    First Chandler ducked Islam and now he has a chance to fight RDA due to Islam's injury. But will Chandler take the fight to help keep the main event happen or will he continue to duck like before?

    Meanwhile Nasrat Haqparast replied to RDA saying he's in Vegas and texted negative for Corona to throw his name in the hat

    You really think Chandler is taking anything less than a top PPV card slot?

    Chandler has gotten way better offers than old RDA. Dunno why he'd take a random short notice fight like this.

    He should, he got beat by fatherweight 2 fights ago.

    But I'm guessing he will duck again.

    No but Islam would definitely duck Chandler like he just did with RDA

    I mean I'd take it for sure. Jus with all the UFC pump and having him as a sub for Khabib/Justin bout. Seems like they want more bang for their buck.

    Dunno. Most LW's aren't booked. Almost no ranked FW is booked atm either. Funny how MMA works huh.

    I wonder if Dariush or Dober can take the fight. Both of their opponents had to pull out recently so they've been training.

    Yea I think he should have "work the way up" fights but that's now how the UFC came across with using him.

    As I mentioned - would gladly take it but I don't see it.

    RDA is the easiest fight Islam will get. If he ducked him he might as well retire with Khabib.

    Actually makes a ton of sense for a first UFC fight for Chandler. Would be very similar to Askren fighting Lawler in his UFC debut. Older former champ with a known name who is past his prime but still a tough test and decent measuring stick. And the added bonus of being a main event for this one. Come on Mike.

    He's not taking the fight and it's not a duck imo

    Pretty sure he stopped training right before Khabib/Justin. He is a few weeks past his peak. Also, he didn’t duck anyone... he was being saved for alternate of main event. But why let the truth get in the way of a good story?
