Makhachev named the favorite to fight McGregor and Chandler

UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev has weighed in on the chances of former two-division titleholder Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler in their upcoming bout.

The Irishman and the American will fight in the main event of UFC 303, scheduled for June 29 in Las Vegas, USA.

"Conor can knock Chandler out in the first round, but if the fight goes to the second or third round, I think Michael will win. Chandler has stamina issues, but I think he can beat Conor. I'm just amazed at how Chandler fights so dumb sometimes! The guy has good wrestling, heavy punching, he just needs to fight with his head," Makhachev said on the Weighing In podcast.
