New belt at stake in McGregor vs. Chandler? “Wouldn’t be surprised”

"It'll be incredible when we have all the information!"

Michael Chandler believes the UFC is planning to introduce a new belt for his fight with Conor McGregor at UFC 303. “The Notorious’ comeback has finally been booked. On 30 June, McGregor will make his much-anticipated comeback after a two-year hiatus.

The last time McGregor fought, he broke his leg at the end of the first round of a gruelling trilogy against Dustin Poirier. Despite the brutal defeat and the fact that he is now 35 years old, the superstar has no plans to hang up his gloves. McGregor himself says he wants to fight more this year and stay as active as possible in the future.

We can only wait and see whether McGregor will be able to fight as often as he wants, but either way, he’s still got plenty of fight left in him! However, with UFC gold on the line, the former two-time champion might just be motivated! There are rumours that the UFC is set to introduce a new super-lightweight division with a weight limit of 165lbs. If true, it would be the perfect opportunity for the UFC to give McGregor the chance to win a third belt!


In a recent interview, Conor McGregor made light of Michael Chandler’s upcoming fight ahead of UFC 303. McGregor, who is set to make his comeback this summer, said, “I’m a Terminator now.”
When asked about the rumours surrounding the super lightweight belt, Chandler told TheMacLife, “That was one of the rumours.”
While the belt may not have materialised, McGregor’s comeback is set to be a blockbuster event!

– Even me, in my position, I wouldn’t be surprised if the fight contract came and it said it was for the (super lightweight) belt. Anything could happen! The UFC has to keep a lot of things secret. Even from us, right?

– They want to wait with a lot of information. We know the date. I knew what the weight class was going to be and they sent it. It was supposed to be for a belt, but we’ll see if we can’t come up with one!
