The American fighter extraordinaire couldn’t beat Charles Oliveira at UFC 262 and, beyond that, says he wants to go after the top five in the Lightweight division. In that way, speaking with MMA Fighting, the former Bellator champion assured that it was only a stumble.
In that sense, Chandler He said, ‘The moment now is the problem. I just fought eight days ago, 10 days ago, whatever it is, he hasn’t fought in eight or 10 months right now. It will be a matter of time. You have Beneil Dariush, who just fought, obviously wants some time off for his family. Who knows. All I know, the top five in UFC they’re plentiful when it comes to talent and that’s a fight I’d appreciate. “
“It just has to make sense on the timeline and I’ll tell you what, people will be eager to see that fight. Well first, you can’t look at the top five, at the top six and there are scenarios where we are all bad matches with each other and we are all good matches with each other. It is the entire upper echelon, ”commented the American.
It will not stop
At the same time, Michael He said: ‘He’s in the top five, the top six on the planet in a given weight class. I’ll tell you this: If Eddie Alvarez can beat Justin Gaethje, I can definitely beat Justin Gaethje. I will not just give him a TKO. I think I’ll knock Justin Gaethje unconscious. I’ll keep up a high beat like Eddie did. It will be a very fun fight. It’s a fight people want to see.
I appreciate Eddie. Eddie is a boy, with whom I spent almost 50 minutes in the cage. We never made that trilogy happen, so maybe at some point, we can make it happen. Everything is part of that. You have to respect Eddie. Eddie is a legend. He is 100 percent a Hall of Famer when it comes to lightweights. One of the best lightweights of all time. I’m going to have to have a conversation with him and see what he thinks, “he concluded. Michael chandler.
