    I came across Chandler responding to some MMA fan account on twitter. He’s made a few comments on social media that makes it seem like he wants to test himself in the UFC while he still has some left in the tank. He says he believes he’s the best striker he’s ever been. Is Hooker vs Chandler good matchmaking if Chandler were to sign? Dan was calling for Tony, but I’m thinking Tony vs Poirier is next. I suppose Chandler would be a pretty high profile fight for him. More so than Do Bronx. It’s an interesting fight but I would pick Hooker via size advantage and durability. Could be a fun fight though
    Possible 155 matchmaking for the near future:

    Khabib vs Gaethje
    Tony vs Poirier
    Hooker vs Chandler (if he signs)
    Do Bronx vs RDA for his return to LW.
    Felder vs Diego F
    Dober vs Islam

    Mikey Chandler would be the CHAMP if he came over to the UFC.

    He's the ultimate alpha dog

    Woof woof

    His biggest accomplishment is the back-to-back win over Will Brooks. Beating the corpse of Bendo doesn't count for anything. Although the win over Eddie Alverez back in 2011 was good even though he lost the rematch.

    He'll do a little better than Will Brooks if he comes to the UFC.

    Hooker would likely whoop his ass from pillar to post

    Chandler is the perfect example of a big fish in a small pond.

    In the UFC he would be a small fish in a big pond

    Bellator 155 physiques are looking like UFC 1

    I hope Chandler does go to UFC I don't want to see him rematch anyone else in Bellator its lame at this point.


    Hooker could be a good first fight.

    Back to back wins over Will Brooks ?

    Brooks is the one that beat him back to back and even finished Chandler in the rematch.

    It took Barboza's best kicks over the course of 3 rounds to stop him. He's a tough mofo.

    Thats a weird but fun matchup. Chandlers chin has seen better days though. Hooker by intercepting knee.

    Chandler vs Islam is the fight to make.

    Michael Chandler is never going to come to the UFC because he doesn't want USADA testing. Simple as that

    O snaps read his wiki wrong, so he lost twice to most overhyped bellator prospect that came into the UFC.
