Michael Chandler has also made a similar claim, setting the stage for McGregor to potentially make a triumphant return in UFC 300.

‘Mystic Mac’ has been earnestly striving to make his return to the arena, and in his latest endeavor, the Dubliner is finally putting forth a determined effort. With McGregor submitting his samples to the USADA pool, it appears evident that the fighter will need to endure a six-month waiting period before gracing the octagon once more. Michael Chandler echoing similar sentiments makes it increasingly likely that UFC 300 could see the comeback of the former dual-weight champion.

In strategizing McGregor’s return, it would be most advantageous for both McGregor himself and the promotional entity to strategically align with UFC 300. This pivotal juncture possesses the latent capacity to metamorphose the entire occasion into an awe-inspiring spectacle, ultimately gathering a substantial attendance and significantly elevating remuneration for not only the UFC but also for McGregor.

Michael Chandler’s opinion on Mcgregor’s comeback

Michael Chandler was always sure that Conor Mcgregor would have his return around the big event of UFC 300. While having a conversation with Ariel Helwani he emphasized that he is confident about the fight to happen. However, he had no idea about the date of the potential match. Chandler further stressed that there’s no chance McGregor will return without facing him; his comeback hinges on this showdown.

In the conversation, Chandler added “Obviously, it makes a lot of sense that there is a very historic card [UFC 300] coming up with the UFC, I haven’t been told that is when it is going to be, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that is when it is. If it is, I got more and more time to prepare. I have never had this much time to prepare for one certain guy, one certain opponent. So, me and my team are training here in Nashville, and also when I go down to Florida are going to put together a game plan to knock this dude out in the first round or two.”
