Dana White announces possible venues for Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler bout amid UFC 284 fever

Everyone knows that Conor McGregor is UFC’s cash cow! Despite him not winning any significant fights for a very long while, every time he comes back, UFC fans seem to become hopeful for the return of the ‘Notorious’ of old. Dana White being the businessman that he is knows very well to cash in on this opportunity and reveal some juicy info.

White may forget the name of the current Lightweight champion, but he certainly knows that fans like to see Conor trash-talking the living hell out of his opponents. That is probably why the ‘Mystic Mac’ will appear on a new season of TUF so that fans can see more of him. Dana discussed the fight,

“People were asking me earlier about the Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler fight and [wondering] where it’s going to be. We don’t know yet, we’re kind of working that out. But to go to [AT&T] Stadium, you have to have the right fight. Conor and Chandler are doing The Ultimate Fighter this year.”

“They’re coaching it, and it’s the first time it’s going to be on ESPN the network — which will make the fight even bigger. Dallas, [AT&T] Stadium is a possibility. They’re in the running for the fight. When you look at a fight of that magnitude, you have to look at Madison Square Garden, obviously Vegas — which we could do the stadium there, or T-Mobile Arena — [AT&T] Stadium, or you could do a massive stadium in London.” he further added.

Where should Dana White host the McGregor vs Chandler fight?

The UFC Apex at Vegas needs to get disqualified first. It has a smaller Octagon and a smaller space for crowds. A fight of this level should attract a lot of fans and Vegas can’t provide adequate sitting arrangements. London is a good option but we can’t guarantee they will spend so much money on someone, not from their own country.
