UFC icon explains why Michael Chandler could turn 'heel' ahead of Conor McGregor clash at UFC 303

After a lengthy wait, the Michael Chandler vs. Conor McGregor has finally received a green signal from UFC. ‘The Notorious’ will face the former Bellator champion in the main event of UFC 303 on June 29 during International Fight Week.

While fans eagerly await this explosive matchup, former two-division UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen believes Michael Chandler might be harboring some serious animosity towards McGregor, potentially turning him into a “heel” in the lead-up to the fight.

Speaking on the recent episode of the Good Guy Bad Guy podcast, Sonnen discussed ‘Iron’s’ situation and the long wait for the McGregor fight:

“I’m talking about heel, make no mistake. Michael Chandler is furious with Conor McGregor. He has not forgiven anything. He hasn’t forgiven having hands put on him two separate times during the Ultimate Fighter. He hasn’t forgotten that he has waited almost two years… And Conor’s telling him that I’m going to go 185, or I’m even going to go box Manny Pacquiao.”

He added:

“Chandler has been so reserved being nice, and many people will do that in a negotiation. They want to be nice until they get their way. He got his way and the bad guy is coming. Trust me, this guy is upset. He doesn’t care who knows now.”
