Ortega hasn’t won a bout in over two years but stands on the precipice of a title shot.
Does Brian Ortega deserve a title shot with a win over TKZ? His last fight was a one-sided beating against Max and his last two wins prior are over now bantamweight Frankie and Cub who isn't even a ranked FW anymore.
Also, does TJ get an immediate title shot when he comes back?

How do you motivate top 10 fighters in 2 divisions with plenty to lose to accept a fight with Khamzat Chimaev?

When Islam Makhachev will get a frickin top-10 opponent??

It seems like Michael Chandler will get an immediate title shot in his UFC debut after Khabib vs Justin but who would be the perfect warmup fight for him?

If Chandler fights and beats Makhachev to become 'no.1 contender', do the UFC seriously push that as Khabib's possible retirement fight, provided he beats Gaethje? Over trying to make the GSP fight?

What’s more likely to happen first?
– Leon Edwards gets a title shot
– Jon Jones fights at HW
– Cejudo makes an unwelcome return

Does the UFC really even need Conor McGregor anymore? They have a few fighters who have massive potential to be superstars and cash cows for the company, who also don't give them as much of a headache.

I appreciate the MMA world’s use of the “you have nothing left to prove” phrase. It’s the kindest way of saying I think you should leave now. We need to use it across contexts. Firing someone? Breaking up with someone? Hook up won’t leave? Just tell them, nothing left to prove.
