The entire world MMA community is always looking forward to the return of Conor McGregor. He may not be ready for battle, do not train, but this event will be as interesting as possible. There are many rumors about his future rival. No, this is definitely not Arman Tsarukyan, he has not yet deserved such a chance.
Now we’re talking about Michael Chandler and he’s going to be really cool!
Michael Chandler is a former Bellator lightweight champion who continues to reign supreme in the UFC. For Conor, he is stylistically very suitable: a basic drummer! There is another nuance, Chandler misses a lot and likes to cut himself on the rack, and this is McGregor’s way. Of course, Conor can fly, as it happens, but he has enough opportunities. There will be no fighting here. Also, Chandler has a huge fan base and good speaking skills, which will bring the fight rating to the right heights.
If the Irishman beats him, then he can safely claim a title fight with Islam Makhachev, unless the Russian loses to Alex Volkanovski.
McGregor’s name speaks for itself, he could be UFC champion again this year.
UFC president Dana White really needs high-profile fights and media champions. We can be sure that if Conor decides to fully focus on MMA, then White will do everything possible to get the Irishman to put on a championship belt again, and maybe not one.
McGregor vs. Chandler could take place in early spring.
Conor McGregor has 22 wins and 6 losses.
Michael Chandler has 23 wins and 8 losses.
