    Masvidal fighting Usman is in conors favour if masvidal wins. Conor has more of a chance to win. Not taking anything away from masvidal because he can adapt better the other styles then what conor can. If conor fights masvidal it will just be a war. If he fight usman he will have to avoide the takedowns but in saying that its a good test if he wants khabib because usman is a better all rounder then khabib.

    • Ryan Morgan

      @Ailsa Ni Um i have a pretty good idea actually. The first straight punch conor did against cowboy would have been a huge mistake against a wrester like usman or khabib. That was an out there opening for a double leg takedown. Conor was lucky cowboy wanted to stand and fight otherwise it could have been a differant story.

    How about a fight Between Gamebread vs Conor for a double belts. Winner takes BMF and intrim lightweight belt. Winner fights for the real belt against Usman. If Conor wins both fights he gets rematch that Dana desperately wants with Khabi. Another double belt match. Khabi desperately wants to be great champion. Good way to prove it..

  • ben cantu

    Ariel quit asking stupid questions about clothing.. Dana getting in the way again.. No one wants a Khabi rematch. I love Cowboy, but he was picked for beating for a reason. Rather see great fights like Masvidal or Gaethje vs Conor.

    This guy sold out! I get it he wants the cash cow to get paid. But why you had to sell out & still failed. He should of come on here and said the fight was rigged against Coward/Cowboy that would of got under Conors skins. Instead he wears his used Robe to try get some clout! Wasteman!!

  • EPSTomcat11

    This guy is sharp. And he'd destroy Conor. Dana won't let it happen, and Conor doesn't really want that fight despite what he says.

    The Masvidal fight makes sense because of Conor loses he can fight Gaetje before Khabib, but if he beats Masvidal then it still keeps the Khabib fight open AND other options at WW. Win or lose it does not ruin the image of the Conor Khabib rematch

    I'd prefer Conor stay at 155, fight Gaethje, that would be an amazing fight. Masvidal/Usman works for me, but if Conor wants to get whooped by Masvidal it would be fun to watch. If Conor somehow won he'd be in a bad position, having to face Colby or Kamaru would be bad news. Better he stay at 155 where he's a top level contender.

    The only thing I’d say to Masvidal is “don’t get let Conor get in your head” because I think in the build up to that fight Conor will run his mouth so much, getting all the attention, Jorge may be pissed off a little.. which I hope doesn’t distract him from his mission..

    Conner is irrelevant to the top draw fighters, got nothing to offer. Plus if Conner goes up against Jorge or Usman he will tap out, just like he did with Nate and Kahbib.

    Give Al his suit back. We all know the real gangster had a pile full of snow in his face instead a mouth full of pizza.

  • ProJoshkid

    This has Dana White pulling strings behind the scenes written all over it. Dana is keeping Conor away from Masvidal bc it’s too big a risk and could put a mega fight with khabib in jeopardy. Prior to this masvidal was game to fight Conor and now all of a sudden he’s saying that Conor doesn’t want it even though he said he would fight. He has probably told masvidal to let it slide for now and focus on Usman.

    • Lee SOG

      No doubt.. that’s why they’re pushing the Diaz fight.. and possibly not even the main Diaz, but his bro who wants a similar payday..
