Michael Chandler has demanded a matchup with Conor McGregor ever since he joined the UFC and now he will get his wish.
While coaching The Ultimate Fighter 31, the former Bellator lightweight champion will compete against McGregor. The actual time and place of their confrontation, which is expected to be one of the biggest matches of 2023, are still to be determined. Even though they have a long way to go before they fight, Chandler already has a fair understanding of what to anticipate from McGregor.
Michael Chandler predicts a second round KO of Conor McGregor
In an interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto Michael Chandler called himself Mystic Mike and predicted a second round knockout of Conor McGregor.
“If he lands one on the button, it’s going to be a rough night for me. If I land one on the button, it’s going to be a rough night for him, but which one of us can do it?” Chandler said.
“I’m going to get in his face, make him take a backwards step right away. He’s going to feel my presence from the very beginning of the fight and then from there wherever the fight takes us. If I want to pick him up and put him down, I can pick him up and put him down and put a beating on him and get a submission that way. I believe I finish Conor in the second round. That’s my ‘Mystic Mike’ take on this, later on this year whenever it is.” (H/T – MMAFighting.com)
