Not looking to spam guys so don't watch if you don't want to

I happen to think this is quite an interesting point of discussion, how many 36 year olds can make a fresh run at the belt? Especially at Lightweight

What should Tony Ferguson do next career wise?

What will the UFC likely do with him?

Tony took a hell of a lot of damage in that fight, he's gonna need at least 6 months off for sure. Maybe return at the end of the year.

 

I'd like to see him take on Poirier for a #1 contender spot after Gaethje/Khabib is done.

 

McGregor can have the triology with Diaz and work it out from there, he's not earned shit with his inactivity.

 

What are your thoughts?

Hopefully Tony goes home and enjoys time off. He will fuck up Dustin imo.

I think Tony's as game as they come. He ain't a young man though so I hope we see him vs Gaethje again one day under different circumstances.

The only reason I would root against Gaejthe is because his manager is snitch rat Ali.

Im betting that once Conor accepts he is not getting a title shot he will try and get a fight with Tony. Conors management are very good at picking the most beneficial fight at the right time and they will have smelled blood in the water. Tony being Tony will probably bite and come back too early

The best fight for Tony imo would be Do Bronx.

Tony vs Do Bronx would be SICK.

 

Conor vs Street Jesus Masvidal, fuck the Diaz fight.

Depends on what happens this summer. Possibly Dustin, Khabib (If Khabib loses to Justin), Conor, or even Dan Hooker. Anyone in the top 10 could be an option.

tony is fine and will be fine -- personally i think he got into his own head -- doing two weight cuts and he has beaten everyone in the class but justin -- justin came in with a gameplan and stuck to it no one thought that would ever happen or that justin would have the cardio deep into the fight

I was thinking Ferguson would fight Poirier next, but idk why I have a feeling he won't be matched up against someone in the top 5 next. Charles Oliveira would be a fun match.

Tony deserves a Title shot and #1 Contender Status regardless of who he fights I think.

Oliveira/Poirier/Hooker are all good fights.

Khabib vs Charles would be interesting because of Da Bronx bjj pedigree. Charles would light him up standing but not sure if there would be enough on it to stop him.

Hooker would be awesome for the first 20 seconds til he got taken down and Kebob'd. No thanks to DP. Literally one of the lowest ranked rematches I want to see Khabib in. Nothing personal, just more interested in him vs others.

I like Oliveria but doesn’t have the heart to beat a top 5 Lightweight. If things don’t go his way early he will fold.

Tony is going to need at least a year off to take care of that broken orbital, his damaged morale and his mental health.

 

Ferguson vs McGregor would be a good fight when they both return.

Not a good match for CMac unless Tony wants to strike and go for upper thigh punches.

I think Conor should probably fight Masvidal next, as for Tony, it all depends how early he can come back. Poirier in a top contender fight would be great. It gives lots of options. Poirier vs Tony/Gaejthe rematch are great (if Gaejthe wins his fight). If Tony wins, then you have the options with Gaejthe/Khabib. The only one i am not really interested in, is Poirier vs Khabib, we saw that and it was not interesting. But if Conor does his fight and wins, then we can have Khabib vs Conor.

 This. Conor vs Jorge at 170lbs. Extremely interesting fight.

I think Conors odds vs Jorge are a lot better then people give him. Not sure if Jorge weathers a beating like Diaz (from a cardio perspective), but if he did and maintained cardio, he'd pull a Masdival vs Till 2.0 lol

Could totally see Conor busting up Jorge's knees or legs early and being quicker to the punch... could also see him getting clocked one really good one and fighting like a bitch after.

Roll of the dice.

Masvidal is too big in my opinion for McGregor. He is big, also for his division.
