Rise of UFC 2020 and 2021
Arman in 2020 I hope he fights the top 15-20 Lightweights like Drew Dober, David Teymur, Francisco Trinaldo.

Contender and Title Challenger 2022
Rematch against Islam Makhachev in a Lightweight Title contender fight can begin 2022., Two of the best grapplers in the UFC if Islam isn’t a UFC Lightweight Champion by now.
Contender fight for Arman can be fighting Kevin Lee. Arman vs Kevin Lee be a sick fight as Kevin Lee will be in the prime of his career hopefully growing as a fighter, Coached by Firas Zahabi.
Last Contender Fight option is fighting Dan Hooker if he’s still fighting.
If Arman can defeat Islam or Kevin Lee he deserves a title fight against Tony Ferguson.
Believe by 2022 Khabib will retire and the next Lightweight Champion will be Tony Ferguson as he continues to become one of the best fighters of all time.
Facing a wild Tony Ferguson but can grapple his way to victory, Too strong for Tony. Helps facing an older Tony Ferguson helps as well.

Fighting Rising lightweights like Luis Pena, Steve Garcia, Nasrat, Brad Riddell. Fighting twice a year becoming one of UFC Stars.
Personally with me Arman will be dominating his opponents because of his wrestling but expect fireworks when he fights his future rival Islam Makhachev.
Trilogy fight between Islam vs Arman will be one of the best fights in UFC history as you can see Arman lose again to Islam.
Overall Arman will become one of the greatest Lightweight fighters of all time in his prime of his career. 27-32 years old, Five year run of greatness retiring on top.
