Although there is talk of Tony losing his edge, he is still No.5 in the division. As such, a good run now could very well see him contend for the title. For that, he will have to beat both Beneil Dariush and Nate Diaz, if they fight.

Even though he may claim to fight for 10 more years, we all know that it won’t be possible. Many predicted that Tony would hang up his gloves if he loses to Dariush. However, with Nate Diaz now in the mix, fans of ‘El Cucuy’ are not so worried.
