Fans of mixed martial arts are eagerly anticipating Conor McGregor’s comeback. The Irishman is presently filming for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 31, where he will play Michael Chandler’s adversarial coach. The two will face off on a UFC fight event once the season is over, and speculation has focused on who will prevail in the possible contest.
Dustin Poirier defeated McGregor and Chandler in their most recent octagon appearances at UFC 264 and UFC 281, respectively. The upcoming fight between the two is a high-stakes contest because they have both dropped three of their last four contests. Rafael Fiziev, the top-ranked lightweight contender in the UFC, is the newest competitor to weigh in on who he believes will win between the two.
Conor McGregor claims that he is ready to reclaim the title after fully recovering from the leg injury he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Fiziev, meanwhile, is dubious about McGregor’s chances of reclaiming his prior success. At the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas, the No.6 lightweight contender recently ran into “The Notorious” and was shocked by the Irishman’s state, which suggested that McGregor had been partying rather than working out.
Fiziev said in a recent appearance on Submission Radio:
“Bro, I noticed McGregor’s face when he arrived at UFC P.I., and I believe there was too much partying. Partying too much every day His visage gives off the impression that he rests frequently and consumes a lot of Proper No. 12. Indeed, I believe Chandler has a great opportunity to have a happy future. Chandler is powerful and has outstanding timing.”
“Just like everything else with Conor McGregor, he needs to be smart. There’s no need to act absurdly like Justin did. Put his hands down and move ahead, you know. He needs to remove it. He can defeat him without a doubt if he is smarter. 100 percent of the time, I think.
Gilbert Burns offers his take on Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler on The Ultimate Fighter
Several Twitter interactions between Conor McGregor and Gilbert Burns show that the two have maintained a contentious relationship in the past.
The Irishman had already been cautioned by Burns not to compete at 170 pounds. Conor McGregor disregarded Burns’ advice, and after The Ultimate Fighter filming is through, he will face Michael Chandler in the welterweight division in his much anticipated comeback.
Burns offered his opinion on the possible Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler match in a recent interview with Submission Radio:
“I don’t think Michael will have an easy battle; nonetheless, I hope Michael knocks him out severely. Although I never wish that for anyone, I hope Michael succeeds. Conor is where he is, and I don’t want to wish anything awful for him. The two-time champion was instrumental in transforming the game. Maybe I didn’t make the best decision, but all I want is for Michael to win. I’ll do everything in my ability to assist him in getting ready, and I want him to finish.
