Former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez recently went on record to warn Michael Chandler about fighting Justin Gaethje. Having fought “The Highlight” himself, here’s what Alvarez advised his former Bellator rival.
I think Gaethje is a terrible match-up for him. And I think he should probably stay away from Gaethje. That’s not a good match-up for him.
Chandler recently spoke to MMA Fighting to address these comments, among other things. First, he did acknowledge that Gaethje could be a difficult matchup for him, as the rest of the 155-pound’s top-tier competitors would.
