After landing the highly coveted’red panties night’ by being booked to battle Conor McGregor, Michael Chandler was once regarded as one of the luckiest competitors on the UFC roster at the time. However, Chandler’s luck has now changed. However, after a few months had passed, he found that his luck had altered, and the money fight he had been anticipating with the Irishman was nowhere to be seen.
The UFC has not yet provided an official date for McGregor’s return to the octagon, and the former double champion’s enthusiasm in confronting Chandler has waned, which has led to him issuing challenges to other fighters such as Justin Gaethje, Nate Diaz, and even KSI. The UFC has not yet provided an official date for McGregor’s comeback to the octagon.
Despite this, Michael Chandler continues to hold out hope that they will be able to fight each other.

Chandler hasn’t competed since November of last year, when he was defeated by Dustin Poirier. Unfortunately, this inaction on his part has been caused by him waiting for Conor McGregor to return to action, which has contributed to his inactivity. Because of this, supporters have demanded that he be taken off of the rankings because of his lack of participation.
As a point of reference, the man who won the lightweight division three times in a row at Bellator is currently ranked fifth in the lightweight class at the UFC. The following is what Chandler had to say in response to the fans’ demand that he be removed off the rankings:
“Take my rating, for example…”
Chandler’s name has been brought up for removal from the rankings on more than one occasion, thus this is not the first time someone has done so. After Arman Tsarukyan rejected down a fight with the other fighter, Tsarukyan had earlier requested that the UFC remove the other fighter from the divisional rankings.
How many UFC wins does Michael Chandler have?

Tony Ferguson, who is currently unranked and is currently on a losing streak of three fights and is now on the verge of tying for the all-time worst losing streak in UFC history if he loses to Paddy Pimblett at UFC 296, was his opponent in his other victory, which came against a currently unranked Tony Ferguson. He has now suffered defeat in each of his last six bouts.
