One of the most exciting free agent signings in recent years was Bellator lightweight Michael Chandler to the UFC. He is a former three time champion in the Bellator organization and at 34 years of age he definitely still has time for a solid title run and the UFC. Chandler is on standby for Saturday’s UFC 254 to step in if either lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov or interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje has to pull out. We got a little preview of what that might be like from some photos he shared on Instagram.
Seeing him in the UFC Octagon is surreal. Unfortunately though he may be happy to be there not everyone is. Khabib was having none of his presence there and made it known to anyone who would listen.
Still, it didn’t deter him from having a little fun. Watching Michael Chandler work out is like watching Tony Ferguson‘s little brother.
