Since the previous year, Michael Chandler has been waiting for Conor McGregor. The two coaches for season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter were scheduled to square off in the championship match.

Due to McGregor’s refusal to join USADA’s testing pool, everything quickly broke apart and there was a protracted delay. Michael Chandler bravely shared his prediction regarding the fight in an interview with The Mac Life on YouTube prior to their UFC 303 matchup.

“I still see the outcome the same way, I think I’ll put him on his backfoot the first round, make him second guess himself in the first round….and finish him in the second.”
