Conor McGregor will fight Michael Chandler later this year in his return to the octagon after a break of over two years. The UFC hasn’t yet made a decision about the event’s date or location, though. On the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, the two will compete head-to-head as opposing coaches, and Mcgregor has ambitious pay-per-view targets for the match. Recently, “The Notorious” posted pictures of his first fight with his next foe Michael Chandler on Twitter. Following that, McGregor retweeted it and appeared to announce his fight’s pay-per-view target:
It’s easy to say that Conor McGregor is expecting a strong pay-per-view performance for his next matchup with Michael Chandler. In the UFC’s history, the Irishman has four of the top five pay-per-view fights, with a combined total of 5.95 million pay-per-view sales.
The Irishman, who is currently the biggest pay-per-view attraction in the business, may undoubtedly smash some records when he returns later this year.
Conor McGregor claims Michael Chandler has never fought someone like him
Even though Conor McGregor has only triumphed in one of his last four UFC contests, he is certain that he can defeat Michael Chandler. According to the Irishman, “Iron” is just another mixed martial arts fighter with nothing exceptional to offer.
The former UFC double champion claimed that he is “too slick” for Michael Chandler during a recent interview on My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox. McGregor asserted that he would demonstrate their disparate skill levels on fight night:
“I’m simply too slick for Chandler. I’m simply too good for him. He hasn’t fought someone comparable to me. Yet, I have battled someone similar to him. I believe it to be the mixed martial arts style in general. a wrestler of that height. I suppose it resembles MMA somewhat. It’s not strange in any way. I’ve been in battle with them [fighters] for a very long time. So, it will be my responsibility to demonstrate the disparity in our skill levels on fight night.”
