The former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor lost his most recent fight, to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021 due to a serious leg fracture that required medical stoppage. Iron's calculated goal is to use McGregor's seeming ring rust to his advantage in order to prevail in the fight.
Chandler discussed his strategy for facing McGregor in a recent interview with Shawn Ryan. He also stated that he thinks he is a more skilled fighter than his opponent.
"What I need to work on in this fight is to continue to be the best version of myself, maybe a little bit more tactical. Realize that I'm a better fighter, a tougher fighter, and the guy who deserves it more. Whether that be getting in his face, putting him up against the cage, picking him up, putting him down, welting his spirit a little bit more, and getting the wind out of his cells," said Chandler during an interview with Shawn Ryan.
"I don't need to get into a firefight with a guy who has a bigger rifle than me, and I think I hit harder than he does. His time out of the cage has lent itself to his timing, movement and reflexes not being what they used to be. I will go out there and get the finish and absolutely outclass and dominate him," Chandler added.
Chandler lost by submission in his most recent fight, which happened at UFC 281 in November 2022 against "The Diamond." With two victories and three defeats since joining the organization in January 2021, he currently holds the UFC record. In a recent interview with Ariel Hewlani on The MMA Hour, Michael Chandler discussed the circulating reports that Conor McGregor would rather fight in a three-round match at UFC 303 than the traditional five-round main event.
"Iron" made it clear that although the proposal was made in his direction, he was able to work out a five-round fight instead.
"It was very interesting. When I heard it [the three-round reports] later on, I liked five rounds... I like the idea of the training camp you have to put in for five rounds... One of us wants it, and one of us doesn't. That's a good indicator of who's ready to go to battle. I'm excited, and I'm glad it's five rounds. I think it was more discussed on his side more than it was on my side," he stated.
