Michael Chandler had a awfully sturdy reaction to Charles Oliveira’s win at UFC 269 – and particularly, Dustin Poirier’s loss.
The one-time UFC light-weight contestant insinuated that Poirier quit once he tapped bent on a rear-naked choke within the third spherical of Saturday’s pay-per-view performing artist, vowing he’d see Oliveira once more for a repeat of their UFC 262 meeting he lost via knockout.
Not diverted by Chandler’s observations was Bellator featherweight champion Patricio Pitbull, United Nations agency knocked out Chandler in 2019 to capture the light-weight title.
In fact, Chandler did verbally withstand strikes in a very 2014 repeat with former Bellator light-weight champ can Brooks at Bellator 131. He rebounded with four-fight run that culminated in a very knockout convert Pitbull’s brother, Patricky Pitbull, to reclaim the title, further as a convert ex-UFC champ Benson Henderson to defend it.
The method Chandler sees it, he’s in prime position for an additional comeback, critics be damned.
