Michael Chandler believes he is going to beat Conor Mcgregor in a dominant fashion and is already lining up fights against 2 top fighters

Michael Chandler believes he is going to beat Conor Mcgregor in a dominant fashion and is already lining up fights against Colby Covington and Nate Diaz.

Conor McGregor and Chandler have finished filming for season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter, and are set to fight each other this year. In an interview with Brendan Schaub, he spoke about how he is going to win the fight and dominate McGregor, predicting a second-round KO. Schaub then asked him if he would stay at 170lbs, to which he replied:

“I wouldn’t be opposed to it….If it’s a title shot, obviously, but it’d have to be the right match-up at 170. Colby would be a good fight, you know I would love that Colby fight. I loved the idea of the Masvidal fight, I wish him well in retirement, I loved that fight. (Nate) Diaz, I’m sure Diaz will end up coming back and he’ll fight at 170. There’s some cool, big, fun fights out there.”

Michael Chandler’s main aim is to get a title shot next if he beats Conor McGregor, whether that comes at lightweight or at 170lbs. Chandler is willing to fight whoever has the belt since he believes he deserves a title fight.
