“Dustin Poirier, your time is coming and Khabib – if you ever do see fit to grace us with your presence in the UFC octagon in your quest for 30-0, you have to beat somebody," he asserted.

“So beat me, if you can! God bless, see you at the top... I promise you I can beat Khabib and I told him," Chandler continued. "He will become 29 and Chandler.”

The 34-year old Missouri-native came into the UFC 257 co-main event as a betting underdog and proved his doubters wrong in a very quick fashion.
