Cian Cowley talks about Conor McGregor’s first fight back

Conor McGregor will fight Michael Chandler after the former title rival called out the Irishman after his incredible win over Tony Ferguson.

In the second round, Chandler defeated Ferguson. He immediately demanded a title match against Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje. McGregor could also be a contender for a welterweight match, should the UFC top brass decide to look elsewhere.

“I’m ready to come back,”He added. “The main event; there is not one MMA fan who doesn’t want to see me rematch you Charles or rematch you Justin Gaethje. If the UFC have a momentary lapse and give the title shot to someone else, I’ve got one dude on my mind. Conor McGregor, I am the most entertaining lightweight on the planet. I want you at your baddest and I want you at your best; you and me at 170lb.”

McGregor quickly responded on social media. I’d have a nice knock off this guy, no doubt about it,” he said. “A firework spectacle. I also like the 170 shout. Tipped him over. I’m definitely game to fight this guy at some stage in my career. It’s possible after tonight. Congratulations Michael on your solid win and another barnstormer.”

McGregor is currently completing his recovery from the broken leg he suffered in his third fight with Dustin Poirier last summer. The former two-weight world champion has won just one of his last four fights, a 40-second demolition of Donald Cerrone in 2020.

McGregor resumed boxing sparring last month but has yet to return to full-contact training and will not return to action before August. He has previously called out welterweight champion Kamaru Usman after claiming he will not return to 155lb.

Usman is due to defend his belt against Birmingham’s Leon Edwards but the fight has yet to be announced and was absent from the UFC 276 card to be held on July 2 in Las Vegas. Instead, Israel Adesanya will defend his middleweight belt against Jarod Cannonier in the main event.
