Possible date of Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler

One of the best kept secrets by Dana White and the UFC has always been Conor McGregor’s return date to the octagon. Since he broke his leg at UFC 264 in the fight with Dustin Poirier, the Irish has completed 3 years in dry dockdespite Topuria’s attempts to get him out of it with temptation of the Santiago Bernabéu.

His return, currently scheduled for the end of the year, will be against Michael Chandler and, although the fight was expected to take place at La Esfera in Las Vegas on September 14, it seems that is not going to be the case.

Both were scheduled to fight at UFC 303, until McGregor announced his toe injury, canceling the fight until further notice. Since then We have seen him in Dublin during a Bellator event, supporting her training partner Sinead Kavanagh who faced Arlene Blencowe. Precisely in Dublin, that day, was where announced that he will come 100% to the fight with Chandler.

When would McGregor return?

Conor McGregor in his golden era

Own Mystic Mac commented that I would be ready to return in August although Dana White stopped him by saying that by then the UFC cards are all complete: “August and September are months in which events have already been completed and I’m not going to do anything until I know that Conor is really healthy. “I’m not even going to talk about it.”

For his part, journalist Ariel Helwani has “gotten wet” by giving clues about the date on which the crash could take place: “At this point, if I have to bet money on the date of the Conor vs. Chandler; It is not news, but my opinion, it is that it will be in december, because of the way everything is developing. I don’t think they are going to create a date for them, much less that they are going to fight in La Esfera, it is very expensive. Las Vegas will be the most likely setting for Sean O’Malley against Merab Dvalishvili”.

The rivalry of Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler

The rivalry between Chandler and McGregor has not taken off yet. Both They have been correct in their statements until Chandler’s post in X when he saw McGregor in Bellator:

“Speaking of going to events… I’m glad you finally made it to the event.” 3Arena, where the press conference was supposed to be on June 3. Nice shoes. Who is Bellator’s ‘tick’ now?

That last phrase is dedicated to Conor after the incident that both had in the octagon during The Ultimate Fighterwhen McGregor referred to Chandler as a “little Bellator tick” with two crying emojis.
