Why is Conor’s return legendary?

The last time the Irishman lost to Dustin Poirier, he broke his leg in the fight. After that, Conor recovered and then simply went on a spree: parties, scandals, alcohol, all in the best traditions of McGregor. At the same time, during his recovery, the Irishman gained significant weight and clearly did not look like a lightweight. Therefore, a possible fight with Chandler, which has been talked about for a year, was questioned, but Dana White announced that the fight would take place in the welterweight division, which of course would play into his hands. to Conor.

Overall, everything in this fight comes down to a favorable return for McGregor. Chandler is the ideal candidate for Conor to quickly make up lost ground. Michael is known for making tough exchanges without thinking, he likes to cut his stance, and this will work in the Irishman’s favor: McGregor can easily catch Chandler with his trademark left hand. The power in Conor’s fists has not disappeared, nor has his fighting intelligence.

And considering the fact that Michael fell and was knocked out many times, the Irishman has a good chance of doing it again. McGregor was not given anyone to fight Conor. Dana has prepared the ideal option for his favorite: McGregor defeats Chandler, takes his place at the top and beats everyone in the title race.

McGregor himself understands that this is the ideal plan and an opportunity for a phenomenal comeback. But a defeat for Chandler will end all prospects for the Irishman and could be Conor’s last fight. Therefore, McGregor is charged and motivated like never before.

The Irishman missed the octagon. During his absence, Conor healed all of his injuries, gained muscle mass, and became even more dangerous. Yes, the speed that McGregor had as a featherweight disappeared, but physical power was added, of which there was already a lot. Conor was already returning after a long break. In 2018, he lost to Khabib and was in the shadows for a year and a half. After that, the Irishman triumphantly knocked down Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds and instantly regained all the lost ground. And then Conor also went back to welterweight. Doesn’t it remind you of anything?

Adding to Conor’s motivation is the fact that few people believe in his successful comeback. Yes, they may believe in a victory over Chandler, but they don’t believe in a full return to the top. The Irishman loves to surprise, surprise the public, he is a master at this. Therefore, Conor will be ready to show that it is too early to rule him out.

And a win over Chandler will really open all the doors for Conor. Dana White may allow him to fight Leon Edwards for the title in the third weight class; After all, this is a historic event for the organization. Here you can talk a lot about the fact that Conor didn’t really fight in the welterweight division and what kind of title fight we can talk about. But this is McGregor, there are no rules for him in the UFC.

There is Islam Makhachev, with whom there is a backstory, and the fight with the Russians could well become the highest-grossing fight in history. I agree that it would be much more interesting to see Islam fight Conor than anyone else in the lightweight division, be it Poirier, Tsarukyan or anyone else.

In any case, Conor has excellent prospects if he wins, and this also adds motivation to the Irishman. The only thing left to do is win.
