Michael Chandler on fighting Conor McGregor

During the recent press conference, Michael Chandler shared his thoughts on the much-awaited Conor McGregor fight.

“I think there’s no way he comes back to the UFC and doesn’t fight me,” Chandler said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “So if I do pivot, if there are other names being thrown out, if there are huge fights that I can go ahead and pivot and take, whenever he is ready to come back, his road back to the UFC goes straight through Nashville, Tennessee, and Michael Chandler — and that’s it”.

Michael Chandler predicts the outcome of his potential clash with McGregor

“Now, especially with the storyline, with the intrigue, waiting in the wings, the buildup, the marination of this entire thing, yeah, I think it’s going to be very satisfying when I make true on my word to show up whenever the next date is and knock him out.

It was going to be the second round and now he lit a fire under me, it’s probably going to be the first round”.
