Michael Chandler hints at moving past Conor McGregor

Michael Chandler has decided to move on from Conor McGregor and has called out Nate Diaz for a UFC 306 showdown instead. ‘Iron’ took to social media to claim that he and Nate Diaz are still real fighters while McGregor is inactive.

In his latest social media tirade, Chandler even claimed that he’d be known as the guy who retired McGregor without even throwing a punch. McGregor and Chandler were scheduled to headline UFC 303 but the fight had to be canceled due to an injury to the Irishman.

 

Michael Chandler, who recently hinted that he could fight Conor McGregor at the Sphere, has now called out Nate Diaz. He quoted a fan who claimed Nate Diaz should return to the UFC after McGregor retires Chandler. ‘Iron’ wrote,

“Sit down, Ron… better idea - me and @NateDiaz209 fight like real men, while Conor sits on a yacht and watches on PPV in his slippers. #ufcnoche #riyadhseason.”

 


When one fan claimed McGregor would never fight in the UFC again, Chandler wrote, “The new “Where’s Waldo” - the Mac Daddy had a great run though….”

 


When one fan asked what’s Chandler’s strategy against someone like McGregor, he wrote, “Instill fear…let him pull out of the fight and embarrass himself, be known as the guy who retired McGregor without ever throwing a punch….”


Conor McGregor pulled out of UFC 303 with a toe injury and there’s no official word yet about his return. Michael Chandler has now started taunting the Irishman on social media and is even ready for other potential options.
