    I think Conrat wants that fight because he loves to fight midgets with short legs.

    Conor losing to Chandler would be hilarious.

    Chandler would be dangerous and not bring much too the table promotion wise .....makes no sense for ufc or Conor

    Chandler is only an inch shorter than Conor and jacked out of his mind on roids.

    Too much risk, no reward. Chandler is basically a bigger Chad Mendes, so I don't see it being a walk in the park exactly.

    Because
    a) Conor doesn't fight
    b) if he does, it's some bullshit title-shot or some circus fight

    So in other words: Conor doesn't fight LW contenders.

    And the last thing Conor wants is to fight a wrestler.

    They need Conor to stay away from wrestlers as much as possible on his road to the title. Dustin, Diego, then title shot.

    Chandler has done nothing to warrant this fight. Turning his nose up to fights won’t get him closer to it either.

    UFC is in the money making business

    that fight currently would not make alot of money

    maybe if Chandler would have stepped in and beat Khabib

    All these champs from other promotions coming over and getting good contracts have and should have tough, but winnable opponents right away.

    Conor is too big of a star to have Chandler potentially ground him for a UD. And Conor's style, the quickly dispatching on the feet, would make Chandler look terrible. No one wants to watch him after that. There is no good outcome in that fight.

    You give Chandler someone like Poirier, Tony or Gaethje. A top guy, kinda add Chandler as a top guy into that group to make it bigger, make the division better. If he beats one of those without too much controversy he's ready for a title shot.

    This way they can justify paying him well. Need to get something out of the buck they're investing in him. Can't match him up with a bum, either. That doesn't show if he's ready. The match-up has to be right.

    Because he his Mendes with way more power and gas tank. They know Conor's next incoming loss will result in coke bender arrest and harm to some innocent person minding their own business.
