Conor McGregor and the tricolour on his poster, name a more iconic duo.
Mike Chandler stands a good chance of getting beat in his first fight.
We'll also see what affect the UFC's drug testing regime has (Pitbull claims Chandler is on gas).
Conor slaughters Dustin.
Hooker beats Chandler soundly.
Hooker says a long list of guys turned down the Chandler fight. I can understand it from the perspective that a lot of casual UFC fans wouldn't know who Chandler is and losing to a newcomer could be bad for your career, but c'mon.
Conor looks to be in phenomenal shape. I think Dustin loses within the first round tomorrow.
Wtf. The espn app crashed and isn't allowing me to watch this event. Looks like many people on twitter are saying the same.
Michael Chandler with a stellar debut.
Survived that first and Dustin crushed it!

Won a cool hundo on Dustin; thanks!
Very happy for Dustin. He should have been crowned champion tonight. Dana did him dirty by not making this a title fight. Dustin is the best LW in the world, outside of Khabib. Not the outcome I expected but an outcome I welcomed. Awesome!
Conor needs to step back and dedicate himself to this game or step away. He's accomplished everything he's wanted; he's made a gazillion dollars; he's changed his life for generations. The game has maybe passed him by. I wonder if he was hurt going into the fight or if the calf kicks are the ones that did it. Conor walked up the octagon steps gingerly; fought in a complete different stance; and looked very average tonight. He blames it on inactivity; he's basically been off for 26 months. I don't count the Cerrone fight as a fight...so he needs to get back in there or hang them up.
Rumor floating around that Hooker retired. He took his gloves off and left them in the ring. No word yet...He seems over it. He looked like he had no interest in there tonight.
Poirier has a GOAT level top 5 wins list: Conor, Max, Max, Gaethje, Alvarez and then runner ups Pettis, Hooker.
Poirier guarantees he will not be fighting Michael Chandler next. Wants Chandler to have to earn his way to title shot.
Dustin wants the Conor rematch, Nate, or Oliveira next. Reiterates he will not fight Chandler. Says he would rather sell hot sauce.
