Michael Chandler weighs in on uncertainty surrounds Conor McGregor’s UFC comeback: “No joke, where the fo*k is that guy?”

Conor McGregor has not stepped inside the UFC octagon for nearly two years now. Owing to the fact that The Notorious suffered a brutal leg injury in his last fight against Dustin Poirier that took place at the UFC 264 PPV in July 2021. However, the Irishman has recovered from his injury and is all set to make his much-awaited return against former lightweight title contender Michael Chandler. 

Both the lightweights are going through a rough patch in their respective careers as they have only won once in their last four fights. Therefore fans are very excited about this matchup as there is a lot at stake. Moreover, they are entertaining fighters with aggressive styles which makes it fun to watch whenever they compete inside the octagon.

Michael Chandler raises doubts over Conor McGregor’s UFC Return

Michael Chandler is worried that his bout against Conor McGregor will not take place this year after the latter missed the final date to enter the USADA testing pool. He expressed his concern on Twitter and mocked the Irishman by making a change to his famous catchphrase “Who the f**k is that guy?”

“Alright guys, you guys have all seen the news. Conor is not in USADA. 179 days left until December 16th which is supposed to be the last PPV of the year. Comically, USADA shows up at my door today to add insult to injury. Where you at boy?”

Conor McGregor’s UFC comeback set to be delayed

Last month Conor McGregor gave a positive update that he will enter the USADA testing pool before the release of the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter. However, the Irishman has not stayed true to his words. As of now, The Notorious has not entered the testing pool and the final date has passed.

With that being said, The Irishman will most likely fight Michael Chandler in January or February 2024. It is needless to say that this is a big blow for UFC as well as Michael Chandler. Because the promotion was targeting this bout to take place at the December PPV. 

Meanwhile, Michael Chandler who was raring to get inside the octagon for a scrap will have to wait for more than six months for his next fight. Do let us know in the comments section your thoughts on Conor delaying his upcoming fight.
