UFC lightweight fighter Michael Chandler recently had a hilarious encounter with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. Chandler, who has been speculated to fight Conor McGregor had an ‘altercation’ with the 16-time World Champion.
A recent social media video of Michael Chandler and WWE legend Ric Flair looked to show the two getting into a furious altercation. An increasingly enraged Flair branded Chandler a “p***ant” and dared him to get physical. The initially contrite Chandler tried to diffuse the situation.
However, when “Iron” finally had enough of the legendary wrestler’s antics, he mocked Flair for being older than he actually was and called him “past his prime.” That’s when the video really started to comedic, with the two getting into a blatantly staged altercation.

The is not the first time fans have seen Michael Chandler and Ric Flair on screen together. Last month, the duo performed in a commercial for CarShield. In the advertisement, ‘The Nature’ is seen asking Chandler on the perks of the company in question before ditching him when “Iron” gives the wrong answer.
Ric Flair has been making appearances on All Elite Wrestling and recently associated with fellow WWE Hall of Famer Sting at the promotion. Meanwhile, the highly anticipated UFC 300 event is just a few months away.
There has been no official announcement about the main event for that card but this has led to tons of speculation among MMA fans. One matchup that is constantly been talked about is Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler.
