Initially, when McGregor vs Chandler odds were released in 2022, Chandler had a 60.7% chance of defeating the former two-time UFC champion. The latest shift in odds is likely due to the fight happening at 170 pounds – a weight class that could benefit “The Notorious” one more potentially.

For McGregor, who’s still recovering from a leg injury he sustained in his last fight against Poirier. Check out our list of UFC betting apps for odds on this bout.

“Conor McGregor, you’ve got to come back and fight somebody. I am the most entertaining lightweight on the planet. But I want to up the stakes, Conor. I want you at your biggest, I want you at your baddest and I want you at your best. You and me at 170 this summer, this fall, this winter. Holler at your boy!” (via Bleacher Report).

Betting on McGregor vs Chandler

Micheal Chandler has been one of the most exciting signings in recent UFC history. Every single time he steps into the octagon he brings electricity and puts on a spectacle. He may not win every fight, but he’s certainly a top-3 fighter in the lightweight division.

The only other fighter can currently top that and it’s still Conor McGregor, the former “champ champ” who draws record-breaking PPV sales every time he fights. While he’s approaching the twilight of his career, I can see a scenario where we have 2-3 more UFC fights from Conor and he’ll get back in the win column again.

Much anticipation has been around who McGregor’s dance partner will be when he returns. Just about everyone from Kamaru Usman, where McGregor is a +450 underdog to face the “Nigerian Nightmare” to a potential rematch against Jose Aldo.

This most recent call out from Chandler has an air of freshness, similar to the McGregor vs Mendes bout. At this point of his career Chandler has the star power for the UFC to make this fight happen, and at 170 puts the stakes even higher for the winner to get a potential title shot against Usman.

Given Chandler’s explosiveness, it’s fair to place him as the betting favorite over a declining McGregor. That being said, I can also see a situation where McGregor wins early by KO.

Yet, the odds that Chandler fights McGregor next are slim. The more realistic next opponents for chandler are Nate Diaz of Dustin Poirier, which would set up the winner to face Conor McGregor once he’s back in action.
