Next weekend is in UFC 257, Three-time former Lightweight Champion Pilator Michael Chandler He would finally make his long-awaited debut in the UFC. It’s a big opportunity for Chandler to announce himself to UFC fans but it also comes with a huge amount of risk. Chandler will face the lightweight competitor in sixth place Dan Hooker For the first time, according to Daniel CormierThis risk and reward makes Chandler’s perfect debut.
“Perfect fight,” Cormier said. DC and Confectioner. “Dan Hooker will challenge and make Michael Chandler fight in every aspect of mixed martial arts. Hooker is tough as far as he comes, he’s from a great team, he has incredible fighting spirit, willpower, heart. I mean, he and Dustin Poirier He went to absolute war at APEX recently. So, if you want to know whether Michael Chandler is ready for the division elite or not, he has to fight and defeat Dan Hooker, and that is not an easy thing to do. “
It was the last time the Bellator Champion made his way into the UFC Eddie Alvarez Who first appeared against Donald Seroni. Alvarez ended up losing a decision, which led to his title aspirations set back outside the gate. Likewise, Cormer thinks Dan Hooker has a lot of potential to do the same against Chandler, which makes Iron Mike’s victory even more impressive.
“A tough fight,” said Cormier. “I’m not quite sure. Outside Patricio Pitbull – and he’s awesome – this will be the hardest battle he has ever fought … when you look at who Dan Hooker is today, at the height of his absolute fame, he’s out of a major event battle with Dustin Poirier where it’s going on together for more than 25 mins, that’s one of the biggest fights Chandler has ever fought in. He also gets a rub. He gets to fight the same night like Conor McGregor. Chandler would really raise it if he gets the job done. But if he does not, then we go back to the position you think strongly about free agents and it does not work. “
Ultimately, things worked out for Alvarez, who won after losing Cerrone in two fights and then claimed the lightweight title before losing it to the man who would top UFC 257, Conor McGregor. Given that MacGregor is the main event, Cormer has advice to Chandler: If he gets to win, summon Connor.
“I know my man (Khabib NurmagomedovOne of the biggest stars in the world right now, but do you remember UFC 205? “I want to fight your chickens!” Khabib said in the introduction: “I want to fight your chickens!” Then all of a sudden they started mentioning Khabib and Connor at the same time. Khabib is not the champion yet, he’s a young man on his way up and then builds UFC can contact that again.
“For Chandler to be in the main joint event, it puts him in a perfect spot. And Dan Hooker too. If I win I’m Dan Hooker, I immediately say something about MacGregor. Whoever wins 155 pounds on this fighting card, you say something about McGregor because you Guess what? McGregor doesn’t have the power to not respond. He’ll say something. Because he’s going off and he’s going to say something and lift you up. There’s a level of stardom that comes with fighting and with this guy I’ve never seen before. So I’d call him if you’re Michael Chandler and I’m happy to be in. this place “.
