    Not happening
    Nate needs to let his brain swelling comedown and they already said a 3rd fight will be at 155.

    Plus there's nothing in it for McGregor now. He has proven his point

    Diaz of course wants it, he either gets 2 mill fighting McGregor or 10 cents fighting someone else. McGregor wants belts and big match ups.

    Diaz will retire and rightly so with a good bank account

    Alvarez. Doubt he can make 145 without damn near killing himself. I think they'll let him fight Alvarez and keep his belt for the time being so they can hype it up as Champion v.s Champion.

    Smart move would be to fight Edgar at 145, hopefully beat him and retire as the GOAT at that weight class. Move up, beat Alvarez, and then face Nate again.

    I think the UFC will do Conor-Alvarez for the 155 belt but it's a complete joke that Conor still hold the 145 belt.

    As soon as the fight at 155b is announced than Aldo will become the full champ at 145lbs thats gotta be a no brainer surely

    Hopefully Diaz 3 at 155 or Alvarez. GSP dominates him mercilessly at 170. It's really a great fight for GSP to come back, register a huge win and then disappear again with an increased legendary status.

    Rubber match. Nothing is 'proven' when you're knotted 1 apiece, unless the rematch was a blowout early knockout or something.

    It's not happening next according to White, It's either going to be a rematch with Aldo or Alvarez for the LW belt. My guess is the latter.

    Kel I would almost guarantee the UFC will let Conor keep his 145 belt while he challenges Alvarez for the 155 belt therefore IF he wins he can say he holds two weight division titles at the same time. It's getting laughable really. Aldo will probably defend his interim belt against Holloway I would presume.

    Interim belts should ONLY be used when the champion is out injured and can't defend NOT because the champion is having 1,2, then 3 different fights outside his weighclass. The ufc is turning into boxing with this BS. What next will they allow champions to force catchweights for title belts like Canelo in boxing.
