Grant Dawson believes Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler won’t happen

One of the coaches from The Ultimate Fighter season 31, Grant Dawson, shockingly claims that the much-awaited lightweight clash between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler will not happen; he backs his claim with convincing reasons, and only time can determine if the fans will witness the match this year or not.

A lot of comments have been made on Conor Mcgregor and USADA testing; Grant Dawson speaks about it in great detail and explains how it plays a restricting factor in Mcgregor’s comeback fight.

Grant Dawson’s thoughts on Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler

Recently in an interview with MMA Junkie, Grant Dawson goes in-depth on Conor McGregor’s comeback knock and the whole USADA testing scenario.

“I’m telling you right now that the Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor fight is not going to happen,” Dawson said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “That is not happening. I would be shocked if that fight happens this year or at all”.

“Man, he’s not in the testing pool,” Dawson elaborates further. “He has to be in the testing pool for six months”. “He’s not going to be in the testing pool”, Dawson compares Conor McGregor with Brock Lesnar.“He thought he could go the Brock Lesnar way, and he’s realizing he can’t.

He was at bareknuckle (BKFC 41 event). Did you see him at bareknuckle pulling that stunt? That was a stunt. Most fans are really looking forward to seeing Conor McGregor return in the ending phase of 2023; it is interesting for Grant Dawson to speak with such conviction; perhaps after the ultimate fighter season 31 is released; more details on the potential matchup can be expected to be disclosed publicly.

"He’s trying to get past the rules, and it’s not going to happen. USADA is not going to budge on their decision. It’s going to be six months, and that fight is not happening this year. I don’t think that fight is ever happening because Conor doesn’t want to be in the testing pool, if you know what I mean”.
