The easiest game to play after UFC 257 seems to be Dustin Poirier and Michael Chandler, both of whom emerged from Saturday’s pay-per-view game and won An impressive victory.
But Prijel doesn’t believe they belong to the same category, and he is unwilling to compete with the former Belat champion after blocking Connor McGregor in the pay-per-view title.
“I can guarantee that I will not fight Michael Chandler.” Porill told reporters at a press conference after the UFC 257 fight, including MMA fighting. “They can do whatever they want for the department. I don̵
UFC 257 was originally constructed by UFC President Dana White as an audition for the top lightweight car. Poirier competed with McGregor and Chandler with Dan Hooker to impress the current UFC light champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Chandler certainly played his role. In the first round, Hook stopped Hook with an amazing performance. But as Nurmagmedov looked increasingly unlikely to revoke a decision to withdraw from the sport, Polyer believed he should be considered a champion.
Of course, Poirier didn’t actually grab the seat belt. He said, but he should fight for this soon. If UFC does things the way he thinks it should be done, then the person who stands opposite him next will be the one who gets the chance.
He said: “I have been working.” “That’s why I sit here and feel that I can talk about it, because I have been in the department and UFC for a long time, and have been working with the best of the best. Fight.
“Disrespect [Chandler]He looks like a good husband and a good father. He speaks very well, is respected, and behaves very well. This is not a knock on his door. This is just my feeling about the department and sports. I lost to Habib, I came out to fight for you in the “Best Battle of the Year”, and then I competed against the top five opponents. Then I went in, Khabib didn’t want to come back, and I knocked out one of the biggest fights you can get. I also knocked this guy down.
“Habib reiterated that he doesn’t want to fight anymore-dude, I am the champion. I will not fight, as I said, respect Chandler, this is a new UFC player, he just defeated a losing player. Guy, and this loss is what I just defeated. It’s not exciting for me.”
In the past June, Prijel defeated Hook and decided to rebound after losing to Nurmagomedov in the Champions League. The more attractive candidate is Charles Oliveira, who has won the past eight games and recently surpassed former interim champion Tony Ferguson.
“I think he has more [of a case for the title shot]”, Poirier said. “I have watched this guy in the UFC for 10 years. These are two different weight classes. He fights for the best over and over again. Moreover, he was knocked down and stood up, and proved what MMA and perseverance are. I respect. It’s not that I don’t respect Michael Chandler. I just think he has more work to do than beat the one I just beat. “
Oliveira is one of the two names competing for the title. The other is Justin Gaethje, who, like Poirier, tries to unify the belt. However, before that, Gaethje was stopped by “Diamond” in the cruel round.
When asked whether Oliveira or Gaethje had higher requirements for the title, Prijer chose Brazil.
“It’s just because he never got a chance again,” Polier said. “Gaethje came here just like me and was beaten. It was not Gaethje who knocked on Gaethje, but he lost. I think it might be Oliviera, or let them see who gets it war.
After some rest and relaxation, Poirier will finally see what the UFC has prepared for him. He defeated the UFC’s biggest box office superstar, McGregor, who was the champion of the two divisions, and made great efforts for himself. His next battle must be one where he can prove that he is a conservative veteran.
