Conor McGregor – like the world – was watching UFC 274 Saturday night.

And like everyone else, McGregor heard the challenge laid down by Michael Chandler.

Chandler scored a thunderous finish of Tony Ferguson in a featured contest, connecting with a front-kick. Moments later, the former champion laid down a challenge to McGregor.

And McGregor responded.

“I’d have a nice knock off this guy, no doubt about it,” he posted on Twitter. “A firework spectacle. I like the 170 shout also. Tipped him over. I’m definitely game to fight this guy at some stage in my career.

“I see it happening after tonight. Congrats on a solid win Michael and another barnstormer.”

If you missed it, or want to see it again, here is the finish by Chandler.

And the call-out by Chandler to McGregor.
