Michael Chandler will finally make his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut when he plays against Dan Hooker. UFC257 joint main event January 23, 2021, on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Of course, in the main event, Conor McGregor will be back in a six-year rematch against Dustin Poirier.By defeating Hooker, Chandler is still in the realm of possibility to take over the Poirier vs. McGregor winner, but everything is still floating in the air. Dana White Meeting With current £ 155 champion Habib Nurmagomedov.
Still, Chandler looks forward to one day being confused with McGregor. He says it will be an absolute nightmare for the former UFC champion.
“Of course, I want a possible fight with Conor McGregor. Do you think I match Conor very well? Absolutely,” Chandler declared in a recent interview. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.
“In addition to the wrestling background, in addition to the power of the hand, in addition to the ability to combine batting and takedown, I have the ability to increase the pace. I think it’s a nightmare for Connor. But I think Connor Respect what you are doing. Connor continues to be himself. ”
Chandler is one of the most balanced fighters at £ 155 and has proven to be able to dominate and win battles on the ground and on the feet. Connor, on the other hand, shows that it can be vulnerable once the battle begins. This means that you may continue to fight the former Bellator MMA champion for as long as possible.
Of course, there are plenty of £ 155 moving pieces before the potential match is over, but I think the promotion is likely to slide if something happens where Poirier can’t reach the UFC 257. There is no mistake. Chandler is obliged to headline “notorious”.
