The biggest news in the MMA world this summer is the signing of Michael Chandler with UFC. Chandler is a three-time former Bellator lightweight champion and is widely regarded as the last piece of the puzzle missing from the UFC lightweight.
After coming to the UFC, Chandler was immediately entrusted with a heavy responsibility. He will be the alternate player for the UFC 254 in the lightweight championship of Khabib Numangomodov VS Justin Gage, in case there are any of them. Anyone who is unexpectedly unable to compete. But this is only UFC's backup plan for UFC254. Strictly speaking, Chandler's UFC debut opponent is still not finalized.
Although Chandler has long been famous, he is still a newcomer to the UFC. He now needs to get a foothold in the octagonal cage by defeating a gold-rich opponent. For Chandler, who is 34 years old this year, if he wants to achieve something in the UFC, obviously there is not much time to waste. Although he is a candidate for UFC254, it is said that UFC is preparing to arrange a certain opponent for him, so that even if he did not play as a candidate that night, he can have a game of his own in UFC254.
Dan Hawker, who is currently ranked No. 4 in the UFC lightweight class, sees this opportunity. He was unanimously defeated in the duel with Dustin Poirier in June this year, but the super quality of that game helped him stay in the competition for the championship challenge. In a recent interview, Hawker expressed that he is very willing to be Chandler's first opponent in the octagonal cage, and he is ready to play in a short-term preparation.
目前在UFC轻量化类中排名第四的Dan Hawker看到了这个机会。他在今年6月与达斯汀·普里耶尔（Dustin Poirier）的决斗中被一致击败，但那场比赛的出色品质帮助他留在了争夺冠军挑战赛的比赛中。在最近的一次采访中，霍克表示，他非常愿意成为钱德勒在八角形笼子中的第一个对手，并且他已经准备好进行短期准备。
"It's hard to know how much effort the UFC is willing to put in to promote a player who has just come from another fighting organization, but judging from the fact that he immediately became a candidate for the championship, it is obvious that the UFC has done a lot on him. A bet. Therefore, I am willing to be the one who greets this guy in the octagonal cage, and I will beat him back to the B league."
"Of course I am willing to take this game. If Sean Selby (the UFC organizer) calls me now, I will accept it immediately, no matter when and where."
Hawker’s head coach Eugene Balmain had previously stated that due to the severe blow to the head in the previous match against Poirier, Hawker may have difficulty catching up with UFC254 at the end of October, even The opponent is Tony Ferguson. However, Hawker himself said a few days ago that he is ready to return to the arena, and through a victory to wash away the haze of the previous loss to Poirier, even if the opponent is not Chandler.
"I will definitely fight again before the end of this year. This is something I have decided. I have gone through a very good recovery period, and now I have returned to the boxing gym, training very hard, and ready to debut. So in November or December, my schedule is very open and we will finalize a great game."
"The number one opponent in my mind is of course Ferguson. This is the game I want most, because everything this guy has done before is so great, I am very willing to compete with him. Chandler is mine The second choice, UFC made him a candidate for the championship when he just signed, which shows that UFC values him very much, so I defeated such an opponent. The third person is Charles Oliveira, I heard that he posted a video calling me Zhen, but unfortunately I don’t understand Portuguese. I hope he can tell me face to face so that we can play a game. Ferguson, Chandler, Oliveira, they Any one of them is an opponent I am interested in, so let's see who can get this opportunity first."
