UFC number sixth ranked lightweight fighter, who was supposed to finally return to the UFC octagon after a long layoff to fight his dream opponent Conor McGregor at UFC 303 pay-per-view, has yet again shared a massive hint on his enormous fight with Mystic Mac getting the result for this year. 

A fan account on X (Formerly Twitter) user named Josh commented under Michael Chandler’s post and quoted, “(Michael) Chandler vs. (Conor) McGregor is going down September 14,” hinting at a potential date for the Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler UFC fight.

Michael Chandler confirmed the prediction of the fan by quoting the post and saying, “Loading.” Iron Chandler later had a fun fan question-and-answer session on his official X (formerly known as Twitter).       

Why was Conor McGregor’s return match canceled? 

Initially, Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler were scheduled to lock horns and headline UFC 303 pay-per-view last month on June 29, 2024, at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, part of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, United States.

Unfortunately, the UFC had to cancel the UFC 303 main event match-up between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler after Mystic Mac injured his toe during a sparring session. Notorious was without safety gear while he was preparing his Octagon return.
