‘A lot of bullshit fell’
Conor McGregor doesn’t get along with Michael Chandler while filming the latest series of The Ultimate Fighter.
“Notorious” has been in Las Vegas for a few weeks shooting scenes for the MMA reality show alongside his next opponent.
Chandler had relentlessly but respectfully called for a fight with McGregor before facing the Irishman after his lengthy injury layoff.
After his first interactions with the former Bellator champion, McGregor had nothing but good things to say about the man he will meet in the Octagon at some point this year.
He told The Mac Life: “I like Michael, we are guys. I posed with him yesterday. I have no problem with him. I think he’s a good fighter.
“It will be interesting to go up against him (in the show) before I face him (in the fight).”
However, the two UFC stars are no longer on good terms according to Dana White who revealed they had a huge meltdown on Friday.
He said after the fight at UFC 285, “Chandler and Conor were very respectful to each other and then some things started to get worse, as you’ll see on the show.

“They don’t like each other now, there was a lot of bullshit on Friday. I don’t look at stuff that’s good for the show or things like that. What has to happen will happen.
“Things that just happened shouldn’t have happened and I’m getting old, boys. I am getting old. I would have been there sooner back then, but no good… There was a lot of bullshit going down on Friday.
The UFC president refrained from revealing exactly what happened between McGregor and Chandler, but suggested things were getting physical between the two.
‘Mystic Mac’ got angry while filming The Ultimate Fighter in 2015 and clips from his time filming the show eight years later show he’s just as passionate about his fighters after becoming the one of the richest people in sport.
It’s not yet known when or where McGregor and Chandler will face off, but White claimed their fight will be light despite the former two-weight champion who has seriously bulked up during his time away from MMA.
