Michael Chandler is just a few months away from entering one of the biggest fights of his career. In terms of progress, a win won’t mean much, but the fame and fortune that he is going to secure will be weighty and unforgettable.

As far as confidence is concerned, Michael Chandler has no doubts in himself and foresees an embarrassing night for McGregor. The chances for this fight to happen at lightweight are quite slim, but we will find out more about it in the following weeks.

Michael Chandler on fighting Conor McGregor

In a recent YouTube video, Michael Chandler explained how size is not going to be an advantage in his upcoming fight against Conor McGregor. “I don’t believe that size is an advantage,” Chandler said as quoted by mmafighting.com.

“I would stay the same exact weight I am right now and I would just eat a little bit more and have the same camp so I can still get just as shredded as I looked like at 155, fighting at 185. He is not stronger than me.

So, I don’t need to gain weight, I don’t need to gain any more strength, I don’t need to do any more than what I’m already doing. The dude is not stronger than me”.

“He’s not stronger than me, I hit harder than he does, I’m not worried about size in this fight, because he and I are relatively within three to five pounds of each other.

So, if you think I’m going up to 210 to cut down to 185, it ain’t gonna happen. I’m gonna be the same guy, foot on the gas, trying to end the fight at every single moment, and ultimately end his reign as the Conor McGregor that we — a lot of people have lost faith in, but there’s still a lot of believers that want to see his comeback. I will go ahead and sour the night on June 29”.
