“That Could Be Bad for Conor”- Former UFC antagonist warns Conor McGregor for his upcoming fight with Michael Chandler
Conor McGregor and his highly-anticipated return to the UFC have got the MMA realm buzzing with excitement. While many eagerly await his forthcoming bout against Michael Chandler, former featherweight Chad Mendes has raised concerns about McGregor’s game, and issued a stern warning to the Irishman.
In a recent tete-a-tete with Cameron Hayes, Mendes advised Chandler to utilize his outstanding wrestling skills against McGregor. “Man, I’m really hoping that Mike can see a lot of his wrestling. Mike’s got great wrestling,” Mendes said.

Mendes also suggested that Chandler incorporate calf kicks, which have proven efficacious against McGregor in recent contests. Mendes hardly stopped there, however.
He went on to predict that Chandler would arise as the winner in a potential fight against McGregor. “I think he beats Conor. I’m curious to see what type of Conor we have. You know he’s been out for a long time,” he said.
Despite Mendes’ caution, McGregor remains a challenging contender with a track record of impressive victories. He has been training tough and has addressed his weaknesses before he steps into the Octagon once again.
The world of combat sports eagerly expects his return. Fans will have to be on the lookout for whether he can rise to the challenge and reclaim his place as a top contender in the lightweight division.

Past opponent Chad Mendes, on the other hand, is skeptical of McGregor’s capability to deal with Michael Chandler’s calf kicks and wrestling. Mendes also asserts that if the two fought, Chandler would win.
The question is whether McGregor has been out of the game for too long. Can he be able to withstand Chandler’s constant onslaught and better cardio? The only way to find out is to wait and watch.
Yet one thing is certain: the Octagon is an unpredictable and harsh environment in which one mistake may cost a fighter the whole contest.
As is customary in the realm of combat sports, anything may happen inside the octagon. McGregor vs. Chandler is building up to be a great fight, and fans can’t wait to see it.
