Michael Chandler Confirms He’s Fighting Conor McGregor This Summer

It appears that we’re finally going to get the Conor McGregor-Michael Chandler fight.

During an appearance on the Pound 4 Pound podcast, UFC CEO Dana White said that he was waiting for McGregor to finish his media obligations to begin plotting a chart for McGregor’s return.

โ€œSo once this movie launches, which is Thursday, this thing launches Thursday the 21st, and boom โ€” I donโ€™t know what his obligations are once it launches, then Conor can get back in the gym and start training. Like full-time, getting ready for a camp.โ€ said White

McGregor himself confirmed the fight would be happening in the summer on June 29th during International Fight Week.

On Friday, TMZ spoke with McGregor’s opponent Michael Chandler, who says he feels the fight will happen this summer.

“I’ve got the official announcement but it’s happening this summer, I can’t give you the official date but it’s happening this summer.”

We’ll have to wait and see when the fight is officially announced.
