    Uncle Chael rightfully slams Michael Chandler for using the excuse of not having a camp for ducking Tony Ferguson at UFC 256.

    Chael argues that the fighters have one job & responsibility outside of fight night which is to be preparing for their next fight.

    Chael also rightfully says this is a common locker room wolf ticket sold to the public and that all fighters know this is bullshit but don't make a big deal out of it as they will likely use the excuse themselves at some point.

    Sonnen never ducked an opponent but often folded when the fight got tough. I respect him, but his opinion is made less relevant by his PED use and his incessant need to state his opinion on every single piece of MMA news/rumors.

    As always, Chael is correct.

    His opinion has probably made him a lot of money outside fighting.

    Chandler is a much better fighter than Chael ever was

    people on here have their likes at and all. Chael has 700k+ subs on yt and much more money/success than any of us. What he did in the octagon is small compared to what he is now. He transcended and became more than just a fighter.

    Chael is the MMA commentator we need, otherwise we get Steven A. Smith.

    He knows how to market and how to kill momentum... Chandler killed momentum.

    Chandler is the hot commodity at LW now.

    Tony is the guy coming off a horrific life changing beatdown

    Being the second person to beat someone is not as good as being the first, or fighting for the belt

    can’t say I agree. Chael has a much better resume against top 10 fighters and dominated a lot of them. I like chandler a lot but it’s actually not even close

    Chael :
    - Okami
    - Marquardt
    - D.Miller (top 10 at time)
    - Bisping
    - subbed shogun
    - Filho (top 5 at the time)
    - fought for ufc title 3 times and almost won once.

    Chandler:
    - Patrickey
    - Eddie Alvarez

    Chandler fights in a much better division than the garbage MW division that Anderson reigned over

    Better division for a 2nd rate organization with very few top LW fighters. No point though because you're either a troll or just don't know jack shit about mma. I honestly don't think you've watched any of the fights I just listed out or have any context for them outside of wiki

    Arguably beating prime Eddie twice shits on anything Chael has ever done

    Wow way to downplay your fellow Sherbros. I’d imagine a lot of us are quite successful. Life has been quite good to me personally.

    This, totally. And pulling off the double feat vs. Benson, including that KO'ing in the re-match when Benson was clearly out for blood.

    Uhh.... Potentially. I think he is going to do better than most in his UFC run but so far his career isn't as good as Chaels.

    Benson was way past his prime by the time he fought Chandler. Beating Eddie Alveraz shits on beating Okamin or Nate Marquardt? About the same if you ask me.
