My point wasnt to try and justify that McGregor should be the legitimate champion, just the logical contradiction that some how Khabib is an illegitimate champion because he never beat Tony but Tony is legitimate despite never beating Conor.

In terms of quality of opponent...Al Iquinta holds a win over Lee...it was awhile ago...but Al is still a solid fighter.

So either both were legitimate champions or both were paper champs....



Yeah I agree with this. If one applies this to Khabib one must also apply it to Tony.

Conor is indeed undefeated in title defense. 0-0. Not even an attempted title defense in Cage Rage for fucks sake :lol: :lol: I will gladly take advantage of a champion having balls to give me the chance to win their belt but I damn sure will not reciprocate when I have the belt :lol:
Officially 6-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 5 time A league champion. :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold:

YES. Tony never lost and Khabib never beat a guy holding the belt. The current Lightweight Championship is in "paper status" right now.
Good for Khabib recognizing his status can ONLY be legitimized by facing Tony Fergusen.


Tony also never beat a guy holding the belt...so he is also a paper champion, and the real champ is Conor McGregor.


True, but he would have. Conor essentially abandoned his title AND the sport. Waiting for him to abandon his child next

Tony would have defended...I dont mind Khabib getting a belt especially considering everything surrounding the event...but they should not have stripped Tony.

As long as someone fights for the title it's cool with me. All of this money fight and pulling out shit is killing the division.
