I see this as keeping his job. My issue is that after the title fight there is no clear #1 contender...which works for no one except McGregor. Good grief I didn't want to bring the dude up again, but the McGregor effect is real.
Would Dana and the UFC make this an interim belt? Who the fuck knows what Conor has planned for his future. All this talk about him vs Floyd. It's awesome we got to witness him winning 2 belts simultaneously but it's also a little unfair to the rest of the LWs.
If the UFC has its way they'll make the Holloway-Pettis an Interim Title fight, strip Conor and give Aldo the FW title until they can figure out what the hell Aldo is doing. Then totally make the Nurmagomedov-Ferguson fight happen with the winner getting a crack at Conor. The LW division is pretty deep and I can't see there being a problem with coming up with more contenders.
