“So there will be a lot of pressure on Dustin to win this fight, or he has given up a title shot that he might not get for a while.”

Chandler will face submitting artist Charles Oliveira to win the vacant UFC lightweight title at UFC 262 on May 15.

“If you fight one or two more times to get back to the title and Connor wins, it may be me and Connor who will fight next,” he said.
