    Depends in his self belief I guess, if he thinks he can come and make a run at the belt then he should come over, if he doesn't he should stay where he is.

    There is something to be said for a competitor testing himself against the best in the world.

    He’s better off in bellator. The UFC won’t pay a premium for him. They’re doing just fine with the sweatshop minor leagues. (DWTNCS) He can’t be making more than 100k per fight and then throw in sponsorship money. I can’t see the ufc paying him substantially more.

    He's 33, 34 next month. It's now or never for the UFC.

    He needs to fight the Freire brothers, Brent Primus, Eddie Alvarez,David Rickles and will Brooks a few more times first before he is ready for teh UFC!

    Too bad he didn't sign with UFC last time he was up for FA, but I understand the money wasn't there.

    Prime Chandler vs Prime Gaethje would've been a war, but unfortunately I think Chandler has lost a step or two recently.

    Much like Eddie Alvarez (and Kid Yamamoto, and Gomi, and plenty of other great fighters) it would be great to see, but definitely past their prime.

    I would expect more from Chandler than from Eddie, tbh.
    But I doubt that he is on Dana´s list. He is a wrestler and Dana has cut wrestlers with winning records....

    For the UFC but not for himself or HIS brand. He beat Robbie in a controversial sub after getting his ass beat. 3 money fights but know we all know how Ben would of done in the UFC at any point of his career.

    I don't get how a controversial stoppage win gets counted as a LOSS?

    That's right.
    We Want to see it
    We are a little scared of the outcome
    Again, the match up can help the quality of the show !

    Askren generated interest until he got laid out in 3 seconds by Masvidal. The Maia fight was really just so he wouldn't get concussed again, but a lot of the interest was gone.

    If Chandler gets thrown to the wolves as Askren was and flops, the interest will fade quickly. But I like Chandler and I hope he does better than Askren did. But LW is a division that's not exactly easy right now, so I hope they don't give him a top 5 right away

    Your fight analysis is utter garbage and reeks of ignorant casual.
