Michael Chandler plans to retire Conor McGregor ‘without ever throwing a punch’

Michael Chandler believes he may get an unofficial win over Conor McGregor without ever having to throw a strike.

Chandler and McGregor were slated to square off in the main event of UFC 303 this past month, but an injury delayed the long-awaited return of McGregor. Despite there being hope the fight can be rebooked for later this year, nothing has been announced, or remotely been made official in regards to that.

On Tuesday, the former Bellator champion took the time to respond to a few fans on Twitter, and took some shots at his foe in the process. When asked what his strategy would be for McGregor, “Iron” went outside of the box.

“Instill fear,” Chandler responded. “Let him pull out of the fight and embarrass himself, be known as the guy who retired McGregor without ever throwing a punch.”

Chandler also continued teasing that the matchup with McGregor could take place at UFC 306 in September — the promotion’s debut at Sphere in Las Vegas — while also laid down a challenge to longtime McGregor rival Nate Diaz.
