    The UFC should just make him a backup again for Conor and Dustin. This guy is just too damn entitled for someone who hasn't proven he even belongs in the ufc's top 10. He's been talking non-stop since he came to the ufc and refuses fights left and right. Chandler doesnt even deserve this fight; he should be thanking Tony and taking this opportunity but instead this diva is acting like a duck.

    Man, such a great fucking fight.
    Easy co-main for the Conor vs. Dustin card.
    Come on Chandler.

    Fuck it, do Ferg vs. Hooker or Do Bronx and let Chandler fight someone lower ranked.

    So, islam calls him out, he says no.
    RDA (former champ) calls him out, he says no
    Tony (former interim champ #3 LW) calls him out, he again says no.

    If he quacks like a duck...

    He called out gaethje in October and said he's ready to go in 6-8 weeks. Chandler is a clown. Lol

    Also called on Tony on two weeks notice for 254

    Yup, no surprise Chandler turned that down. Tony/Chandler as the co-main for UFC 257 does not sound bad at all though, but I think Tony really wants this fight to be a main event.

    Damn u people are pretty obtuse, it's called leverage and in his same position you'd think about your options while they were existant and available to you as well... Common sense. Let the guy live.

    This is literally what Chandler said, that he's ready to fight in 2020 against gaethje

    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.”

    Do Tony vs Oliviera then for ufc 256 & offer Chandler someone like Dober or Dariush. 256 needs a big fight.

    I read it differently: he's not trying to pick and choose who he fights but when he fights. Ferguson will most likely be the same person in January.

    Chandler shouldn't be matched up with top 5 yet anyway. Give him Islam 6 months from now.
