    Winner gets Khabib/Conor winner?

    Fuck, never mind. If Conor, Nate, Khabib are all at that presser tomorrow they’re all getting arrested and the fights will be canceled. False alarm.

    Where is an interim title when you need one? These dudes need 25 minutes.

    Nate only coming back for Conor must only work until he needs more black t shirts.

    I'm taking Dustin in this.

    Three rounds gives him a chance, but Dustin doesn’t do so hot against guys who can keep him at range. Nate’s got a 5-inch reach advantage and he uses it well. Poirier might get pieced up if he can’t land something big early.

    Dustin better crush that lead leg early, the blueprint is there, he doesn’t really have a choice, he doesn’t have the wrestling to blanket Nate or the power in his hands to cold cock him. Two of my favorites of the last 5 years, this should be good.

    I'm picking Dustin if this is a 3 round fight, although I hope Nate dominates. I love both guys, but Nate is the man. I really want to see him strangle Conor again.

    I'm taking Nate. I think he'll keep Poirier at range and pepper him.

    The winner has to get a title shot though right? Well I guess theres still Tony

    Wonder how much rust Nate has? You definitely don’t get better by not doing something.

    This fight should be on the card with conor/khabib just in case of an injury.

    Definitely! I just wish this was five rounds.

    Wonder what Diaz is making?
    --- Post Added -- Aug 3, 2018, ---
    So where is Tony in all this? I saw either a post on here, or on Facebook, where he was on a exercise ball swinging a sledge hammer. Seems like he is back. Maybe he could take on Pettis even though that is a step back for a guy who was the interim champ and never lost that.

    Good match up. Good match making.

    If Conor gets hurt, Poirier gets the nod to fill in for the title shot.

    If Khabib gets hurt, Diaz gets the nod to fill in for the main event and interim belt.

    I say let this be the main event. 5 rounds are better than 3, and lets see what kind of a draw Diaz is on his own.
