The world of mixed martial arts (MMA) was sent into a frenzy recently when UFC President Dana White hinted at a huge scrap between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler during filming. The two fighters have been linked with a potential fight for some time, and White’s comments have only added fuel to the fire.
White made the comments during an interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, where he was asked about the filming of the upcoming UFC 257 event. White said that “a lot of s*** went down” during the filming, and that it was “awesome”. He then went on to say that he couldn’t reveal any details, but that it was “something special”.
The comments have led to speculation that McGregor and Chandler could be set for a showdown at UFC 257. The two fighters have been linked with a potential fight for some time, and White’s comments have only added fuel to the fire.
McGregor is one of the biggest stars in the sport, and his return to the octagon has been highly anticipated. He last fought in January 2020, when he defeated Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds. Since then, he has been linked with a number of potential opponents, including Chandler.
Chandler is a former Bellator lightweight champion, and he made his UFC debut in January 2021. He defeated Dan Hooker in the first round, and he is now looking to make a statement in the UFC lightweight division.
The potential fight between McGregor and Chandler would be a huge draw for the UFC, and it would be sure to draw in a huge audience. Both fighters have huge fanbases, and the fight would be sure to be a blockbuster.
It remains to be seen if the fight will actually happen, but White’s comments have certainly added fuel to the fire. If the fight does happen, it could be one of the biggest fights in MMA history.
