Conor McGregor Willing To Fight Michael Chandler In 2022

Michael Chandler displayed an epic showdown with Justin Gaethje at UFC 268 this past weekend. Both fighters threw bombs at each other till the final bell rang.

Chandler lost the fight via unanimous decision, but the scorecard doesn’t do justice as the fight moved back and forth, with both fighters having their moments in the octagon.

It was Chandler’s second loss in the octagon, now falling to 1-2 on his UFC career.

After a grueling battle with Gaethje, Chandler was quick to pick up his next opponent.

On Monday evening, the former Bellator Champion posted a well-crafted photoshop image on his Twitter account where he was seen facing off with former two-division champion Conor McGregor with a caption just reading “2022.”

It immediately got the attention of McGregor who replied that he will take this fight “at some stage” and congratulated Chandler on a barn-burner with Gaethje at UFC 268.

Chandler left a note saying “See you soon.”

Like Chandler, McGregor hasn’t had a very good 2021, losing back-to-back contests to Dustin Poirier.

McGregor had got the better of “Diamond” in their first meeting in 2014. In late 2020, both fighters signed a rematch contract where Poirier came out on top finishing the “Notorious” in the second round via TKO.

This fight was fought in a good spirit, but McGregor didn’t take that loss lightly as he immediately pointed towards a trilogy fight.

In the pre-match conferences, McGregor was back to his antics, hurling personal remarks against Poirier and his wife. There was bad blood brewing between the two and it was apparent after McGregor lost the contest due to the doctor’s stoppage resulting from a broken leg at the end of the first round.

During the post-fight interview, McGregor threatened to kill Poirier and his wife – all this while he was still receiving medical assistance from the doctor in the octagon.

Since then, McGregor has undergone surgery to repair his broken leg and has been seen walking without any kind of support.

It’s not known when McGregor decides to return to the octagon. But if he does, Chandler could be a perfect opponent for the Irishman.
