Khabib says UFC new boy Michael Chandler is ‘number one contender’ – if he beats teammate Islam Makhachev

‘Here’s your chance to jump on the island!’: Islam Makhachev CALLS OUT UFC newcomer Michael Chandler as Dos Anjos bows out

If Sonnen and Khabib are on the same page here, it remains to be seen if the same could be said of the UFC’s perspective on this. The recently-arranged January fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier has obvious world title implications, while Tony Ferguson remains hovering near the top of the division despite suffering his first loss in eight years to Justin Gaethje earlier this year.

So with a logjam forming at the top of the lightweight frame, it seems certain that some fighters are going to have to wait longer than they would have liked for a world title shot – but it is no doubt a benefit to Islam Makhachev, and indeed Michael Chandler by proxy, that they have the champion lobbying their cause.
