UFС megastar Conor McGregor discusses coaching TUF against Michael Chandler

Conor McGregor says he does not have a problem with Michael Chandler.

Conor McGregor would have probably tried to get under Michael Chandler’s skin a few years ago.

Instead the UFC star insists he has ‘no issues’ with his fellow coach on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’.

However, all that respect will most likely got out the window as they start to spend more time in each other’s company in the coming weeks.

McGregor is currently filming in Las Vegas alongside divisional rival Chandler, before the pair square off in the Octagon later this year.

He has been involved in several high-profile clashes with numerous fighters over the years.

But this time ‘The Notorious’ seems determined to keep the peace.

“I like Michael, we’re blokes,” McGregor told The Mac Life.

“I posed with him yesterday. I’ve got no issues with him at all. I think he’s a good fighter.

“Coaching against him, I’m interested to see his coaching style. He’s more of an athlete type of a guy than a technical martial artist. I know he’s got some skills in the wrestling department, and he’s got some skills overall.

“But as far as the small, finer details, I’m interested to see. I’m happy where I’m at. It will be an interesting one to go against him on the show before I go against him in the fight.”

However, that won’f stop him from trying to take his head off when they do eventually fight.

“I think I’m just going to slice through him,” he added.

“I think I’m a little too slicy for him than anyone else he’s fought. A little too snappy and whippy. I think I’ll slice through him.”

McGregor also explained his biggest motivation for coming back after such a long layoff due to injury.

“To be immersed in the game, in the business and the company and to be around these young, hungry fighters that are coming up,” he continued.

“Put myself right in the mix and get back on the horse.

“That was my motivation and my reason for doing it, and also to give back to the game. To give my wisdom and my knowledge to the next generation, and then feed off that energy also.”
