@PlusmoneyGod

I would agree with you, were it not the welterweight division at this time. Covington is now lined up for the title shot, and the next top contender spot (assuming Usman wins again, which I believe he will) hangs between Luque and Durinho. The other two guys in the top 5 (namely Thompson and Edwards) are in no shape for a title fight right now. 

If I were the matchmaker, I would force Luque and Burns to fight after (and again, if) Usman beats Covington.

Speedo424 Luque will get the next title shot, Burns will fight Leon or Masvidal. You cant force anyone to fight anyone, and the UFC won't try. "Yea Nate Diaz .. we need you to fight Nick Diaz bcuz you know... stagnation of the division... so what you're brothers and care about each other. We are forcing you to fight"... imagine that haha


just please don't say this again when Aljamain refuses to fight Merab or Gastelum refuses to fight Uriah Hall or Vettori or even Strickland maybe. Relationships are important in fighting just like everywhere else my guy

Ciryl Gane vs Anybody



The Great Gane moneyline. I'll first admit this is a much less sophisticated Ngannou but unfortunately this is a much less sophisticated Ciryl. My take: Fernand Lopez is coaching Francis because A) Francis was likely the emphasis of the sparring because he was the bigger fighter; it's likely Francis's camp (hard sparring would usually happen in a camp) and Ciryl was the "training partner" B) Sorry to say Francis needed it ATM and Ciryl didn't. Ciryl is not even trying to land on him. BUT HE STILL COULD AT WILL HAHAHA. Ciryl is SOON TO BE THE BEST HW IN THE MMA HISTORY. Ngannou better try to rekindle that Jon Jones fight so he can get a title defense.
