UFC’s Michael Chandler Says Conor McGregor Is ‘Definitely the Fight That I Want’

Chris Unger/Zuffa LLC

Fresh off an impressive win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 274 last month, Michael Chandler has his sights set on Conor McGregor.

In an interview with TMZ Sports (beginning at the 2:55 mark), Chandler discussed his desire to fight arguably the biggest star in UFC history:

“I would love the opportunity to compete against him,” Chandler said. “If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, you know, I’m not going to lose sleep at night. But it’s definitely the fight that I want.”

Since a lengthy run in Bellator MMA that saw him hold the promotion’s lightweight title three times, Chandler has made a strong transition to UFC.

Chandler is 2-2 under the UFC umbrella, beating Dan Hooker and Ferguson and losing to Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje, although the Gaethje fight went the distance and was named Fight of the Night.

With a career record of 23-7 with 11 knockouts and seven submissions, Chandler is a dangerous fighter and would undoubtedly pose a stiff challenge to McGregor.

The 33-year-old McGregor has already established himself as a UFC legend, having held the featherweight and lightweight titles, but success has eluded him in recent years.

After starting his career 19-2, McGregor has lost four of his past seven fights, three of his past four and two in a row.

McGregor fell to Dustin Poirier at both UFC 257 and 264, and the UFC 264 loss saw him suffer a broken leg that has kept him on the shelf for the past 11 months.

UFC president Dana White said this week that he is hopeful McGregor will return in late 2022 or early 2023 and a fight with Chandler is possible, as White said he “really likes” the idea of McGregor vs. Chandler.

If Chandler were to beat McGregor, he would likely find himself right back in the UFC lightweight title hunt.

Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia will start the race from pole position as he aims to bounce back from two straight retirements that have all but ended his chances of winning the title.

Fresh from his dominant performance at the Sachsenring, championship leader Fabio Quartararo will line up second on the Yamaha, while Pramac’s Jorge Martin will complete the front row.

Marco Bezzecchi qualified an excellent fourth for VR46 ahead of Aleix Espargaro, who remains the chief rival to Quartararo in the title fight.

Dog Runs onto Field During Chile vs. Venezuela 2022 Women’s International Friendly

Visionhaus

An international friendly between the women’s national teams of Venezuela and Chile had an invader take over the pitch during the first half of their Saturday match. However, it wasn’t a person.

A dog ran onto the pitch in the 37th minute, making friends with members of both teams and even the referee. While Venezuela went on to win 1-0, the unexpected pitch invader was undoubtedly the star of the show.

This actually isn’t the first time a dog has invaded the pitch during a Venezuelan soccer game. Back in 2016, a dog interrupted a game between men’s teams Pumas UNAM and Deportivo Tachira.

While it isn’t something we see too often, this does bring up memories of when a cat ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium last year during a game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.
