Dustin needs to fight again though. Can’t get a instant rematch with Khabib.Dustin deserves it more than Conor imo.
Dustin's 9 of 11 since returning to lightweight, and his loss to Khabib wasn't horrible. versus Conor lost 2 out of last 4, not really looking like beating Khabib at any point in that fight.
Comparing Conor's and Dustin's efforts
-dustin had more(not a lot, but probably more) success on the feet
-escaped the same neck crank that Conor got submitted to
-had khabib in some trouble with a guillotine
in conor's favor he got into the 4th round, however one could argue Khabib was more concerned with embarrassing Conor with striking and ground n pound than submitting him earlier
If Conor beats Cowboy;
I’d like to see McGregor v Poirier #1 contenders fight - winner gets Khabib/Ferguson at the end of 2020.
