Michael Chandler Calls For Nate Diaz Fight At Noche UFC While Dissing Conor McGregor

Michael Chandler appears to be entertaining the idea of fighting someone other than Conor McGregor next, suggesting that he’d be interested in fighting Nate Diaz at the upcoming UFC 306 event in September at The Sphere in Las Vegas, aka ‘Riyadh Season Noche FC’.

“Better idea – me and @NateDiaz209 fight like real men, while Conor sits on a yacht and watches on PPV in his slippers. #ufcnoche #riyadhseason,” Chandler wrote on X.

Chandler then went on to take a few more pot-shots at his rival McGregor.

“The new “Where’s Waldo” – the Mac Daddy had a great run though….,” Chandler wrote in response to a fan who had stated that, “Conor won’t fight again.”

Meanwhile, Chandler also replied to a fan asking what his strategy for fighting McGregor is.

“Instill fear…let him pull out of the fight and embarrass himself, be known as the guy who retired McGregor without ever throwing a punch….,” Chandled stated.

Whether Diaz would be interested in fighting Chandler is another matter though.

On Saturday night the Stockton star avenged a loss against Jorge Masvidal by beating him on the scorecards in a boxing match and then went on to declare his interest in rematching Jake Paul in the boxing ring, or fighting UFC welterweight champ Leon Edwards.
