Michael Chandler uncertain about Conor McGregor’s return

Conor McGregor has been on a steady decline ever since he came out of retirement to fight Dustin Poirier for a rematch in 2021. The same year Poirier and McGregor faced off for a trilogy but as the most intense rivals. McGregor suffered a brutal ankle injury that forced him to leave the sport until now.

He has recovered successfully and is also expected to fight Michael Chandler this year, but recently Chandler raised some questions and thinks McGregor may not show up for the much awaited lightweight fight.

Michael Chandler speaks about Conor Mcgregor’s return

Recently in an interview with ESPN MMA, Michael Chandler spoke about the uncertainty linked with Conor McGregor’s expected return and shared his overall reaction to it.

“I think he’s coming back,” Chandler said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “It sure would be a huge stain on his legacy, leading everybody down a road, making people think that he’s coming back, and then kind of chickening out at the very end and only doing it for the publicity.

That, to me, screams insecurity, and he’s trying to stay relevant rather than seeing through your commitment". “I could be very wrong about it, and if I am, I would be surprised and, quite frankly, disappointed, but also, I’m not going to sit here blowing up my manager, blowing up Dana (White) and Hunter (Campbell), just calling them all the time, ‘Hey, when are we getting something done?'”.

Michael chandler and Conor Mcgregor have one thing in common ands that the fact that they lost to the same opponent Dustin Poirier. He further speaks about getting drug tested and having no result submitted yet. “I could see it very well being just two clean tests,” Chandler further said.

“I have no problem with it being two clean tests. I could care less. If you do two clean tests, sounds to me like you’re clean. At this point, who am I to say what the stipulations are? I’m ready for him to be cleared or at least get that answer. At this point, we don’t have an answer”. (Image source: MMA Junkie - USA Today)
