I don’t get where he’s going with it if it’s contract negotiations though.. he just signed a new contract.. it’s too late for him to be trying that. Dana has one more big pay day from him if he loses the next fight/if he takes another fight.

McGregor's contracts over the years has been more about security for the UFC than it has been about how much money McGregor gets. Someone can correct if I'm wrong...I'm pretty sure his never seen out a contract that his signed. After every fight or 2nd fight he does a new deal with the UFC and that's because his popularity keeps going up and the UFC wants McGregor to keep signing new contracts so that no other combat organization can offer him big money or some billionaire fan offering him huge money to fight in Dubai for example.

That's commonplace for pretty much every fighter in the UFC though. They only let fighters they don't care about run down their contracts and reserve the right to opt out of contracts when ever they want.

If he loses his next he’s lost 3 of his last 5 UFC fights. Hard to promote someone who loses consecutive fights.
Cerrone manages to hang around when on some losing streaks. I think it's hard to judge Conor as a normal UFC fighter anyway, clearly he's one out of the box. Having said that Im sure they'd like him to win the next one well.

If he loses his next fight they probably go the trilogy with Diaz which will still sell through the roof.

Honestly no idea who is next for Conor though...

-Khabib instant rematch? Very Unlikely
-Ferguson? Would be pushing for a title fight. Very unlikely
-Winner of Holloway/Porier? Very unlikely would be a step back for the winner considering there fight is a #1 contender match
-Loser of Holloway/Porier? This or Diaz triology seems like the most likely scenario at the moment.
-Justin Gaethje... one from left field.

If Porier beats Holloway we could maybe see Holloway v McGregor for the featherweight title.

Donald Cerrone had 1 losing streak in his 46 fight career.

But Cowboy isn't on Conors megastar level but he is a bit like Conor in that he isn't really like many other UFC fighters

Gaethje is a good one. Exciting as hell and could actually surprise everyone. I also love Al Iaquinta. He deserves a big name again and beating McGregor could lock him in as the next best thing behind Ferguson for another shot at Khabib. I think with preparation, Ragin Al could maybe take him
