Conor needs to fight the winner of the Gaethje/Cerrone fight, that would be the logical next step back to a title shot. Tony fights the winner of Khabib/Dustin.

I mean, Weili Zhang is getting a title shot because she's Chinese and just happened to win a couple fights. Dana shot down #7 Michelle Waterson as being too low-ranked but #6 Zhang is fine because China! Expect more of that in the future, too.
Basically, MMA is dead and we as a society are fucked.
Dude I am psyched for the Zhang Andrade fight. Both women are absolute killers who fight aggressively and have the power to finish with strikes and submission prowess to finish that way
With that said
You are 100% correct. Saying Watterson is too lowly ranked but giving a title shot to another girl who is ranked lower is beyond hypocritical. Dana does not even try to hide it anymore
It's strange how the UFC always goes to China within a few weeks or a month after One Championship does. Askren headlines an mma event for One in mainland China and the UFC is there 3 weeks later, i guess they are using them as a test market or something idk
Its dumb Zhang gets the title shot but the fight itself will be awesome most likely and filled with violence
Dana should have just said Michelle won't get the title shot because "we have big plans for Andrade in China! stay tuned!" and really the hypocrisy would not have been existent like it is now.
