Michael Chandler responds to speculation of UFC 300 fight against Conor McGregor

In the ever-evolving saga of Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler's impending clash, McGregor's coach teasing a potential showdown at UFC 300 has further fueled speculation.

However, in a recent appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, the former Bellator lightweight champion maintained a measured stance. When questioned about the likelihood of facing the Irishman at UFC 300, Chandler navigated through the buzz with poise while acknowledging Conor McGregor and his team's knack for weaving narratives:

"These guys are very good at creating their own narrative and throwing little breadcrumbs out there. That are just stale as heck not even a mouse would eat."

Chandler emphasized that he doesn't need animosity to step into the cage and give his best, leaving room for the fight to speak for itself. Highlighting McGregor's tendency to dismiss opponents and throw verbal jabs, Chandler remained unfazed, asserting:

"These are all ways that these guys try to get inside of people's heads. Unluckily for them, your boy's bulletproof."
