After the fight, Chandler called out Conor McGregor and also asked for a rematch against Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje. However, the fighter is not done with his call-outs just yet. He recently took to Twitter to call out the Stockton native, Nate Diaz. Diaz revealed that he’ll be fighting at 170 lbs in July. Chandler offered to take Diaz up on this.

Not only that, Chandler also took a dig at Nate Diaz after the callout and thrashed him via Twitter. He wrote, “shut up and stop complaining. Keep your mouth shut. Keep your head down until your daddy books a fight for you to get your sacrificial dome bounced off the canvas again. Maybe it’ll be me… if you’re lucky. See you at the top!”

Diaz has been beefing with McGregor for a while and has been trying to get him in the octagon for a trilogy bout. The welterweight is currently on the last fight of his UFC contract, with no talks of renewal yet. This could very well be his last UFC fight.
