Conor McGregor promises to “slice through” Michael Chandler
Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor and former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler are set to coach the Ultimate Fighter season 31, before facing each other in the octagon.
Interviewed at the UFC PI in Las Vegas, “The Notorious” gave his take on fellow coach, and next opponent, Chandler.
“I’ve got no issues with him at all. I think he’s a good fighter. Coaching against him, I’m interested to see his coaching style. He’s more of an athlete type of a guy than a technical martial artist. I know he’s got some skills in the wrestling department, and he’s got some skills overall. But as far as the small, finer details, I’m interested to see,” McGregor told MacLife.

Conor McGregor: “I think I’m just going to slice through him”
The Irish superstar looks forward to coaching against Chandler on the show before facing him in the cage, and has no doubt that he will defeat the No. 5 ranked lightweight, in whatever weight class.
“I think I’m just going to slice through him,” McGregor said. “I think I’m a little too slicy for him, than anyone he’s fought – a little too snappy and whippy. I think I’ll slice through him.”
Both Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler are 1-3 in their last four UFC fights and both come from losses. At this point, no date, venue or location is set for the bout.
