Conor McGregor fails to back his words with actions, or in the present scenario, ‘tweets’. He has called out countless opponents during the span of recovery and time taken of the sport of MMA, yet he has successively failed to translate his words into action, and his return remains to be a huge cloud of fog as he hasn’t given any significant update on it.
McGregor called out Justin Gaethje recently, and Gaethje, in response, declined his offer to fight; McGregor was meant to make his comeback fight against Michael Chandler, but it looks like McGregor has something else in his mind.
However, Michael Chandler is confident about fighting against him next, and it will be interesting to see if the UFC can actually make this fight happen.
Michael Chandler on fighting Conor McGregor
In a recent interview with ESPN MMA, the lightweight contender Michael Chandler shared his honest thoughts on Conor McGregor calling out Justin Gaethje.
Chandler is confident about his fight with McGregor. “The beautiful thing about mixed martial arts is it’s the what have you done for me lately business,” Chandler said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.
“Everyone has a short-term memory and we all succumb to recency bias. So everyone’s like, ‘Man we just saw Justin Gaethje compete. He went out there and beat Dustin Poirier. Man, we want to see him fight this guy.’ Next week, there’s going to be another guy that has a great showing at any weight class and they’re going to want to see Conor fight him.
Chandler further said: “Conor’s going to get his little Twitter fingers going on the weekends every single time there’s a fight and insert himself into the conversation, but I’m not really that worried about it.
I believe the fight is happening. The fight makes too much sense for it not to happen. I’m still the most entertaining guy on the dadgum roster. Everybody wants to see (Conor have the) greatest comeback in combat sports history.
So I think it’s going to be me and Conor. That’s it”.
