"michael chandler" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood

"Me now. First-class father michael chandler. Welcome to first-class fatherhood. Thank you for having me. And i appreciate the opportunity all right. Let's start right here. How many kids you have how old i have one son and he is four years old. He turned four in january. So he's almost four and a half involved in any sports activities yet. i do. Yeah so he's he is in flag football and he is in t-ball and we've got a couple of different. He gets to school this week and we got him involved in a summer camp. Every single week associated with our our school which is right down the street and keep busy. Keep him around other kids socialize and having a good time running all over the place just like oh boy should be doing. Yeah very cool. I love that. Michael if you could just take a minute here to hit my listeners. A little bit about your background. What do yes. I mean i. I've i've been wrestling. And then now i fight for a living For about the last twenty years. I wrestled in high school wrestling. College was an all american at the university of missouri in two thousand nine. Then i transitioned in to mixed martial arts right away in two thousand nine Fought outside the ufc for a very long time won a couple world titles and bella tour and came over to the ufc just fought for the world title in the ufc. Lightweights on top five lightweight right now and Chasing the gold and also trying to be a better human being at all times. Yeah it's inspiring to watch you over your career here. Michael been crushing it. In the octagon outside the octagon and along this journey about. How old were you when you first became a dad and had to becoming a father kind of change your perspective on life so i was right about thirty thirty one when i became a father We adopted our son actually so he was He was already about ten months old way him. So we got you know. Skip those first ten months of Of his life which was really just the baby stage and whatnot so we So kinda got thrusted into hood pretty quick even though it. Was you know for any of the listeners who have gone through the adoption process. Which is Its grueling at times. Because it's a long process a lot of A lot of paperwork a lot of background checks. Physical health background checks. Fbi criminal background checks. Financial background checks physicals All of those different things and make sure you are Fit to be parents of the daca child so It took about a year to get the process going and then at at one forty pm on a certain day we got an email saying we were down with our paper book paperwork and eligible to adopt them at one forty six pm. Six minutes later we got an email. That said congratulations. You're eligible by the way there. This this down in texas that fits your preferences perfectly and within forty eight hours of that phone call down in texas. We were waiting at a hotel room. waiting to receive and and take custody of are the greatest blessing on the entire planet so Although it was a long process of you know getting all the prerequisites done for adoption of six minute match was very quick so It was used blessing. In god's time and it was absolutely perfect of us use the greatest joy of our lives. Yeah very well say. Got quite a few dads out here. Who have adopted. I understand the process can be long and painstaking but definitely worth it and thank god. It is as extensive as it is so that the kids can find homes. I think no greater formula from apparent to adopt a child and give it. Give that love to somebody. That's not their own and make them their own saw props to you for you. Do you guys planning on having any more kids or adopting any more kids. You guys one done here. We are we. We've played around with the idea. I think i think we we were both in in the position where we thought man. We're like we're so happy so content with with just our son have like. I don't need love any more children. You know like we we. We didn't necessarily want to have a a huge family. I think. I think maybe one more might be on the horizon. You know Still kicking around the idea of my wife and extremely busy and we just love loving on our son. We love what he's involved in and haven't thought too much crazy forward thinking into the future but it been huge joy and you know as you know probably talk about a lot on the on this podcast. It's becoming a parent is it's the most important thing that you can do as a human being You know fighter world champion and businessmen and even husband is those are all great things but the being Being a father in leading child. Especially for me. I have the joy of having a son and i i. I want to turn them into a a wonderful young man a high functioning individual. Who's gonna yeoman is going to grow up and be a leader of his generation and Really excited about that and also excited about maybe expanding family. So we'll see. Yeah very cool. And i talk about on the show a lot. Michael is the fatherless crisis we have going on we have so many kids are growing up without a father or father figure in their life and it's having a devastating result on our society so It it's awesome to see you know people that do adopting give kids an opportunity to have a father grow up with a father figure so it's cool that what would you touch down a little bit there. But what would you say are the top values that you're hoping to it. Still unhappy growing up. I think more than anything. Hard work and accountability. You know not not hard work. Because i'm a fighter and i'm a guy who's going to work hard and do all that but we're just d- Wiping the sweat off your brow and being able to get done with day of of of work not because of You know not because of building finances not because building treasures up here on earth but but but doing the most with the talents that you were given and finding his purpose and finding what that what that thing is that makes them tick what. What is the purpose. That is on his life. And and finding god's best for his life and i truly do believe that i speak over every single night that when he walks into a room people will take notice when he walks in a certain direction. People follow him when he speaks. People will listen. I wanna speak these things into that so that he is so confident and so Secure in himself Things that i didn't really get growing up i had. I did have a great family mother and a father both in the home. A great father But it wasn't spoken to me. That i can really take the world on an take. Take everything squeezed. Every ounce of joy and happiness and success in in accomplishment. Out of this life I want him to believe those things about himself. And then through osmosis through the people that he is around. I want him to be able to to rub off on to other people just by being around him I wanted to love Fiercely want him to be a leader. As i said in his generation..

"That have has the power and the speed that i have But if the fight goes to the ground. As well i am. i mean. i traveled. Gilbert burns her burns vagner. Rocha trent with some really high level be. Jj black belts I have fought some high level. Bj black belts guys. Who have over. Twenty submission wins in her career. Guys who guys who roll guys up quickly i have. I have a knack in six cents for not getting caught. Submissions submissions lottery guards short neck short arms short Limbs and just a confident strong power pressure base And that's kind of the wrestler way. So if i need to pick them up put them down or even if a crazy scramble happens and i tripped fall down. Get taken down off the cage. I'm getting the hang control. Backup worry going to get back to defeat and i'm gonna keep punishing second last question. Sometimes i'm just looking at your instagram. And i'm like this guy is such a freaking nature. It's the same kind of way that i that. I watched like the rocks instagram. How does this. How does this specimen exists. You do all these crazy things. The rock the rock. Dwayne johnson allows us once a week to see his incredible cheap meals. I don't know if you've seen these cheap meals before. But i watched those with great admiration. We don't what's the michael chandler cheat meal. does that even exist. You eat anything. That is not supremely healthy. There's gotta be something that you eat right. That's that's a little more relatable to people like me. Yeah you're number one. The rocks jeep males are on another level. I have no idea how adjusts like forty thousand calories and male or whatever at the morning. He's eating nine nine pounds of cinnamon buns and you're like what in the world all homemade by the way so bad. Honestly i don't know i just got i've gotten this. I've done this extra drive in motivation to to stay away from that stuff. Because i don't think we get old. I think we get lazy. We get busy. We start to get fat because we get lazy. We get busy and the more out of shape you get the harder it is to get back and the more your body slows down. But i'm not going to sit here and say i don't have pizza burger and fries but i think I think my favorite cheat meal is pizza for shore. I will definitely have some pizza after this fight but really man even just going out to eat getting a big old steak and vegetables. That is very similar to what i eat inside training camp at the fact that i do it out in fact that i could take my wife on on a date the fact that i might have an adult beverage as well. You know these are these are these are things that i enjoy when it comes to eating Because i like really good food really good tasting food but really still pretty nutritious food because i think i think this bodies last as long as it possibly can and i think be fighting to the ufc title. And i think when you see my performance at thirty five years old at ufc. Two sixty two. When i win the title. You're gonna say man that guy's thirty five year. Old body is a lot different than a lot of thirty five year old. You've seen and i think it's just a testament to be preserving it via great supplementation nutrition in the right workout plans. I question all goes well on saturday. You get the belt wrapped around your waist. The moment that every fighter dreams of everything. You've been through over the past decade. The highs and lows brent premise madison square garden eddie alvarez ripe pimple coming to the ufc doing what you all the highs and lows you get to the back. Who's the first person you call. Well i mean if there was nobody there i would call my wife's first but she she's she's going to be there The why my wife was the first one. I called after my winning abu dhabi. She was the first. She's always the first one. I call if she's not there Her love and support sacrifice and selflessness. she. I have been put my body through a living heck or last eight weeks being down in florida training in and making the requisite sacrifices as athlete to be successful on saturday night but she takes over the role as both parents. She's taking out the trash. She's taking care of our child. She really steps up. So i can live this dream and she works full-time. She is a doctor in in works fulltime. So she's she's just a phenomenal. human being. And she motivates me in ways that she has no idea she motivates me just even today We very quick phone all because she was at work. And i'm here training. I'm here in on fight week and it should be about me. But it's it's not because i have. I have the mentality that she is living her dream and she is suspending her calling. And i'm doing mine and she's doing it on her side. I'm doing on my side and we're gonna get to come together after win this belt. So she's always the first one i call. She's the first one i'm gonna hub. I one i'm gonna kiss. And gosh dang man is going to be really great. I look forward to it. Michael congrats on making it. This far on this moment. Good luck on saturday. Good luck in the last few days leading up to the fight and can't wait to see the fight on saturday night. Appreciate the time as always. Yes sir thank.

"This guy named charles lavar who's been in the afc. Since two thousand ten. He made his debut on a network that no longer exists versus. He's had his ups and downs missing way problems all kinds of stuff and now he has found himself and he's looked like a buzz size of late and so i'm just wondering from your perspective. What has impressed you most about what charles lavar has done on this winning streak and mean that that is the thing i i wouldn't be standing here today with without loving in in in seeing firsthand kind of that. Underdog story that the stick to it of nece. The high the lows the getting beat down. Porn yourself back so in that regard. You can't help but to just love. Charles olivera story honestly. I started fighting in two thousand nine. He's been signed with the usc. Since two thousand ten man he was just a young kid from brazil with a glimmer. As i hope that maybe someday when i get into the sport i could be a ufc champion. It has taken him a over a decade now to get this. Ufc title. shot so I i by no means Think that my road is any better or worse but it is really cool. It's a tale of two completely different stories. The guy who has cut his teeth worked extremely hard over the last over a decade inside the ufc to get the title shot. And the guy who's worked as his tail off head a bunch of highs and lows and dust himself off outside the ufc and then come into the sea now to get the title shot. So man i just think his evolution as a fighter his striking. he's the most dangerous guy in the world on the ground. Not only does he have. The most submission wins and you have see history. But the way in which the versatility in which he's able to finish fights on the ground in any given moment you are. You're kidding yourself. If you don't think you are an absolute danger at all times when charles olivera is within an arm's reach of you to be able to pick you up. Put you down in enroll you up into some kind of crazy submission so That's what excites me. That's what scares me. That's what keeps me up at night. And that's why i'm going to go out there on saturday night on my ps and qs with a best best foot forward and i believe put together a phenomenal performance in game plan to be able to stick by claim as the number one lightweight in the world. But i'd be lying if i didn't if i didn't say despite scares me a little bit in a in excites me. Couple things that you go just curious your tremendous wrestler your base his basis jujitsu. Both of you have turned into great strikers as well but often when the wrestler and the jitsu guy. You don't want the to guy off his back your strength would be to take him down but ops back to that often leads to a predominant striking matchup. Are you thinking that this fight will be contested mostly on the feet as a result of that i would like it to be you know i think man i think from the first time that that glove touches charles olivera wherever it is body shoulder head He's gonna realize that he's in there with a different guy Kevin lee is known for his hands but he doesn't not have close to the speed and power. That i have Tony ferguson kinda. Didn't really bring much to the table in the striking department. Two guys that he has fought over this. Eight five win streak. I don't think he's fought anybody in his entire career. That have has the power and the speed that i have But if the fight goes to the ground. As well i am. i mean. i traveled. Gilbert burns her burns vagner. Rocha trent with some really high level be. Jj black belts I have fought some high level. Bj black belts guys. Who have over. Twenty submission wins in her career. Guys who guys who roll guys up really quickly i have. I have a knack in a six cents for not getting caught and submissions lottery guards short neck short arms short Limbs and just a confident strong power pressure base And that's kind of the wrestler way.

"Moment. Have you ever felt prior to this moment. Like you reach the top or was the top always exclusive to the ufc atop was always exclusive to the ufc You know. I think you're lying to yourself if you if you don't think that that's that's true I can i know. I know this from experience. Been outside the you have c. Just a different experiences different animal. The roster's are More deep The depth the roster in lightweight every division is just Just much bigger here in the ufc. And that's there. There are certain athletes outside. You have see like. I always thought i was And i always took a lotta from. I told you. I think i could be could be told you i might be one of the top guys in the world but everybody say okay. Want us to go see to prove it. So that's what i'm doing. I knew i wouldn't be able to sleep at night If i didn't To sleep and take this. Take this jump to the ufc. But i've always known that i was one of the top guys in the world but until you prove it in the octagon in the ufc. It's kinda just lip service and it's really unfortunate because you're never going to be number one unless you're in the afc to that point. Have you noticed. A palpable difference. In the way in which people view you and treat you now that you're ufc fighter for only eight months. I mean you were the face a bell tour for a decade. I remember the dave and buster's commercials. I remember when they went to spike. And you're the guy that they were pushing however even just looking at like your small things like instagram engagement and stuff like that it feels like everything has increased tenfold. You feel a different just after one. Ufc fight the way the out the community. Because i feel like everyone respected you whether you're fighting you're not but the outside world views you now that you're a ufc fighter one thousand percent and it's has pretty crazy since my just since my the announcement on that when dana got on sportscenter and say we just signed michael chandler. I mean since that day everything has changed now granted it. It didn't really change. Until i beat dan hooker and finished him in the first round. Because until then. I actually took just as much just as much hate as i did. You know. I got praised because people saw me come into the ufc. Get the world title. Shot backup. Who is this guy. What's his name where's he from. He's from be leagues. you know. he's easing outside. Or why isn't one of these other guys. So i took a lot of a lot of criticism for that But i knew in the back of my mind. Every time i saw the comments every time. I heard people say things every time i i felt the general aura of of disbelief. In this new guy coming in. I had this kinda slight smile on my face and the feeling of my heart like eventually on the where these people down. I'm going to show them. Every single thing in life changes with time and circumstance. I just needed some time to be in the organization. Get my feet wet. Continue to wear people down and continue to push out my message. Continue to let people see my workouts. Seen drive see the way in which. I live my life in eventually. I was going to wear people down and i was just sitting here talking to my manager randall. Last night The the deans diaries video came out yesterday. Got one hundred fifty thousand views in the first twelve hours thousand something comments and i'll read them all but the amount of comments on youtube videos social media and stuff that essentially say man. I really hated this guy when he came into the sea. but now i like us really war. These really grown on beats. I think those messages are probably the probably the most satisfying because we judge a book by its cover and then we realized well we kinda liked kind of like that guy turns out. I was just about to ask you if you notice the difference. I've noticed the difference. I felt people thought like you were entitled When you came in you were being handed something on a silver platter barefoot in your dues now noticing it and i wonder if that has anything to do with that post fight interview in the cage in how you nail that and how inspiring was reminiscent of another great from yesterday. I wonder if that really dear to the public. I don't know i'm just throwing aby. Maybe i mean. I heard a lot of people. Say that was really trained. But i've heard a lot of you know that. I mean you wanna ride the fine line. Between as long as i people know like the real me the real me i try to operate with integrity humility and and put my best foot forward but throw a little bit a crazy nasty loudness in there like the post speech. You know But you know you go back to. I go back to that word entitlement. I think that was exactly what happened to. I didn't come into the ufc. Asking him for title shots crazy amounts of money asking for anything. All i ask for his. Hey give me an opportunity to prove. Either i am or i am not who i say i am. I believe i'm a top five guy looked. Gimme a top five guy right away. It's sink or swim. Come in and the ufc gets the they get the satisfaction of kicking a bella tour guide to the wayside or man. Okay this guy is pretty good one of the top five guy right away. They granted that wish But i didn't come in asking for any of these crazy things. It's just kind of happening. I think it's you know it's a blessing to me. It's it's a testament to wear the the ufc values my skill set. And what i bring to the table as an athlete by the way is the nature. Boy gonna walk you out. On saturday remains to be seen. We shall see not. He's not he's not but maybe eventually we'll see. I just left it at that people would just for that. Maybe maybe he is though. I appreciate transparency. By the way. I know the whole like backup fighters but before all that emerged if you know put pen to paper even when you were negotiated with them if someone would have told you that you'd be fighting for a title for the title within less than a year of finding them would you believe them or in the back of your mind. Did you think it would take two three four fights in the back of my mind. I thought it would take two three or four fights. But i think also just managing expectations in the last thing you want to do is come into. Ufc thinking you're to get us title. Shot your second fight. And then it takes three fights or fights to do it You know. I think. I think more than anything i've I've always expected. Great things in my life for all my life and accomplishments. Because i do think i do the right things and i work hard but at this point in my life. It's just been revealed to me so many times that i cannot continue to put limits on on god's promises and god's calling on my life like i think i stand here today. Are here today feeling as though we're on the cusp of something ridiculously huge. That's going to impact millions and millions of people And i cannot continue to operate with limits being put on me with glass ceilings. Being above my head life was was was created to be lived and lived at the fullest. So at this point. I humbly say i am not surprised you no surprise surprise like here we are it now. Here we are. I honestly can't believe it. And i i go back to my my conversation with with hundred gamble dana white when they called me after they were just like. Hey you know what happened quicker than than we thought than. You thought that anybody thought but you know this. This makes the most sense for for the division. And get your down to florida because you gotta title fight and here. I am seven and a half since seven and a half weeks removed from that phone call about to get the biggest opportunity my life and i am more confident they ever been and i'm going to go out there and just dominate. Obviously you don't know what it will feel like when it happens but knowing you a little bit like i do and how competitive you are and how you have these lofty goals and you to be considered the best. Do you think the victory will feel as satisfying beating. Charles vera as opposed to say beating habib. You know that's what you said you wanted to do like will you consider yourself the undisputed champion. Even though you're not beating the guy who held the belt last i will only because we have to. We have to take a look at all.

"Moment. Have you ever felt prior to this moment like you reach the top or was the top always exclusive to the ufc atop was always exclusive to the ufc. You know and i think you're lying to yourself if you if you don't think that that's that's true I can i know. I know this from experience. Been outside the you have c. Just a different experiences different animal. The rosters are just more deep The depth the roster in lightweight vision every division is just Just much bigger here in the ufc. And that's there. There are certain athletes outside. You have see like. I always thought i was And i always took a lotta from. I told you. I think i could be could be. I told you. I might be one of the top guys in the world but everybody say okay. Want us to go to see to prove it. So that's what i'm doing. I knew i wouldn't be able to sleep at night If i didn't To sleep and take this. Take this jump to the ufc. But i've always known that i was one of the top guys in the world but until you prove it in the octagon in the ufc. It's kinda just lip service and it's really unfortunate because you're never going to be number one unless you're in the afc to that point. Have you noticed. A palpable difference. In the way in which people view you and treat you now that you're ufc fighter for only eight months. I mean you were the face a bell tour for a decade. I remember the dave and buster's commercials. I remember when they went to spike. And you're the guy that they were pushing however even just looking at like your small things like instagram engagement and stuff like that it feels like everything has increased tenfold. You feel a different just after one. Ufc fight the way the out the community. Because i feel like everyone respected you whether you're fighting you're not but the outside world views you now that you're a ufc fighter one thousand percent and it's has pretty crazy since my just since my the announcement on that when dana got on sportscenter and say we just signed michael chandler. I mean since that day everything has changed now granted it. It didn't really change. Until i beat dan hooker and finished him in the first round. Because until then. I actually took just as much just as much hate as i did. You know. I got praised because people saw me come into the ufc. Get the world title. Shot backup position. Who is this guy. What's his name. where's he from. He's from be leagues. you know he's easing outside or why isn't one of these other guys. So i took a lot of a lot of criticism for that But i knew in the back of my mind. Every time i saw the comments every time. I heard people say things every time i i felt the general aura of of disbelief. In this new guy coming in. I had this kinda slight smile on my face and the feeling of my heart like eventually on the where these people down. I'm going to show them. Every single thing in life changes with time and circumstance. I just needed some time to be in the organization. Get my feet wet. Continue to wear people down and continue to push out my message. Continue to let people see my workouts. Seen drive see the way in which. I live my life in eventually. I was going to wear people down and i was just sitting here talking to my manager randall. Last night The i think the deans diaries video came out yesterday. Got one hundred fifty thousand views in the first twelve hours thousand something comments and i'll read them all but the amount of comments on youtube videos social media and stuff that essentially say man. I really hated this guy when he came into the sea. But now i like of us really war. These really grown on beats. I think those messages are probably the probably the most satisfying because we judge a book by its cover and then we realized well we kinda liked kind of liked. That guy turns out. I was just about to ask you if you notice the difference. I've noticed the difference. I felt people thought like you were entitled When you came in you were being handed something on a silver platter barefoot in your dues now noticing a and i wonder if that has anything to do with that post fight interview in the cage and how you nail that and how inspiring was reminiscent of another great from yesterday. I wonder if that really dear to the public. I don't know i'm just throwing aby. Maybe day i heard a lot of people. Say that was really trained. But i've heard a lot of you know that. I mean you wanna ride the fine line. Between as long as i people know like the real me the real me i try to operate with integrity humility and and put my best foot forward but throw a little bit a crazy nasty loudness in there like the post speech. You know But you know you go back to. I go back to that word entitlement. I think that was exactly what happened to. I didn't come into the ufc. Asking him for title shots as crazy amounts of money asking for anything. All i ask for his. Hey give me an opportunity to prove. Either i am or i am not who i say i am. I believe i'm a top five guy. Looked gimme a top five guy right away. It's sink or swim. Come in and the ufc gets the they get the satisfaction of kicking a bella tour guide to the wayside or man. Okay this guy is pretty good one of the top five guy right away. They granted that wish But i didn't come in asking for any of these crazy things..

"Dustin has a lot of options right now. Is there anything you want to say to dustin. As you considers his options he wouldn't win. Way gotta talk. Shots was very happy for that. So there's a flight to find him. There's no other guy in front of him but look what he's done on. I in warwick pony furnace. Did you all the other whites before. John's pick the that's the point. Solar it's Shoddy all right. So that was great stuff from all three men Don't have a lot of answers right now. But i do like to talk to them kind of feel and see where their head is at. I think the michael chandler thing being offered a fight. Ufc two fifty eight against some unknown opponent was super interesting. He is really endearing himself to the brass. Obviously the support as in the driver's. See right now. I don't necessarily agree with him that they wouldn't do the connor trilogy fight for the belt But i think this is what i know for sure. What i know for sure is imported next. Fight needs to be for a title now whether or not they want to give him. The title Once hubby relinquishes it fine sure i wouldn't have a problem with that the guy deserves it. you could make a strong case for the conor mcgregor fight Being for a title two weekends ago if they don't do that his next fight needs to be for the vacant title. That i know for sure now do they go with condor three for the vacant title. Do go with justin g- h. e. for the vacant title. Do they go with michael chandler for the vacant title to go which is all for the vacant title. I think from a meritocracy standpoint. No-one has a better case in charles. Lavera eight in a row. Seven of those eight wins. Were finishes i. I just don't see anyone out there with a stronger case than him. If you're going for business connors the biggest name. He's the biggest business you can make a strong case then for chandler versus kitschy And then there's a ton of other interesting options at one. Fifty five like feld versus ferguson. And guys like that. Of course there's not as out there and what are they going to do with him so a very interesting time at one fifty five and i look forward to seeing how it all plays out now of course as you know. The ufc was off this past weekend a rare weekend off. But they're back this weekend with show headlined by ulcer over reimburses alexander volkov interesting than that in many respects is the co main frankie edgar versus koi san hagen. You know how i feel about koi san hagan. This is a massive opportunity for him to take that next step at one thirty five and this is the first of several shows in a row for the ufc one championship on fridays. Well but Things are going to get really interesting. Now is suspect. We're gonna have a wednesday show I will most likely be on the road doing another. Nba game. yes. I'm going on a plane for the first time since march of last year for the first time since i came home from izzy versus romero ahead to book a flight. And i'm going to get on a plane and go to milwaukee that So all you people making fun of me for not leaving my house. You can't joke about that anymore. And so we'll probably do one from the road. Stay tuned for that. But i'm happy that we were able to give you guys wanna show if you want those full interview go to youtube dot com slash. Espn mma page. You know the site by now also continue to rate download subscribing review. It's very important. You may not think it's important but it is very important my friends i appreciate it very much.

"Was former ufc champions. I've done it with a lot them. I've been a perennial top. Ten top fifteen guy at my worst. Even when i lost fights even when i had to pull myself back up and dust myself off. Don't use the word. Hasn't the word the phrase hasn't earned it around me now. I just came into your organization. I just came into the top five. Kick down the door. Knock that a guy in two and a half minutes that you couldn't finish twenty five minutes and i think i've cement the myself as the top guy have. I earned it in the afc yet. No but but if that's the case i'm not going to earn. Ufc to his standards for the ten fights. You know the guys got twenty six points in the afc. At what point do i learn it. So i kind of I kinda. I heard it loud and clear right away and then i started thinking about it and thought man. It's a little bit. It definitely a little bit on the. I'm not gonna use the word disrespectful even though i just did is probably gonna make the headline But it just it kind of is it but it doesn't really matter at this point. I have submitted myself inside the top five but finished the finish. The guy that nobody else thought i was gonna be able to finish. Submit the myself in the top five. And we're gonna. We're gonna see some clarity. you know. i've said yes now to every single opportunity. I said yes to three different opponents in october i said yes to numerous opponents in january ended up being on dan hooker. Matter of fact. I even said yes to another opportunity here in the next couple of weeks gets to try to get some some clarity in you'll. Ufc the white lightweight division. I've showed up from outside or inside the dark horse contender within the next the last couple of months. So you think. I earned whether you think i earned it or not as irrelevant. I'm going to win the world title here in twenty twenty one. What's that opportunity in the next couple of weeks. I said yes to an opportunity i was. I had a phone call. Just said hey. Would you be willing to fight in the next couple of weeks. And i said yes There's a big pay per view coming up. I said yes to it. I knew i wasn't. I wasn't didn't have any names being thrown around necessarily but i knew that it would be somebody by process of elimination. Somebody ranked ahead. Is that happening. it's not happening. I had a twenty four. I had a twenty four ounce bone in rib by sitting in front of me at cain. Prime steakhouse my favorite place on earth. By favorite place to eat on earth. I stopped eating it right then and there. I was on a plane to florida. I landed in florida. Forty eight forty eight hours later. Because i said yes to another opportunity i was ready to stay there and training for the next four straight for the next eight days and then hop on a flight vegas It did not come to This opportunity did not come to fruition. Based on the other person saying no but i said yes. I'm trying to get some clarity in this lightweight. division. I'm trying to i'm trying to strike strike while the iron is hot this. Ufc lightweight division needs a mix of a fresh face a fresh leader. And i'm right here to put myself on the leaderboard. Saying you're back home in nashville. You're at your favorite steakhouse. You're eating you get a call to fight. Is this on the february thirteenth. Pay per view. Okay at this point. I didn't know it needed a new at this point. I didn't know it needed a new co main event. Chris wideman and your i hall right it come to find out it turns out that was it but we you know we know that And i said i was asked. Would you be willing to fight february thirteenth. I without hesitation said yes. Wow and then you got on a plane to ford and then the fight fell through in any came back home. What that's all happen last week. Who the opponent. i you know the opponent. You're just not telling me right me too. I know by process of elimination. Who who they who they were probably talking to your oliveira. I don't know. I mean the ufc ufc's big organization great organization. There's no shortage lightweight. There's only a couple of ahead of me so we'll leave that. Wow and are you bummed. It's not happening. Yeah i'm bummed man. I was ready to step back. The gone continue to climb. The ranks continued to climb the ladder. Because all these other guys wanna sit out and jockey for position now. Listen i understand am i. Am i disappointed absolutely. But do i hold it against anybody. Who's not taken the fights against me. No i'm not listen. Let's just go by. Let's just go down the line real quick for everybody who who doesn't know i signed in september. I said yes to pour a yes to ferguson. In october turns out of said no i turn into the backup for the world title fight then. I wonder if in january names Gets booked against connor Ferguson said no in january keiichi said no in january olivera said no in january. Dan hooker says yes. I fight dan hooker. I'm i'm by no means a yes man. I'm here to stand up for myself. But i'm here to strike while the iron is hot boys. There's you gotta make hay while the sun is shining in the sun is shining on the ufc lightweight division. The most energetic most electrifying. Most shaken up most fun division most deep division in the in the ufc man. and i'm here To have a good time in a said. Yes i'm gonna i'm saying yes while a lot of other guys are saying no but it's It's neither here nor there as i said disappointed. Yes but do i hold it against these guys. Absolutely not so. What are the chances now. This gets moved to the march. Six one the march twenty seven pay per view. There's a few coming up. I is that there is no that and that's not the plant so there's a big difference between saying. Hey listen i'm in shape. I just got done with the training camp. I can leave my family for twelve days. Fourteen days sixteen days go climb. The lightweight ranks go solidify myself as a number one contender. Go make another paycheck. There's a big difference in that and then saying okay. Hey you can fight in march or early april. Now i gotta go leaving for six more weeks listen. I was in training camp back in twenty twenty from march to august than september than from august. October and then from november all the way to january. Man i gotta give my family time my time. My service my love. I want to be right here under this roof here in nashville with them for the next four or five six weeks wanna take some trips. My wife's everything in the world is to travel the world. So we're gonna do some travelling. And i deserve my body deserves a little bit of wrestler but reset But it's going to be a nice fund summer and i will solidify myself either as the world champion of the number one contender in the lightweight. Division tell me crystal-ball honestly what do you think happens for you next and for the title. Who do you think is your next opponent because of what just happened. Because i actually think look. This is the way it works. Sometimes you step up the reward you you don't step up you kind of go a little bit to the back of the line so i can. I could see a scenario where they're gonna even push you even more now because you did this. Yeah i mean. I don't know why i don't know all i know is i'm just. What do you think tokyo Who would you know what you're suggesting. Dust connor versus just a number one contenders. Our you're thinking that would be my favorite. That would that would be my preference. I think i think i think me versus gay. Ci is a fight that everyone wants to see you know. Are you kinda over charles at this point because of this. No i think i mean first of all i never. I never told you whether they offered the fight. Charlie i'm just reading between the lines here. I'll all i know is a name was actually not thrown out to me. All i said was. Yes i would fight on february thirteenth. You said you said yes to anyone anyone on my gosh. They must have like a free shrine built for you bill for me. This is what we do. We're fighters we say yes to fight this what we're supposed to be doing and granted. I realize i'm coming in in a position where i need to say. Yes more than other people and you say yes run. It's all worked out. Well if i had it my way. Yeah it would be. It'll be just. Because i think that's a fight that excites me. I think it's a fight where i match up extremely well against justin gave you a guy who i tangle with a couple of times named eddie alvarez who beat just engage you whenever they whenever they fought for the unofficial title of most violent guy in in mixed martial arts the most violent guy in the ufc. Eddie alvarez won that fight. I think i'm the the new most violent guy in the ufc if she wants to prove that he's going to step into the octagon against me if he wants to wait. There's obviously the olivera fight that he could get. I guess you could also get the poor fight or the winner roy connor. I mean you know. I'm i'm willing to say yes when a lot of guys are saying no..

"But couldn't hit it every you know, if you tried in this fight even v landed ten leg kicks he wouldn't be able to hit it. We know the longtime devastating and the thanks of stating. But it's actually nailing that nerve the way he did. So that it affects Michael Chandler the way had did ever, Pat Meltzer. Studies to teach his all his guys melted fighting system guys. But we never they've been doing. We didn't see it in fights. I never saw the ankle twist like that. And so will not be able to step forward believe him because militia Chandler no premise because when he threw it you could throw that kick. And then think oh, I I heard it exists, and it's probably happened in practice. But I don't know that that something you can do you didn't know what you were doing though, you would you would strike just the leg. I think the fact that he kept hitting that same spot at think, you really didn't know what he was doing. Right. But what I don't know if the other ones were more effective because he had. Already hit the sweet spot or have you kept hitting the sweeps sweet spot. That's the tough part. I think he kept hitting asleep spot, really. I think it did. So well, he isn't a feed it. He's eight no. So that's the Senate. I mean, he won he won. There's no around. I ever he fights spot. He pretty much has a w. Yeah. But you gotta remember to Chandler pop. The shit out of them at one point. He just didn't really have the leg to go. And and get the finish. So it's a dangerous game. Just go in there thinking that's what I'm gonna do push the button. But I really do feel like he I'm big Chandler fan. But I can meant that. I think I think that I needed is doing think his strategy worked. But look at a guy that Henry hoof, that's his specialty. So he's just gonna make don't hit it if it's that easy because you're eighteen months ago. He don't. Sued was three months ago. That means they're about. Thirteen months apart or something like that. Bef- prior to those two I hadn't really seen that. So while Benson Senate a few times in his fight. But I haven't seen the opponents foot Ben like that I've seen people out, and they can't put pressure on it or whatever, and they're limping, but I've never I've seen people like fall to the ground and they wave off the five, but what I've never seen is that when you try and step and your brain says step forward that you can't because your foot is tucked in.

"I am begging for this fight, and now he should be thanking me once again for another one getting the seven. Occasionally number two, affording him the opportunity to take his family on vacation because part time fighters don't have the finances nor the opportunity to take their family to beautiful place like Hawaii, so he can thank me for that as well. So I mean, yes, I think it must be tough seeing seeing everything on the sidelines, but you gotta remember, that's just who he is. He's a part time fighter. I hope he's a part time data part time husband part time, co worker part time, everything. I hope he's I hope he following through and other areas in his life. But we know in fighting mixed martial arts, he's part time and he was he was he had a fourteen month layoff the last year in June, whenever I fought him, he hadn't thought and step in the cage for fourteen months because of an injury, and now it's going to be eighteen months. So one fight in thirty two months is absolutely ridiculous. And that's just that's. It's just it's got to be. Tough sitting back and wishing I mean, the guys what happened over six with KEB even Connor. And then two days later, fifty cent talking about Bella tour and offering them offering them all this money. Not one time was it mentioned that people wanna see Khabib fight Bryant's pre-bus not once. Was there a mention of him fighting anybody else in Bella tour besides Michael Chandler? So that must that must stink. You know, it's, it's, it's all part of it man, and and you know, I love the sport. I love to be respectful of everybody. I'm fighting. I respect everybody, but this is just something I'm excited to put the bed and put him to sleep in the first round. Let me just ask you quickly because the mention of free vacation factors into my other question. My my broadcast partner, Frank MIR is going to be on the card with you, and I just happened to be at the MIR house. When news of the Hawaii booking was announced and boy, MS. His mirror was happy. Normally she dreads these fight camps. I think she wanted to leave next week and just do the whole fight camp out there. So how did that announcement play in the Chandler household? Because this is an exactly getting booked in Iowa somewhere for a fight or Thakur village. Yeah, that, yeah, yeah, especially with Bella doesn't always do the best. You know the, the biggest invest venues. I mean, they've been doing awesome ones lately, which is awesome to see that growth of the Belot organization. But when you talk about Hawaii and you talk about partnering up the USO you talk about fighting near Pearl Harbor. Do you know when you talk about hidden when you talk about Herod ice, you know, I, it's absolutely awesome. And yet we have, we have a couple days set aside afterwards to enjoy. Obviously from the moment I get there till the moment I finish Ben p Mus I will be there working, but as soon as I get done, you know, we're going to blossom steam and enjoy and enjoy Hawaii. And like I said, you know, I. I'm proud of him for getting this opportunity and he can thank me for for helping him get to get his family on a vacation because he's not going to be able to do it fighting once every two and a half years. Like he's. Michael Chandler's. Our guest here on EMI junk radio..

"So they're days michael chandler here on the espn five rounds podcast great interview good talker and after hearing him in that interview bread do you think he leans bella tour or do you think he's really giving the ufc a serious consideration i think you know he he went out of his way at every every opportunity to talk about how great bella towards been and i don't think he's doing that you know just so that they don't get mad at him i think he genuinely respects and appreciates the way that the promotion has had his back and he's been there guy i mean through to regimes beyond revenue scott coker bella tor has always valued michael chandler and they they'll continue to valium here but he's in a great spot you know the lightweight division has never been better in history of the sport the division may have never been better than it is right now and you know it's interesting to hear him talk about fans fans reaching out and saying we want to see you in this fight we wanna see you in that fight i mean at the end of the day money is going to dictate i think anybody's decision when it comes to this you know like like he said you have a short time to do this if one promotion is willing to pay you far more than the other one that's probably the route you're gonna take and it's a route that i think most of us would take but it's i think it's weighing on him that all these fans and him himself i'm sure that he wants to get involved in that mix in the ufc i i know he does and isn't it interesting that you asked what fight it no matter the the stakes are no matter the situation he says eddie alvarez and that's the one he hears about the most and the alvarez is in the ufc so i just wonder how much that will play a factor into his decision making i it's it's very interesting situation for michael january i i don't think you can debate at all that the better fights for him are in the uc i don't think that's even up for debate but bella tower is going to come with very strong offer and i think it's.
