The significant comeback of former dual-weight champion Conor McGregor was just confirmed by President Dana White. The Irish actor will compete against fellow lightweight Michael Chandler as a coach on another season of "The Ultimate Fighter." Following the conclusion of the season, Chandler and McGregor will be the featured attraction in a pay-per-view event in September 2023. For fight fans who have been waiting more than two years for McGregor's comeback, this is fantastic news. As a result, the fight has already begun to be promoted. Additionally, a lot of spectators and analysts have begun to provide their opinions on this highly anticipated match. Dustin Poirier, a former interim lightweight champion, is one of them.
What did Dustin Poirier have to say about Michael Chandler vs. Conor McGregor?
The Irish UFC superstar and "The Diamond" have a history together. Three times they have squared off inside the UFC cage. Poirier has twice beaten McGregor in their history. In the run-up to the first and third fights, the two also engaged in a lot of trash talking. McGregor also insulted Poirier's wife in the process. Despite this, "The Diamond" upheld his MMA principles and gave his honest opinion of McGregor vs. Chandler. In a recent interview, Poirier claimed that McGregor can easily defeat Chandler if he returns with the same pace and skill as before his injury. The native of Louisiana also thinks Chandler is quite attackable. In light of McGregor's it is simple to beat him with timing.
At 170 pounds, McGregor and Chandler will square off
The UFC has confirmed that McGregor vs. Chandler will take place in the welterweight category and not the lightweight division after the blockbuster fight's announcement. Chandler had indicated he wanted to battle with the Irish star at 170 during one of his call-outs. On the other hand, since he has a stronger track record in the 170lbs division than the 155lbs, "The Notorious" may benefit from this. In addition, McGregor now seems enormous after recovering from the injuries. He has acquired a lot of weight and could now weigh more than 200 pounds. Therefore, the former dual-weight champion will find it simple to reach 170 pounds before the bout. Prior to anything else, though, McGregor must enrol in the USADA testing pool and receive two or more negative results.
