During a chat with Brian Campbell of Morning Kombat, Michael Chandler expressed his belief that he simply can’t be topped by “El Cucuy.”

“I think I outclass him in all facets of mixed martial arts.”

Chandler went on to say that he plans to take a more measured approach against Ferguson, something that he’s admitted has been missing in his game.

“My confidence in my skill set, my confidence in my preparation is second to none, and I think we go out there and touch gloves and I go out there and look for a finish but in a calculated manner. If the leather starts flying we’ll enjoy that as well.”
