    Problem is the perception is, lost to cruz and ran into a new weight class that gives him no competition. Johnson was kicking ass before he fought cruz.

    Skill wise/martial artist wise he is without doubt in the conversation.

    Personally, i think he can't beat any of cruz, cody, or tj.
    I'd love to see DJ vs. Joanna. LOL Same weightclass, right?

    I agree, I think those guys are all on a different tier of fighters, though, regardless of what their weight class is.

    I think if I were to rank tiers in terms of skill/ability:
    If you think I'm wrong, I'm definitely open.

    Tier 1: GSP, Jon Jones, Conor, Khabib, Cormier, Woodley, Diaz brothers, Nunes, Cyborg
    Tier 2: Dillashaw, Cody, Cruz, Dj, Aldo, Miocic, Holm, Joanna
    Tier 3: Kevin Lee, Gaethje, Wonderboy, Ngannou, Alvarez
    Tier 4: all the flyweights lol

    I didn't include everyone, just people off the top of my head that are relevant to me right now.

    Goddamn, DJ is my favourite fighter, if he fights the bantamweight champ and wins, I think that cements him in the G.O.A.T conversation.

    I think that is a happy money fight gift to dustin for having to wait for khabib to smash connor. Setting up two good future cards.

    Khabib/porrier
    Connor/diaz 3

    Or it can go porrier/connor if connor somehow wins against khabib. Really good future options there for 155 fights.

    I don't think diaz will fight khabib though. They would move lee up.

    I think porrier beats diaz pretty badly because diaz will let it be a boxing match.
    Yeah, I think a Kevin Lee fight is waiting in the wings somewhere. He's bound to fight any of those guys, personally, I'd love to see Lee/Diaz at 170. Diaz obviously has the advantage fighting there for a big part of his career, but that'd be an insane fight.

    Also, side note, someone get Gaethje in another brawl, I love watching him go at it. I still can't believe he attempted a fucking rolling thunder. Love it.

    I wanna see that money fight of DJ and winner of Garbrandt/Dillashaw. I think that'd be fun.
