Michael Chandler has patiently waited for the golden opportunity; however, at this point, he thinks his patience is being tested. Chandler last fought Dustin Poirier in 2022 and has been inactive ever since, mainly because he was waiting for the McGregor fight to materialize.

Conor McGregor said that he will most probably show up in April 2024; Chandler believes McGregor is making him wait so that he can slip out of the fight and face an easier opponent like Nate Diaz. It will be interesting to see how long Michael Chandler continues to wait; sooner or later, he has to make a return.

2024 will most likely be the year when fans will get to see Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler.

Recently on Steve-O’s Wild Ride!, Michael Chandler explained why he thinks Conor McGregor is taking so long.

“I think right now he’s trying to wait me out,” Chandler said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I mean, because if you were him, would you want to wait as long as possible for the guy like me, who’s a real fighter, who wants to be in there, who wants to compete so that I say, ‘Screw it, I’m gonna go fight someone else’ and then he can go fight an easier fight: Nate Diaz.

It looks really bad on everyone’s part if Conor comes back and doesn’t fight me, Conor can try to come back and act like he runs the show and say, ‘I want to fight this guy, I want to fight that guy,’ which if I was in his position, if I was his manager, I would be trying to do the same thing because fighting me is not the smartest fight”. Conor McGregor is ready to make a boxing comeback, too. He wants to face Manny Pacquiao.
