“That fight with Conor, I’m serious about it,” Chandler said (h/t MMA Junkie). “You’re going to be hard-pressed to find somebody who doesn’t think I’m one of the most exciting guys on the planet now. I think I’ve proven that numerous times now. Conor needs a big fight to put butts in seats, to sell pay-per-views, and a fight at 170 would be a lot better than 155. When Conor comes back and he's healthy, I'll be there."
