I dunno mate 🤷‍♂️maybe for chandler if he can’t get a quick route to the title at 170. He’s big atm tho that’s for sure @ogaddmma will have a good take on it…

I think they'll give him Chandler at 170. I agree he looks huge for 155 and it's all in how he's built now, you'd think he'd be cutting muscle to make 155. I don't know, I'm not a nutritionist but I agree, I think he's been doing what he can to keep fit given his leg and that's probably a lot of upper body stuff.

Assuming the Nate fight never happens, which is look more and more likely now, Chandler is the one. A very winnable fight for him given Chandler's tendency to look for entertaining battles over smart fights. If he tries to fight Conor on the feet I can fully see him getting blasted by something. Be interesting to see how Chandler's chin looks at 170, he's a huge lightweight and it could be a little inconsistent based on how the cut goes. Either way, that's the fight to make and the weight I think they'll make it at

That’s really interesting actually. On another note did you see Conor whipping in those kick on his IG on that heavy bag? Yikes they are painful enough without that bone to think about.. I’d love to see Chandler at 170, was he 155 throughout his Bellator career?

Yeah he was, but Chandler specifically asked for the Conor fight at 170 if he doesn't get the title fight. I was pretty impressed by Conor's kicks, he's clearly testing the power and if he's able to slam the bag without injuring himself then I'd think the road to recovery isn't looking too much longer. Dana said he reckons Conor will return at the end of the year, or beginning of next year

Yeah amazing recovery really if you look at similar injuries like Chris Weidman's. I didn't see that Chandler had requested it at 170, amazing - what a match up that would be. I really hope they sort it.

That's a really good point actually. I wonder how that works.

I’m just saying he’s way too big as well! He’s said he’s walking around about 190 right now, no way he’d cut that much!

Really? 190? Where did you get that from?

Conor does look huge on his IG posts recently... 😂 All that good food. If I had my own personal chef, I am not joking i'd be a right fat bastard, he'd quit I'd be working him that hard 😂

I say 190 going off of an interview I had seen a few weeks ago but no doubt We’d all be eating good too on the Lambo yacht with some proper 12 😂

Google says he’s 33, I thought he was older! But seriously, dude looked like a skeleton at 145!

I like that fight too! And I think it’s more likely to happen since Chandler said he would do it at 170.
