    I guess John Kavanagh NOW knows why this fight WAS NOT for the belt. Dustin certainly deserves the belt but the problem is that he fought McGregor who nowhere close deserves the title fight, not alone the belt.

    John.. John.. Ok.. Dana is using the belt as leverage to get Khabib back. As long as Khabib has it .. there is a chance he will want to defend. Defending his belt is a strong incentive to fight again. If he were a challenger... the incentive is not as strong. Then of course once he decides to come back .. yep that is right good boy... he makes lots of money.. as does Connor.. and Dana.

    This isn't for a title because neither of them are champions and neither deserve a title shot . Both were given title shots against khabib and both FAILED , they tapped like bitches .💅🙊 If conor is so bad ass why is he cherry picking his fights , why choose to fight someone you already beat ? 👎 You want a title shot then go fight Charles Olivera , Olivera will murder conor 🤣

    It’s not for a title because Khabib rag-dolled Mcgregor and he is the undisputed champ and GOAT. Also, because Mcgregor has 1 win in 155 years ago and he has to go through Fergusson, Gaetje and Oliveira before he deserves a title fight. Hope that helps

    cuz they want the damn lightweight division to not get held up for 2 years (yes I know they did interims for khabib cuz his crap) but never fighting in 2 years is bad for a division. it's why you so so many move around, either to 145 or 170... it needs a champ that wants to fight.

    Why would Conor be a #1 contender at lightweight? His last LW win was against Eddie Alvarez in 2016 and he has lost 2/5 of his last MMA fights, the only thing he has is a win at welterweight against Cowboy who came in to that fight right after getting KOed 2 times back to back... Please dont turn the UFC into boxing we wanna see the best vs best not just money fights this guy is delusional thinking this should be a title fight lol

      @Tyler Nihiser @Tyler Nihiser now drama queen put your feelings away and listen. If khabib and usman are champions he would not be champion. One of the best who handled khabib the best you most be delusional more than his coach if you really believe that. And that he was training boxing excuse dont even try that and put that in the bin. It was more than a year after the boxing match.. . I know you a fanboy and you idolize him but if you saw masvidal vs usman and woodley vs colby . These stylematchups is very bad for fighters who try ko oppenents thats just facts. So just because he kos standup fighters and hurting them doesnt mean he does well against pressure wrestlers.

    Regarding Khabib vs Conor... 8.48 - 8.53 "Do you think it's a shame we don't get to see the rematch?" Kavanagh says "Yeah of course" whilst shaking his head (no gesture) and shrugging his shoulders. He doesn't wanna see Conor get mauled by Khabib again. He knows it's not the right fight for Conor. Excellent coach. Dustin is a favourable match up
