๐Ÿšจ Michael Chandler left with egg on his face following Conor McGregor fight postponement

Posted by

The news broke overnight that Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler was cancelled due to an injury to the Irishman.

The rumours have been proven to be true, with โ€˜The Notoriousโ€ long-waited return cancelled.

Its been just short of THREE years since McGregor competed in the Octagon, when he suffered a brutal leg injury in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier.

Dana White took to social media to announce that the new main event of UFC 303 would be Alex Pereira vs. Jiri Prochรกzka.

Hours before the cancellation announcement Chandler had also taken to X formerly Twitter when he bizarrely wrote:

โ€˜#mmafactoftheday โ€“ Amount of times these fighters have pulled out of fights in their entire careers.

@TheNotoriousMMA โ€“ 0

@MikeChandlerMMA โ€“ 0

#ufc303โ€™

It seems a strange thing to post just before McGregor was officially pulled from the main event.

The UFC is hoping to make the McGregor vs. Chandler fight for either late August or September as per MMA insider Ariel Helwani.
