Conor McGregor’s TUF Antics Draw Criticism from Michael Chandler. Dan ‘The Outlaw’ Hardy Eyes MMA Comeback. Israel Adesanya Calls Out Dricus Du Plessis.
In the latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter season 31, Conor McGregor and his team celebrated their first win, but not without controversy. Michael Chandler, a member of Team Chandler, took issue with McGregor’s post-fight antics and expressed his dissatisfaction on his TUF Reaction Show on YouTube.
Chandler criticized McGregor’s choice of words directed at his team, stating, ‘Rightfully so Conor’s pumped up but this is one of the things [he said], ‘closed guard after two rounds isn’t a fight’, there was a lot of unfinished fights so basically it was a stab at us for not fighting hard enough.’ He also pointed out that some of his teammates had been cut from the UFC, so McGregor’s comments hit close to home.
Dan ‘The Outlaw’ Hardy Eyes MMA Comeback
Dan ‘The Outlaw’ Hardy, a former UFC welterweight title challenger, is considering a comeback to the sport. Hardy’s MMA career was cut short in 2013 due to a heart condition, but he recently discovered that it is not a serious concern for fighting. Now working as the Head of Fighter Operations for PFL Europe, Hardy expressed his desire to compete again on The DAZN MMA Show.
Although Hardy did not mention any names, he hinted that someone has shown interest in him. He said, ‘I hear that somebody has been calling my name to the PFL. So yeah, certainly, I got that little tingle up my spine and that drive to start training again.’ Hardy’s return to the octagon would certainly be an exciting prospect for fans.
Israel Adesanya Calls Out Dricus Du Plessis
A highly anticipated grudge match between Israel Adesanya and Dricus Du Plessis will not take place as scheduled. Despite becoming the number one contender in the middleweight division, Du Plessis will not be able to compete on the desired date. Adesanya expressed his frustration with the situation in a video posted on Twitter.
Adesanya called Du Plessis out for not taking the fight, stating, ‘Dricus ‘Du Pssy’, you fcking b*tch. ‘All he had to do was put on some gloves, I was ready to go again,’ no you weren’t.’ He criticized Du Plessis for claiming to be injured and compared his own experience of fighting through adversity. Adesanya made it clear that he is willing to fight anyone, anywhere, anytime.
