The career of the most dangerous UFC fighter is in ruins. Instead of a fight with McGregor – oblivion

Chandler runs between potential rivals, but no one else needs him.

UFC 303 was a long time ago. The tournament promised to be unforgettable as everyone was eagerly awaiting the return of Conor McGregor. And his opponent was supposed to be Michael Chandler. But the Irishman’s injury prevented this showdown from taking place. Notorious withdrew, but a new opponent was never found for the American. But at the same time, Chandler himself has repeatedly said that he is ready to face any opponent. And now Michael is attacking everyone and desperately trying to save his fading career.

Pathetic speeches, minor injuries: McGregor is simply delaying his official retirement:

“This is a deep pain.” Conor leads everyone by the nose and has no intention of returning.

Chandler was well aware of what a fantastic opportunity the fight with Conor was for him. He would definitely receive a substantial fee, this fight was money. And this despite the fact that Michael has not entered the octagon for almost two years, and in three of the last four fights he stumbled. Therefore, the American diligently interrupted the fight with McGregor and did not want to be left on the sidelines. And yet, the Irishman withdrew. And most importantly, even Dana White cannot say for sure whether Conor will have at least one more fight in the UFC. In such a situation, it is becoming increasingly difficult for an American to wait.

It’s funny how exactly Chandler himself began to behave. He began to literally cling to any chance to play in the best league on the planet. And quite unexpected options sound out, the reality of which is hard to believe. For example, Michael himself said that he intends to fight with… Islam Makhachev. And he even named the specific tournament in which he was going to appear: “I was offered a fight with Islam Makhachev in October, but if Conor McGregor recovers from a broken little finger and is ready in September, I don’t mind fighting in the sphere of the biggest event in the history of sport.”

It is worth noting that this prospect initially seemed strange. It is highly doubtful that the UFC is ready to give a title fight to an athlete who has not entered the octagon for so long. Of course, we can cite the example of Stipe Miocic. But it seems that his track record is much richer and his status is higher. And Islam himself, despite the high expectations placed on the Sphere tournament, is unlikely to give up his favorite event in Abu Dhabi. Therefore, the champion’s response did not surprise anyone. He reacted very sharply to Chandler’s challenge.

“Friend, you are not trustworthy, one message from your master and you will run away. The champion needs a real opponent.”

Chandler did not rule out the idea of ​​fighting Makhachev. And he immediately tried to switch to another opponent. Now he is going to fight Nate Diaz: “I have an idea: me against Nate Diaz at UFC 306 at the Sphere. We will fight like real men and let Conor sit on his yacht and watch our fight on PPV.”

Unfortunately, the career of one of the most dangerous fighters in the UFC is literally falling apart. More recently, he terrified any opponent, was considered the ultimate rival and a great test of strength. But now no one takes Michael seriously. And the big problem was precisely that the American had been waiting for Conor for so long. He chose money and lost. Of course, McGregor himself could improve at UFC 306. And then Chandler will still have that long-awaited fight. But the question is what comes next. And there is still silence and uncertainty.
