With back-to-back losses against the formidable Dustin Poirier, McGregor is primed for a comeback, while Chandler, fresh off a defeat, is hungry for redemption.
Revealing his insider knowledge, the ever-confident “The Diamond” shares his bold prediction, affirming that McGregor’s triumph will be sealed in just two electrifying rounds as long as he enters the ring in peak condition.
