The following is Renato Moicano’s response to Conor McGregor’s suggestion that he should play Michael Chandler as the main event at UFC 300.

There has not yet been an official headline announced for UFC 300. In spite of this, Brazilian lightweight fighter Renato Moicano laughed off a suggestion made by Conor McGregor that he should be the main event of the marquee pay-per-view event that will take place the following year, which would be against Michael Chandler. This particular exchange was the most recent in a peculiar string of tweets that both men had been sending out.

The idea of a headline fight between McGregor and Chandler was never taken seriously by Moicano, who denied the possibility of such a fight. ‘Iron’ was, in point of fact, regarded by him as being far too simple to attract his attention.

The suggestion that McGregor made, which was made in a tweet that has since been removed, was most likely done in response to Chandler’s recent assertions that the Irishman is avoiding him. Despite the fact that fans are eagerly anticipating a return from McGregor at UFC 300, there is still no information regarding who will be the main attraction at the event.

There have been some matchups revealed for what the promotion thinks will be the most successful mixed martial arts event in 2024; yet, not a single one of them has been able to pique the interest of the fans. For the past few months, there have been numerous reports circulating that McGregor may no longer be interested in competing against Chandler.

Instead, there have been stories that have claimed that the Irishman might very well face his old foe Nate Diaz in the lengthy trilogy fight that the two of them have been waiting for. A number of people, including the legendary fighter from Stockton, have expressed interest in competing in UFC 300. On the other hand, in order to accomplish this, he must first re-sign with the UFC.

Israel Adesanya, a former middleweight champion who just began what is anticipated to be a lengthy break from mixed martial arts and combat sports in general, has been mentioned as one of the other headliners for the event. It is quite probable that he will not be able to make it back in time for the UFC 300 event.
