In an unexpected turn of events, former three-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler seized the spotlight during WWE Monday Night RAW in Anaheim. Utilizing his microphone time to full effect, Chandler delivered a passionate promo aimed directly at UFC superstar Conor McGregor, reigniting the flames of their long-discussed but still elusive showdown.

Addressing the Anaheim crowd with fervour, Chandler declared, “Hey, what’s up Anaheim! You are now in the presence of the most entertaining UFC fighter on the planet. Hey, now there’s a man from Ireland who’s been making me wait for way too long, and I’ve still got one dude on my mind! Conor McGregor, get your candy ass back to the octagon! We’ve got some unfinished business, boys! God bless. I’ll see you at the top!”

At 37 years old, Chandler's return to the UFC has been speculated upon since his coaching stint opposite McGregor on The Ultimate Fighter 31 in early 2023. Following a protracted saga, McGregor had purportedly announced a comeback bout against Chandler on New Year’s Eve, slated for June 29 at the UFC’s annual International Fight Week pay-per-view. However, UFC CEO Dana White swiftly refuted McGregor's claims, insisting that no such fight had been arranged for the former two-division champion. White reiterated this stance following UFC 298, asserting that McGregor's return date remains uncertain.

McGregor, 35, has been sidelined since sustaining a broken leg during his July 2021 bout against Dustin Poirier. Despite his recovery, McGregor has voiced frustration over the lack of UFC bookings, expressing eagerness to step back into the octagon.

Chandler's bold move to call out McGregor on a WWE platform adds a new dimension to their ongoing narrative, intensifying anticipation among fans for a potential clash between two formidable competitors. As speculation continues to swirl, the MMA world eagerly awaits any developments in the saga between Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor
