Michael Chandler on team McGregor’s “stale” tactics

Michael Chandler recently appeared on The MMA Hour Show. He spoke with Ariel Helwani about the potential match-up and the mind games McGregor and his coach John Kavanagh like to play with opponents. Clearly, he had studied their usual game plan with all the social media and coverage they usually get.

“These guys (McGregor and Kavanagh) are very good at creating their own narrative and throwing little breadcrumbs out there that are just stale as heck and not even a mouse would eat them all right?” said Chandler. “So just remember when they say things, maybe it’s true maybe it’s not true.”
“I’ve seen Conor talk about other opponents, I’ve seen Conor talk about different dates, I’ve seen Conor you know completely dismiss me and act like the fight with me is not happening. These are all ways that these guys try to get inside of people’s heads. Unluckily for them your boy’s bulletproof.”
Chandler is well aware of McGregor’s tactics. Rumors about the fight not happening are afloat and everyone’s speculating something new over every new detail or hint dropped by McGregor’s team. It’s clear now that causing confusion is just the first step of the mind games.
