Living legend of MMA, Conor McGregor may be close to retirement from the sport, at least in the view of Michael chandler. Chosen to face the Irishman in the fight that marks the return of the 'Notório' to the Octagon after almost three years of inactivity, the North American suggested that his rival should say goodbye to the sport after the clash. In an interview with 'The MMA Fighting', the athlete explained his thoughts.

“I’m not saying I’m going to retire him. Let's see his level of competition against a high-level rival, whether at lightweight (up to 70,3kg) or welterweight (up to 77,1kg). I'm a ranked fighter. (…) It could be the last time we see him fight. So people need to buy the 'pay-per-view' because it could be their last performance. Next, the spotlight will be on me,” said Chandler.

A popular phenomenon in martial arts, McGregor has not competed since July 2021. At the time, the Irishman suffered a serious injury in the defeat against Dustin poirier.

Willing to become another tormentor in Conor's career, Michael will return to the octagon after more than a season of inactivity. Last year, the North American lived with uncertainty regarding confirmation of the fight, and chose to wait for the fight to become official.
