I think McGregor can still beat Chandler, but he'll have to do the training of a lifetime, regaining the hunger he had at featherweight.

McGregor will have like 2-3 mins max to win, than it'll be ALL Chandler.

Ferguson was landing on Chandler pretty decent in R1.

I should say Conor has 2 rounds, then he will gas out (question is also about Chandler durability at 185 lbs lol )

I don't know ... this fight makes me laugh

McGregor vs. Chandler
Michael Chandler, TKO, R2
if Chandler's chin can hold up, I think he takes this fight implementing a similar strategy to Poirier - kick the legs. Conor knows how to check leg kicks, but he clearly struggles with that low calf kick, as many fighters do - it's not easy to defend as we might think it is. I see the added weight as a huge detriment to Conor, because the same benefits he's getting is also what Chandler can enjoy as well, maybe even more so seeing how Chandler is very explosive and Conor is more timing/counter based in his approach. If Chandler can survive the shots that Conor will hit him with, I don't even think he'll need to fall back on any grappling/wrestling, I honestly think if Chandler can land clean leg kicks he will beat Conor in the stand-up, he just needs to get out of the 1st round.

I'm starting to think this is actually confirmed because apparently Chandler is in camp for it.
