Michael Bisping believes that Conor McGregor could be eligible for three different UFC titles by defeating Michael Chandler.

Michael Chandler, Conor McGregor

We all know that Conor McGregor is an enigma in mixed martial arts. From his performances in the cage to some of the controversies he’s been involved in, he’s built quite a legacy for himself in the sport. Now, he’ll write the next chapter in his story at UFC 303 when he goes head to head with Michael Chandler.

Some have suggested that if he wins, he could fight for a title in his next outing. In a recent episode of his podcast, the aforementioned Michael Bisping discussed that possibility.

McGregor’s plan

“They’re promoting this fight big time,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel. “And listen, you never know. Maybe this might be the last time we ever see Conor McGregor fight inside the Octagon. I’m not saying that because I’m telling you right now, if Conor wins, he’s going to fight for a belt next, and there’s multiple belts that he could fight for – 155 (pounds), 170 and the Baddest Motherf*cker title, as well. So there’s a lot of belts and a lot of opportunities for Conor McGregor if he looks good, if he wins the fight and he doesn’t get absolutely smoked.”

“Three years away from the sport, he broke his leg, he’s sleeping in silk sheets and drives a Lamborghini yacht, and he’s a movie star,” Bisping said. “Lots of distractions. Will he be the same person? I’ve always said listen, you give any man two, three months to get their sh*t together, get in a fight camp, lose some weight, get fit and healthy, the man is still only 35 years old. He’s got access to the best training partners on planet earth, and he was a two-weight-division champion. You can’t forget about that stuff. Granted, three years he’s been enjoying himself, he’s been partying. So f*cking what?

“The human body can transform very, very quickly, so is he fully dedicated? We’ve got to assume that McGregor is because he’s lost three of his last four. Two bad losses to Dustin Poirier, beat Donald Cerrone and a loss to Khabib (Nurmagomedov). So it’s not that bad. But fight sports are, ‘What have you done for me lately?’ And since 2020 the world hasn’t seen Conor McGregor win. He needs a win, and he’s looking lean and he’s talking about fighting for a belt next.”
