Will Michael Chandler fight against Conor McGregor next?
Michael Chandler has not shied away and has made it clear that he wants to fight Conor McGregor next. Moreover, the interest is mutual as Conor McGregor had responded to Chandler’s callout and said that he is down for a fight at some stage.

However, despite both the lightweights verbally agreeing to face each other, UFC President Dana White seems to have a different opponent in his mind for Chandler. In a recent Q&A session on Espn, Dana revealed that the UFC is eyeing a bout between Michael Chandler vs Tony Ferguson.
However, the UFC President did not confirm the announcement. Both the fighters have engaged in a back and forth on social media and it would be interesting to see what happens next. With that being said a fight between Chandler and McGregor could still take place if there is a breakdown in the scheduling of the Tony Ferguson bout.
