This was a week ago.(time-stamped) Chandler initially calls out Tony on two weeks notice for UFC 254. Tony said he's willing but wants to be paid more before he accepts. Tony:Ok, fight me in Dec Mike Chandler: there's no way I'd fight you in 3 and half weeks. That's silly 4 weeks ago: Chandler willing to fight Gaethje before the end of the year, 2020: Chandler gave his take on the Lightweight while talking with The Schmo, “There’s a lot of different options right now,” Chandler said (transcription via MMAFighting). “I think with the way the landscape looked - you had Gaethje and Khabib with Khabib as the lightweight champion after tonight - I was thinking Tony Ferguson. But now you’ve got Jon Anik and Justin Gaethje talking after the fight. Gaethje is a gamer. Justin Gaethje is one of the greatest competitors that we will ever get to see grace the octagon . . . (and) he said he’s ready in six to eight weeks, he’s ready to fight again. He didn’t take that much damage in this fight, which is great. I’m ready in six to eight weeks, he’s ready in six to eight weeks, there’s a Tony Ferguson fight, there is The Ultimate Fighter coming up, I know that’s gonna be a big debut for ESPN. Culminating in a lightweight title shot seems like nonstop action for ESPN so I would love to be a part of that as well. So we’ll see what happens.” https://www.mmamania.com/2020/10/27...er-justin-gaethje-ufc-debut-espn-fight-island Chandler on UFC 254: “I’m introducing all the UFC fans to who Michael Chandler is,” Chandler said. “I’ve never pulled out of a fight. I’ve never said no to a fight. I’ve never missed weight. I’m the perfect guy, especially in 2020, the year of all kinds of craziness. Have a backup fighter for the biggest lightweight fight possibly of the year, for sure.” https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/10/ufc-254-michael-chandler-wont-be-satisfied-until-he-fights I'm not saying Chandler is foolish for asking for a full camp, but its silly how its wishy washy, painting himself as ready to go, but when someone calls him out, he's not ready to go or he hides the fact he was never offered the fight or he's on a timeline, even though he's been throwing his name in there..He wants everything on his terms. Stop sending the fans mixed signals. Just shut the hell up, let the ufc handle it and when the fight is made, start promoting the fight.
