As this post was written, no details are known about what will happen in the UFC lightweight title.But recently Daniel Cormier gave some advice Dan Hooker And Michael chandler, How it helps to ensure that you participate in the title shot mix.
Cormier says Chandler or Hooker needs to call McGregor
Recently, it was announced that Chandler and Hooker will fight on the January 23rd UFC257 card. As you may know, Conor McGregor will be headlining Dustin Poirier at the event.
The consensus has been McGregor’s winner since champion Habib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement in October. Poirier goes on to fight for the title.
Dana White wants to convince Habib to fight again. But if that doesn’t happen, the UFC will have to set up a fight for the free belt.
“In order for Chandler to participate in the joint main event, we’ll put Chandler in the perfect place, and Dan Hooker too,” Cormier said.
“If I win with Dan Hooker, I’m immediately saying something about McGregor. Anyone who wins £ 155 with that fight card will say something about McGregor.
What do you think? McGregor does not have the ability to respond. He says something back.
He says something and elevates you. There is a level of fighting (with the same card) and stardom coming with this guy I’ve never seen. “
Cormier also recalled that in 2016 at UFC 205, Habib maximized McGregor’s chances of getting attention. After defeating Michael Johnson at the event, Connor defeated Eddie Alvarez later that same night. He called a star.
“Habib is in qualifying:” I want to fight your chicken. “Suddenly, they begin to mention Habib and Connor with the same breath. “
“Habib is not yet a champion. He is a young man on the way up, and then it just builds.”

Sure, some will soon point out here that Dustin could beat Connor in the UFC 257. That would make the call from McGregor meaningless.
But that aside, getting Connor’s attention that night is very good advice, as the title can quickly become empty.
Justin Gaethje and Charles Oliveira in particular could fight soon, leaving a strong case for the title shot to the winner in another match.
Therefore, more topics that any of these fighters can generate through exchanges with McGregor (or Poirier) could move the UFC in their direction.
UFC257 will be held on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
