Michael Chandler, Bellator expeller and new UFC star, insulted the legends of his division. The American had an interview in the last hours, where he dedicated a few words to Dustin Poirier, Tony ferguson, Conor McGregor Y Dan hooker. These are four of the posts he has for his beginnings in the leading Mixed Martial Arts company, although none of them have responded yet.
“I think Dustin Poirier He’s one of the most respectful guys in and out of the Octagon in the UFC. He has a really cool technique. It’s a volume puncher. It is tenacious. He has a big chin. I think it has Fight of the Night all over it. But I think it would be too much for him to mix both hitting and grappling styles. I overcome all that and I think I would win easily in a crash, “he began by saying about Poirier.
In turn, he also shot another of the best: “Tony ferguson He’s the scariest guy on the list. It has a loose screw. Never tires. Being thrown into the deepest, darkest depths of the UFC roster is exactly what it means to step into the cage with Tony Ferguson. That’s why he was willing to make the first fight in the UFC. That’s why I said yes to that fight and I needed him to say yes and he didn’t. I’m excited for that fight. That would be a great, great fight and we would get Fight of the Night.
Who will be the first?
“Conor McGregor, international icon of combat sports. I hope he really returns. Obviously, in the first fight in the UFC, I’m not going to be sitting here calling for Conor McGregor. I haven’t earned it yet, but I think I cope very well with him. I think you avoid that big left hand in the first round. It starts to get a little flatter in the second round. Round three, round four, round five, I’d wear him down and go for a submission win. Similar to Nate Diaz or what Khabib did to him ”, he told about the Irishman.
To close, Michael Chandler He added: “I think Dan is a phenomenal competitor. I met Dustin Poirier in my last fight and I went straight up to him, shook his hand and said, ‘You are a warrior, the fight you and Hooker got into was absolutely incredible. Dan hooker he is a warrior, he is a young and hungry lion. He’s definitely one of the guys who is the future of this division, coming out and doing what he did against Dustin Poirier. Although he lost the fight, it was a devastating war. That’s definitely a fight that’s interesting and he has my attention.
