Jackson backed McGregor after withdrawing from the fight against Chandler

Former UFC bantamweight champion Quinton Jackson has backed the promotion's former two-division champion Conor McGregor, who pulled out of his bout against Michael Chandler due to health issues.

"Conor McGregor is a fucking millionaire. What the hell are you doing? What the hell are you doing instead of fighting? You only have to do it for love, and one day, if you don't feel it, then send it. He doesn't need it. I can't blame him. If I was that rich and I had any pain in my body, hell, I'd give up the fight too," Jackson said on The MMA Hour show.

Recall that the fight between McGregor and Chandler was supposed to be the main event of the UFC 303 tournament, which will take place on June 29 in Las Vegas, USA.
