Michael Chandler Calls Out Conor McGregor on WWE Raw

In September of 2023, the worlds of WWE and UFC collided, giving birth to TKO — a powerhouse fusion of entertainment and combat sports. On Monday night their partnership kicked into high gear. In addition to their joint events held in Anaheim during Presidents Day Weekend, one of UFC’s most recognizable stars made his presence known during a WWE broadcast.

On Monday night’s broadcast of WWE Monday Night Raw, UFC’s Michael Chandler made a brief but impactful appearance. Introduced by ring announcer Samantha Irvin, Chandler commanded attention from the front row. With a mic in hand, he declared himself the pinnacle of UFC entertainment. Directing his words like precision strikes, Chandler issued a bold challenge to Conor McGregor, expressing his impatience with McGregor’s prolonged absence. Urging McGregor to return to the Octagon, Chandler emphasized their unresolved rivalry, setting the stage for potential fireworks in the future.

“Hey, what’s up Anaheim? Hey, you are now in the presence of the most entertaining UFC fighter on the planet! Now, there is a man from Ireland who’s been making me wait for way too long — and I’ve still got one dude on my mind…Conor McGregor, get your candy ass back to the Octagon. We’ve got some unfinished business boys.”

Following his Raw appearance, Chandler took to social media and posted pictures alongside WWE’s Chief Content Officer, Paul “Triple H” Levesque, accompanied by the cryptic message “Contract signed.” Levesque, adding fuel to the fire, stirred speculation on Instagram, teasing the unpredictable nature of TKO Group takeovers. His post celebrated Chandler’s presence at WWE RAW, hinting at the exciting possibilities that lie ahead.

“Anything can happen at a TKO Group takeover. Great to have Michael Chandler at WWE RAW tonight.”
