For the last few years, Michael Chandler has served as one of the most entertaining fighters in mixed martial arts. Every single fight he’s in entertains the crowd, with ‘Iron Mike’ having the kind of style that’s impossible not to like. He lays it all out on the line, and more often than not, it leads to a Fight of the Night or Knockout of the Night.


Right now, Chandler is preparing to potentially face Conor McGregor in his next outing – although a date has yet to be set.

In the meantime, he’s been taking part in some interviews, including one recently that saw him give an interesting insight into KOs in MMA.

“I think the most disrespectful thing you can do to a man after he just gets knocked out or whatever, because you’ve seen guys like, oh good job man, good job. To me that’s so disrespectful, I’m just like dude, give me my moment to hate myself for a second. That’s where you’re at, right?

Chandler’s knockout conundrum

“It’s like, give me a moment. I know you just won, but this is my moment. I honestly always do [let the loser come up to me]. It may be misconstrued as bad sportsmanship, because I’m just like, knocked you out, see you later. But it’s kind of just like dude, now you’re in your world, and I’ve been there before. It’s something other than sportsmanship masquerading as sportsmanship. Going up and doing the thing, I don’t know what to call it. The last thing you wanna be told is, hey dude, you did that wrong.”
