    Where does he go from here?

    Another long layoff?

    Rubber match with Nate Diaz?

    He’ll have to keep promoting Proper 12 so he can’t afford a long layoff. Part of his new UFC contract gives Proper 12 ad space in the Octagon for every event Conor is part of, meaning the more often he fights the more promotion Proper 12 gets.

    He’ll fight Diaz next for sure. It’s the fight with the biggest upside and lowest downside for him.

    I think if Diaz looses against Poirier, a lot of the shine is going to come off that fight.

    If I were him, and I'm not for the record so stop dm'ing me, I would do a super fight tour.

    GSP, Anderson, Diaz. Freakshow MMA contained for big prize money. Leave the belts out of it and leave legit contenders out of it.

    That would be fun for us, but I don’t think he will ever get near Aldo again. There’s zero chance he can improve on the results and subsequent mystique generated by their first fight, so it is only potential downside for Conor IMO.

    With all the BS after this fight he really has only 3 legit options, and 3 not-so-legit options:

    Legit MMA options:
    1) Rubber match with Diaz, the shit talking alone is worth booking this fight
    2) Rematch Khabib. Non-Title, and do it quickly, like SuperBowl week
    3) fight an out-of-contention superstar (Aldo, GSp, Anderson)

    Not-So-Legit options:
    1) retire until his UFC release then fight a "fixed" fight for another org
    2) comeback in 18-months calling out whatever should be retiring soon star (Frankie Edgar, Gil Melendez come immediately to mind)
    3) go full WWE with this side-show, and have McGregor vs CM Punk

    I agree, but I still want to see it. So many people just brushed him to the side after that fight. Depending on how you scored the rematch against Diaz, you could make the argument that Conor is 1-3 in the UFC since he tagged Aldo. That outlandish schtick isn’t going to stick around if he can’t back it up.

    Gotta give it up to the crazy sonofabitch for always wanting to fight the guys who maul him. He wants Khabib again, but will get Nate III. Tony is fighting Khabib next granted Khabib is going to be allowed to fight any time soon, who knows what the commission will do.

    Khabib vs Tony
    Conor vs Nate III

    If Dustin wins then he is the rightful #1 contender (after Tony) and should get the winner of Khabib vs Tony. If he wants to take a fight before then, then I guess Kevin Lee who is ranked in the top 5.

    I wanna see him fight Frankie Edgar @ any weight.

    He needs to stay away from the Woodley fight. If Khabib wrestle fucked him to death, Woodley would really take him down at will. He seriously stands no chance with Woodley.

    Woodley could sign a waiver promising not to attempt a takedown and he would still beat his ass.
