    Going the interim route is silly with Khabib's words saying he's done, but yea I think it's possible they go that way too.
    I was wondering what would happen once rankings were updated. Looks like Tony is the one who gets the cut. As I said, no problem for me on that.

    Yeah I agree, I'd rather a full title as Khabib states he has retired but Dana still dreaming that dream lol

    UFC rankings are pretty consistent though and Chandler may not get top 4 after one win.

    On a personal level, no issue with Chandler being in a 4 man tournament. I think Dana will be looking to decide an interim champ at least in the not so distant future and I doubt Chandler will be in line for something like that.

    That said I'd rather see them just throw Dustin in with Oliviera for the belt instead of doing a tournament. Both got really good win streaks going on & never fought each other. Dustin has already beaten Justin even if it was awhile ago.

    Basically, top 4 lightweights are Dustin, Justin, Oliviera and Tony. Any 2 of these guys should compete for the vacant title.

    If cHandler continues, he can challenge next year.

    I can't argue against it. McGregor's head is turned. He's not committed to mma and he proved that with how he fought Poirier.

    I don't like the idea of Poirier wasting his time with Tony or Gaethje.

    Gaethje looked worse than Conor both against Khabib and Dustin. That's how bad Gaethje made himself look.

    Tony is just a non factor.

    I'd be down for Oliveira fighting Dustin but that has to be for the interim. Dustin can't be wasting time with meaningless fights after beating the biggest draw the UFC has.

    Na, Poirier v McGregor 3 doesn't make any sense right now. I think Gaethje and Oliviera are ranked higher and if Dana takes Khabib's retirement then those 2 should fight for a belt. Poirier v Ferguson should probably happen and then the winners fight and the best lightweights will all have fought for that belt.

    McGregor...he isn't cut out for this competitive division at his stage in his career.

    Dustin did a helluva job.

    I didnít think he was going to win

    But when I was watching and seeing Conor try to treat this match like a boxing match? I knew he was probably going to lose or at least look bad in a decision win.

    I donít mean that as throwing punches either. Conor literally looked like he was trying to box in a boxing ring. You see it clearly in his weird swings that led up to him getting put out. (I think he tried to body jab and then a weird overhand left)

    Dustin put it on him tho and thatís big praise deserving too. I donít know where he goes from here. I hope not some bs match with gaethje for a vacant belt. Despite Conor losing, Gaethje looked even worse than Conor gettin bopped by Dustin.

    Dustin-Conor 3 might be a play though. We saw it with Nate. Might see it here.

    He took that first round and was catching Poirier. The damage was done to his front leg from those kicks though and that was always going to be the beginning of the end. You could see how messed up it was in that final exchange.

    I always felt Poirier had a real chance, he's a top quality fighter on a good run. He's active and facing good competition, while McGregor is popping in and out of the sport. It's a big ask to do that.

    Good win for Chandler too on his UFC debut.
