Highly sought-after MMA fighter Michael Chandler appears open to the possibility of a welterweight title shot if he manages to defeat Conor McGregor

As former three-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler anticipates his next fight with Conor McGregor, he envisions numerous exciting opportunities available to him in the welterweight division. While both Chandler and McGregor have fought primarily as lightweights, they are interested in a fight at 170 pounds.

Chandler believes he has potential for a title shot with a win over McGregor and hopes to fight Islam Makhachev or whoever has the title at that point. He also expresses interest in potential fights with Jorge Masvidal, Colby Covington, or Nate Diaz, emphasizing his preference for big, exciting fights. Despite playing in the welterweight division early in his career before dropping down to 155 pounds and staying there for his first five fights, Chandler remains open to the new possibilities that await him at 170 pounds.

The inclusion of Chandler into the division only adds to the ongoing argument for the next title shot, with Covington appearing to be the favorite. Chandler’s plans for the future are unwavering, as he hopes his fight with McGregor will take place in November at Madison Square Garden. Regardless of when the fight happens, Chandler is eager for the opportunity to bring his knockout power to the ring and go head-to-head with McGregor. He remains confident in his ability to come out victorious and has his eyes on the prize.
