Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler odds released before TUF 31 fight
Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler will be coaches for the upcoming 31st season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), according to a UFC press release today. This highly-anticipated season will culminate in a fight between McGregor and Chandler, and the betting odds for the bout have now been released to the public.
The odds for each fighter to win are currently -110, making it an even matchup. This means that bettors have the opportunity to wager on either fighter and have an equal chance of winning their bet. More specifically, a wager of $110 would be needed to ensure a profit of $100 later this year.
McGregor, the former two-weight champion in the UFC, will enter the fight with a professional record of 22 wins and 6 losses. He’s widely regarded as one of the most charismatic and entertaining fighters in the sport, and his striking ability and knockout power have made him a fan favorite.
Chandler, on the other hand, is a former Bellator champion with a professional record of 23 wins and 8 losses. He’s known for his powerful wrestling and striking skills, and he’s quickly making a name for himself in the UFC.
McGregor is likely to rely on his superb striking to defeat Chandler early in the fight. Despite Chandler having once had a reputation for a suspect chin, he has since proven his ability to withstand the strongest of strikes from other top competitors in the UFC. Although McGregor may have more power than anyone Chandler has faced, the wrestler has the advantage of potentially having McGregor intimidated, allowing him to take more risks while striking. Also, note the development of Chandler’s kicking game which has improved significantly in recent years. However, it remains to be seen how much of a role leg kicks will play in Chandler’s game plan, especially since McGregor is returning from a broken leg.
This season of TUF is sure to be an exciting one, as fans will get to see McGregor and Chandler working with up-and-coming fighters and preparing for their highly-anticipated clash later this year. The exact date and venue for the fight have yet to be announced, but fans can expect a thrilling showdown between two extremely talented fighters.
