Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler were both assigned to opposite coaching jobs for the forthcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” and the two were shown meeting for the first time in a recent teaser for the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
As was typical of him, ‘The Notorious’ wasted no time in engaging ‘Iron’ in his infamous brand of mental warfare by challenging him to a bout at 185 pounds right after they met. Chandler countered by stating that he was capable of competing in the fight at that weight, to which McGregor belligerently responded:
“You will carry out the instructions given to you.”
In the comment section of the YouTube video, supporters of Conor McGregor were quick to point out the unique skill he possesses to weaponize trash talk and applauded him for the performance.

It made me laugh out loud when Conor walked in dressed as the Joker.

You’ll do what you’re ordered to do, and that’s an original Conor line.

I haven’t seen The Ultimate Fighter in almost a decade, so I’m excited to catch up with this season.
Dustin Poirier on Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler
Dustin Poirier is the only person we know of who has a legitimate shot at predicting the winner of the fight between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler. “The Diamond” was responsible for both of the striking savants’ most recent defeats inside the octagon.
During a recent segment of The MMA Hour, hosted by Ariel Helwani, the question of whether or not Dustin Poirier had any comments on the upcoming fight between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler was put to him. He indicated his belief that the Irishman would emerge victorious by saying:
“I believe that if Conor returns with even a fraction of the timing and rhythm that he possessed before… If he returns to the person he was before he went, I believe that he will be able to prevent Michael Chandler from… If Conor is at the level he was at before his injury and everything else, I think the fight will be over in two rounds. I think the fight will be over in two rounds.
Conor McGregor is expected to finish Michael Chandler in “two rounds” according to Dustin Poirier, who believes that McGregor will be the same fighter he was before his injury. #TheMMAHour
