It does not get any bigger than fighting Conor McGregor: Michael Chandler

“It’s not because I want the fight by any means because obviously people could talk about the red panty night and they talk about, ‘he’ll do whatever, he’s thirsty’ and blah, blah, blah. It’s like, no, I want battle grounds of epic proportions. The lights don’t get any brighter and the stage does not get any bigger than fighting Conor McGregor.”
“Conor McGregor was going to coach this season of The Ultimate Fighter and he’s like, ‘yeah, I’ll do it, but I’m bringing two guys that I want to make it right onto the show.’ Then, of course, the f**king media [says], ‘oh, that’s not fair, and what happened to those guys?’ Shut the f**k up. We’ll take care of the guys that aren’t on it, and this is what Conor wants, we’ll give it to him.”
