Bryce Mitchell believes Conor McGregor could handily beat Michael Chandler if he’s on steroids.
Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor has been out of action for nearly two years. He was forced to the sidelines after suffering a horrible leg break injury in his last outing against Dustin Poirier in Jul. 2021. He underwent surgery and appears to have recovered well since, even getting the opportunity to make his Hollywood debut before making his way back to mixed martial arts.
UFC president Dana White confirmed McGregor would make his comeback against Chandler earlier this year.
Bryce Mitchell thinks Conor McGregor would beat Michael Chandler on steroids
In an interview with James Lynch, Bryce Mitchell shared his prediction for the highly anticipated fight between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler. He believes McGregor could win if he continued his alleged steroid use but called for fairness to be ensured.
“I think McGregor’s on steroids and I don’t think they are going to test him properly,” said Mitchell. “I think he’ll win on steroids but if they test him I think it’ll be a good fight. But if he’s on steroids he’ll definitely win. I’m rooting for the American. I hope they don’t just f**king let Conor go in there on steroids like they did Brock Lesnar at UFC 200.”
Mitchell would rather scoop cow manure than watch McGregor fight
‘Thug Nasty’ does not buy into the hype McGregor generates and criticized his contributions to the sport. He’s not interested in watching the fight either as he has other plans he’d rather be doing like scooping cow manure.
“When Conor fights, there’s nothing he do for me, absolutely nothing,” he added. “He don’t give back to the community. Everybody’s all hyped about this guy. I could give a f**k less about a McGregor fight. I’ll be sitting here at the farm scooping up cow manure. That’s what I’ll be doing. That’s a lot funner to me than watching the McGregor fight. I’ll watch the replay on YouTube or some sh*t. I don’t get excited about that sh*t.”
Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler went against each other as coaches for The Ultimate Fighter 31, set to premiere on May 30. They are expected to fight inside the octagon later this year but an official date and card announcement are yet to follow.
