Michael Chandler urged to “wake up” as doubts linger over Conor McGregor’s future fights

Chael Sonnen, a former UFC fighter and current analyst, shared his opinion on a potential fight between Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor. He advised Chandler to consider the possibility that the fight may not happen. Sonnen’s view is shared by many fans who are concerned about McGregor’s commitment to the sport after reports of him gambling in Las Vegas instead of training for his upcoming fight with Chandler.

Conor Anthony McGregor is a professional mixed martial artist from Ireland. He has held championship titles in both the featherweight and lightweight categories in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), making him the first fighter to achieve this feat. McGregor has also been a former champion in the featherweight and lightweight categories in the Cage Warriors organization.

The fight between McGregor and his opponent has not been scheduled yet, and the main obstacle to making it happen is that McGregor has not been tested by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) since his last fight with Poirier in July 2021. The UFC has a rule that requires McGregor to be tested twice within six months before he can participate in another fight, which could cause a significant delay in the fight.

It’s a fair question to wonder if McGregor will return to the octagon, given the unclear information about his plans. Sonnen acknowledges that there hasn’t been any official confirmation of the Chandler fight, and the information provided so far hasn’t been completely accurate.

Sonnen advises Chandler to come to terms with the possibility of not having a fight scheduled and explore other options to advance his career as a prizefighter. Although Sonnen thinks that a fight between Chandler and McGregor would be exciting and attract a lot of attention from fans, he recognizes that certain circumstances could prevent this matchup from happening.

It has been a while since there has been any clear news about McGregor’s plans, and Sonnen has pointed out that there could be lasting consequences for the sport. We will have to wait and see if McGregor will come back to the octagon to fight Chandler or if Chandler will have to look for other opponents to keep his career going.

As of now, fans and analysts will keep guessing what’s next for the two fighters and the possibility of them facing each other. Although some may find Sonnen’s remarks controversial, they showcase the doubt and speculation surrounding McGregor’s future in the sport and how it could affect the UFC overall.
