Former Bellator Middleweight Champion Alexander Shlemenko thinks Michael Chandler unconditional favorite of the upcoming match with Tony Ferguson, which will be held on the night of May 8 at UFC 274 in Phoenix.

“I don’t really give Ferguson a chance against Chandler, to be honest. Although Chandler is such a guy... It was with Oliveira: well, damn it, you already have a fight in your pocket! Why was it so risky? But still, I don’t believe that Ferguson has even the slightest chance.

Maybe now there are defenders of Ferguson. They will say: “He breathes well, he beats with his elbows there.” I don't know... Moreover, they have a three-round fight there, right? Not even a five-round one. Therefore, no chance for Ferguson. He is a great guy - he never refuses difficult challenges. And this will be another serious challenge for him. But Chandler, in principle, fought with such fighters in a short time. He fell into a knockout, and still continues to cut, ”said Shlemenko.
