Chael Sonnen Lauds Conor McGregor’s Demand To Fight Michael Chandler In UFC 303

Chael Sonnen claims that although the battle is scheduled to last five rounds, McGregor first declared he would insist on a three-round match. The former middleweight champion of the UFC valued McGregor's admission of his limitations. Sonnen continued by arguing that a shorter bout would have aided McGregor's prospects of defeating Chandler and facilitated his recuperation from a serious injury.

Chael Sonnen claims that although the battle is scheduled to last five rounds, McGregor first declared he would insist on a three-round match. The former middleweight champion of the UFC valued McGregor's admission of his limitations.
Sonnen continued by arguing that a shorter bout would have aided McGregor's prospects of defeating Chandler and facilitated his recuperation from a serious injury. McGregor's longest injury-related hiatus, lasting more than two years, was caused by a leg ailment.
"You touched on how wise it was that Conor would ask for three rounds and I agree with you. That was wise. And you know what Daniel? It’s a very rare glimpse when Conor pokes his head up to being the real guy. The real guy that once was a little boy with no money and in a big dream. A sweaty gym bag and he was willing to work hard. When you see him ask for three rounds, 'cause he's aware of where he's at," said Sonnen, via Sportskeeda.
"When you see him ask for three rounds because he knows it ups his chances, I respect that stuff. I like it when I see that Conor. I like when that little boy resurfaces that’s got a dream and knows, hey, sometimes you gotta dip your toe back in the water. Even though he's a superman, he is not Superman. Coming off a leg injury like that, he is not immortal, he is not divine. I mean I like what he was saying," added Sonnen.
Michael Bisping, a former UFC champion, has some suggestions for Conor McGregor's upcoming opponent. Max Holloway and his incredible victory over Justin Gaethje to become the new BMF champion were brought up by Bisping. Holloway is currently in a good position to demand a number of fights, including a rematch with the returning McGregor. McGregor would undoubtedly be eyeing the BMF belt, according to Bisping.
"He [Holloway] is in a position to challenge Islam Makhachev. [Holloway] is also in a position to get a rematch with Conor McGregor. Because Conor McGregor has a victory over him. Don’t tell me Conor McGregor is not looking at that BMF belt, we know Conor is coming back. There is a potential for that there. He has just flipped the script," said Bisping on TNT Sports.
