A fight between Conor McGregor" target="_blank" rel="noopener">McGregor and Michael Chandler is the biggest fight in all of MMA, says "Iron" Mike, who tells TMZ Sports that's the fight the people want!!"If Conor comes back soon, I think Conor and I could make some fireworks.

I think it's the biggest fight we're going to make in mixed martial arts right now, and I try to say that as humble as I can," Chandler told Babcock when he joined the "TMZ Sports" TV show the 36-year-old UFC lightweight is coming off a devastating knockout of Tony Ferguson, courtesy of a front kick at UFC 274.

Conor hasn't fought since July 2021, when he suffered a horrific leg injury during the trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier. Likely, McGregor won't fight until the first half of 2023 so Mike won't bait McGregor, who sustained a serious injury.

"He snapped his leg. It was not a small injury; it required surgery, possibly multiple surgeries, and a titanium rod," Michael explains. Later, he said, “I don’t want to throw stones at the guy.
