UFC President Dana White admits he liked the fight between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler.

Dana White is tempted by the prospect that Conor McGregor will have a super fight with Michael Chandler.

It is reported that McGregor will return to Fighting Cage soon. His comeback has been the talk of town since he announced he could now spar.

However, the UFC has remained silent about the potential opponent to face McGregor after a difficult 2021 year.

But Dana White seems to have found a way for the Irish superstar to return.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Dana White admits Conor McGregor could fight Michael Chandler for his comeback game.

Dana White recently sat down for an interview with TMZ.

During the session, White was asked if he would fight Conor McGregor when Jorge Masvidal returns to the Octagon.

However, White did not appear to participate in the fight. Nevertheless, he confessed that he had other opponents on his mind for Notorious.

The 52-year-old president has revealed that McGregor’s comeback fight could be against lightweight Michael Chandler.

The veteran UFC promoter said: ‘I really like Chandler v. Connor after Chandler’s last fight. There are many fights to do. I don’t know if it is that one. We’ll see what the landscape looks like when Connor comes back.’

Chandler’s last fight was at UFC 274 in May. He returns after a thrilling win streak against Tony Ferguson on a two-game losing streak. Iron Mike knocked out El Cucuy with a forefoot in 17 seconds in round two. It was one of the most brutal knockouts to threaten the entire stadium.

‘I’m talking after his last,’ White said. [Octagon] Interview, his last fight, Connor’s 8th place. [Michael’s] 5th place. It makes sense right now.’

Meanwhile, McGregor hasn’t fought in a fighting cage since UFC 264 in July 2021. The 33-year-old wrestler horribly broke his leg in a trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier. He is said to be in the final stages of recovery.

White has noted that McGregor’s return is approaching.

“It seems to get better the better,” he said. He’s started to step up his training and hopes to be at the end of this year or early next year.’

Michael Chandler vs Conor McGregor at lightweight or welterweight?

Conor McGregor usually grants his wishes. He offered to fight in the welterweight division when he returns. So a bout could happen at welterweight.

However, a lightweight matchup looks more plausible as he is aiming for a 155-pound UFC gold medal.
