does outside the cage have to do with fighters rankings? Surely they should be based purely off results in the octagon.

    It's just from the bushmills still isn't it?

    Need to win a fight
    Wants a rematch with khabib badly, really badly
    Has to wait for the hearing in Nov then he can see about getting a fight
    Must fight someone decent and must win
    Dunno who tho, Ferg should get khabib so McGregor is still at 3 with Poirier at 4, do we need to see that again 5 years later or he gives Diaz a third even though nate is only just in the top 10?

    Man, the pressure on him for the next fight is insane. If he loses, that's 3 in a row. That's legacy-tarnishing stuff. Too bad he's too proud to fight some jobber.

    He’s not getting Khabib so you’d be surprised if he doesn’t get a “favorable” match up (Poirer, Diaz etc.)

    I wonder how he would look against Kevin Lee. He is another strong wrestler proved in his last fight against Barboza. If Conor could beat him would give him some credit going into a rematch with Khabib.

    Based on how the Khabib fight went, I would imagine he'd avoid Lee if at all possible. He's showed a similarly controlling ground style, but with better stand up and a strong double leg. His chin has let him down on a few occasions so Conor could definitely catch him.

    I did think of lee but he is ranked 4th
    Only thought of Nate because of the whole trilogy thing

    Lee would be a decent fight
    There's no one else is there?
    I mean what's the point of fighting Silva, if he won that how does that earn him another shot against khabib?

    Rubbish. He'll never be finished - history's littered with losers.

    Never, no matter what - will people stop watching or listening to him.

    Unfortunate, but true.

    Does anybody think losing is hurting his fight sales ergo his ability to pick and choose whoever he wants to fight? As long as he keeps making the company money (win or lose is irrelevant in their eyes) he will continue to be the tail that wags the dog in the UFC.

    Would love to see Cowboy land one of his matrix style headkicks on McGregors face

    Cowboy's trying to get on the year end card and McGregor's going before the NSAC in mid December. Don't think that will be his next fight unless Conor gets off without a suspension and is willing to take a fight early next year.

    Having said that, if it's next I'd watch the shit out of that too. Great matchup!
