If Khabib beats Poirier, Tony, GSP then retires...

Could Conor or any other lightweight currently fighting do anything in their career to surpass him?

Probably not.

Maybe Tony could pull something off. But, Khabib would have sealed his spot as the division’s all-time great.

Same for if Tony beats Khabib and racks up a few defenses.

I think if he beats poirier & Ferguson he's set

 

If poirier beats both he has a pretty good argument

 

As does Ferguson after beating both

 

Awesome division is awesome

I don’t think so. It would be pretty hard to top that to go along with his undefeated career.
