Michael Chandler teases that bout with Justin Gaethje is now signed and official
Just days ago, Michael Chandler said on Twitter that he will not be fighting at UFC 268 in November against Justin Gaethje because of New York's indoor event vaccination requirements.
In New York, it is compulsory that to attend an indoor event you must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Chandler stated, that despite the vaccine being FDA approved he will not take it yet which left his bout against Gaethje in major doubt.
It now seems that the fight is back on after Chandler posted the following Tweet:
Signed, sealed, delivered. November 6 we party!— Michael Chandler (@MikeChandlerMMA) August 25, 2021
This means that Chandler has either changed his mind about the vaccine which is unlikely or the venue of UFC 268 will be changing.
