Michael Chandler is finally going to lock horns with returning former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor at the main event of UFC 303. The event will take place on June 29, 2024, at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, part of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, United States.

Michael Chandler recently made an appearance on the YouTube channel of the Shawn Ryan Show, where he revealed his strategy against Conor McGregor. 

Michael Chandler said, "I would say he's the better striker from a crisp, longer, more sniping standpoint. He's got that great step back left. He has had great success with guys who aggressively fight him and who are a little bit shorter than him. Stocky wrestlers with an overhand, he calls it. You know, there was Khabib, there was Chad Mendes, there was Eddie Alvarez."

"So I think what I need to work on for this fight is continue to be the best version of myself, maybe a little bit more tactical, realizing that I've earned this. Realize that I am the better fighter. I am the tougher fighter. I am the guy who deserves it more."
