    I’m sure they do, I’ve just never gotten the impression that Chandler was serious about the UFC. He could’ve signed numerous times, and has to be on the downhill portion of his career. Whether it’s USADA issues like some say, or he truly gets a better deal in Bellator, he’s been content to re-sign with them again and again. I’d really like to see him in the UFC, so I’ll happily eat crow if he signs :)

    I agree he’s played this game before and always went back to Bellator. But I actually don’t think Bellator wants him that bad and I think the ufc wants the new blood. They saw what Askren did and I bet a newly signed Chandler vs Ferguson sells better to the casuals than Poirier does

    Seems like a total waste of a legit contender. Shame that the Poirer fight fell through

    Lmao like Chandler won’t demand big money to join the UFC. Btw, Tony would maul Chandler in the later rounds.

    I think Tony would dominate this fight. Dustin vs Tony is more competitive but I would watch this fight also

    At this point, it's tough titties for Dustin. Shame he wasn't happy with the figure but he had his chance. Too many top guys sitting out now for certain opponents or pay days.....

    Charles Oliviera sitting there twiddling his thumbs being offered other fighters nowhere near a TS

    Dumb take. He beats McGregor easily because he'll gas out within 7 minutes and he stands the best chance vs Khabib because of his ground game, his ability in scrambles and his obscene durability and stamina.

    Easy win for Tony imo.
    Chandler is good, but very over-hyped on here.

    Overestimating his worth/fame imo but it could work out

    Ben was funny with the promos and had Peele endearing his dad like persona. From what I've seen of Chandler he's a pretty boring guy at least in interviews. Dustin got his fame off a khabib loss.

    I'm still excited to see the fight but I don't think I'll sell any diff

    How long would Chandler have to be in the USADA testing pool before he can fight in the UFC?

    That would be a very interesting match up. Chandler definitely has a tough style for many.
