Could we be seeing “dream fight” in 2022 between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler?

Following Chandler’s tough UFC 268 loss to Justin Gaethje, he proposed such an encounter in the coming year.

And guess what? McGregor seems ready to accept.

On social media, Chandler posted a photoshop picture of himself and the former champion with “2022” added. 

It didn’t take McGregor long to see it and respond.

“I’m down at some stage for sure,” he said. “Great fight the other night Mike, congrats!”

Chandler replied back “Thank you sir. It would be my pleasure. See you soon.”

The two have long been situated atop their respective divisions and promotions. While McGregor was ruling the UFC, Chandler was the champion in Bellator.

Since, Chandler has moved over to the UFC while McGregor has been hit-and-miss as an active fighter. 

Is this a bout that would excite you for 2022? Or do you think there is a better match for either McGregor or Chandler?
