Conor McGregor says the fight against Michael Chandler has been rescheduled

Denying any possibility of ever stepping into the Octagon or even switching opponents, the Notorious confirmed that the fight has been rescheduled to “new date.”

“I had some concentration, I had to reschedule the fight,” McGregor said. “I’ve done it before, I’ve done the walk many times under those circumstances, and given these tramps an advantage over me they don’t even deserve.” He further added.

“Now I’m phoning it in, I’m getting these training camps right, I’m going in there 100% Conor McGregor, injury free.”

Needless to say, fans will be waiting for the new date, and the excitement behind watching Conor McGregor inside the Octagon once again continues to be the biggest talking point in the world of mixed martial arts.
