Arman Tsarukyan is open to fighting Michael Chandler

Arman Tsarukyan, the 8th-ranked lightweight contender, recently secured a brilliant 3rd round knockout victory against Joaquim Silva. Tsarukyan has strengthened his winning momentum after the tough loss against Mateusz Gamrot and is now looking forward to fighting someone from the top 5; he does have a name in his mind – it is none other than Micahel Chandler.

Arman Tsarukyan wants to fight Michael Chandler because he believes that McGregor won’t end up fighting Chandler owing to his lavish and comfortable lifestyle. Tsayukyan has earned his right to demand a fight from the top 5, and it will be very interesting to see who the UFC decides to match him up against next.

Arman Tsarukyan on his next fight

After the recent win against Joaquim Silva, Arman Tsarukyan addressed his plans for his next match in the post-fight press conference. He does not see Michael Chandler vs Conor McGregor happening and reveals who he looks forward to fighting next.

“If you want to ask me, for sure I want to fight with Michael Chandler,” Tsarukyan said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “Because it looks like his fight with Conor McGregor is over. He got to fight with someone, and I am here.

I have good win streak and let’s do this fight, because I’m the youngest guy in top 15. He’s the older one. I think for fans it’s good when new generation fights with older generation”. Tsarukyan on McGregor’s lifestyle: “I saw what McGregor’s doing, he’s like relaxing on his yacht, like drink alcohol, goes to the beach, smoke weed.

I train with the crazy guys. I live in the gym, train three, two times a day. He’s not going to fight”. Tsarukyan further said: “If Dariush can fight in Abu Dhabi in October, definitely I want fight with him, if not, you know me, I’m going to fight with everybody.

But everybody from top five, forever. Chandler or Dariush or whatever. I think fight with Dariush, it makes sense”.
