Michael Chandler sends warning threat to Islam Makhachev: ‘I have a plan and you’re part of it, champ’


Michael Chandler may be sticking to his guns and patiently awaiting a fight with UFC star, Conor McGregor, however, that hasn’t stopped the Missouri native from chasing a future title challenge with incumbent gold holder, Islam Makhachev.

Chandler, currently ranked as the number six lightweight contender in the world, has been sidelined from 2022. During this time, he competed five times in the Octagon, since his debut with the organization in January the previous year.
