Michael Chandler clearly has been in the line of fire of his Lightweight counterparts over the last week. After number eight-ranked Lightweight Arman Tsarukyan called him a low IQ fighter on Twitter, another fighter has set his sights on the former Bellator champ. Mateusz Gamrot, in a recent Instagram post, uploaded a video aimed at Chandler. The post was a clear call out of the 36-year-old, who in the video claimed that he hasn’t watched any of Gamrot‘s fights. It ended up stirring up quite a few reactions from the fans of the Polish mixed martial artist, with some even calling a possible fight a passing of the torch to the newer generation of fighters.
