After knocking out Dan Hooker in the first round, Michael chandler had his dream debut in UFC and wants to go for everything. The American left a fearsome image for his rivals in the Lightweight and, after being champion in Bellator, wants to reign in the leading company of Mixed Martial Arts. Now, to put on the crown in his second fight, he assures that he waits for Khabib Nurmagomedov to send him to sleep.
First, Chandler He acknowledged: ‘I think he has unfinished business. I think 29-0 is not enough for him. He wants 30-0 but it has to be the right challenge. That is really an interesting aspect. He already beat Justin Gaethje. He already beat Conor McGregor. He already beat Dustin Poirier. He has already beaten practically everyone in the top five, apart from me and Charles Oliveira. I think my work talks about that.
«I think my experience in wrestling speaks to that. I think my resume is almost 50/50 when it comes to knockouts and submissions, superior control, damage and submission play, which I bring to the table, but I have to go out there and beat whoever they put in front of them. Whether it’s for the title or not, then I have to win the title, maybe defend it once, show that I can knock people out, “he dictated.
Wants to be the king
At the same time, Michael He recounted: «Show that I can fight and fight people, fight with the best and I think that showing that complete fighter will be enough to attract Khabib to go out and try your 30-0 quest. But I have a cunning suspicion that it will end with 29 and Chandler. The only question I would ask about Charles Oliveira is that he is not a great 155’er. He’s not a very powerful guy. He is not a very strong boy physically nor a boy too gifted for the sport ».
«I like the style of Charles Oliveira in the fact that he jogs forward, his stroke has improved, he is extremely skilled with his jiu-jitsu. But when you talk about Khabib, when you’re talking about the strongest guy in the division, the strongest fighter, the strongest fighter, the strongest submission artist you’ve seen in Justin Gaethje’s last fight, plus the guy isn’t afraid to show up. in a shootout, these are all the questions that need to be answered when talking about Khabib, “he closed Michael chandler.
