Joe Rogan feels Michael Chandler is welterweight fighting in the UFC’s lightweight division
According to Joe Rogan, Michael Chandler probably weighs around a massive 190 pounds when he is not fighting or preparing for a fight. He is also of the idea, Chandler weighs in at the welterweight limit of 170 pounds when he steps inside the Octagon, and makes the lightweight limit for a mere “20 minutes” to just hit the scale.
“He is also like this ball of muscle. Right now, get on the scale, he is 190. The dude is 155 pounds for about twenty minutes, and then he rehydrates, I bet he is 170+ when he fights.” Rogan opined.
