The imminent cancellation of the duel between Conor McGregor e Michael chandler has been taking over the MMA world in recent days.

"We will see. Ultimately, this all sucks. If I were Chandler… As an athlete, you earn your money when you compete. I don't remember the last time Chandler competed. I don't know if he was against Charles (Do Bronx) or Dustin (Poirier) or Justin (Gaethje). I don't know. I don't remember. So for me, he's been on the sidelines to wait and fight Conor McGregor and that may never happen. I just feel like Chandler might be wasting his time,” Demetrious said.


the last fight of Michael chandler took place on November 12, 2022, at UFC 281, when it was completed by Dustin poirier in the third round. If no change occurs, 'Iron' will return to the Octagon on June 29, at UFC 303, for the expected duel against Conor McGregor. The card will be held at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas (USA).
