Michael Chandler aiming for the title- Michael Chandler knocking out Tony Ferguson in the second round of UFC 274 is intense news in the combat sports arena.

The front kick to Ferguson’s face at the opening of the second round made him collapse and whirl in the ground. Which has made him unconscious and instilled a memory temporary memory loss of the fight. Iron rose to sensation and earned knockout of the year by high-fiving El Cucy in the face through his kick.

Iron, being 5 rank fighter in the division, has picked up a potential opponent, which could earn him a title fight.

“Next, I want to put myself in line for the title,” Chandler told TMZ Sports. “I think, in my mind, Beneil Dariush was in the No. 1 contender spot with him and [Islam] Makhachev about to fight to become the No. 1 contender. Beneil Dariush is on a four, five, six — no, seven-fight win streak, maybe. So how do you not say that Beneil Dariush might be the No. 1 contender outside of Islam Makhachev. Essentially the No. 2 contender.

“Maybe you put me and Dariush in by the end of the year, we end up getting some answers pretty quick,” continued Chandler. “You got your new champion in Makhachev or the current champion in Charles Oliveira, then you get a clear-cut No. 1 contender, me or Beneil Dariush. That’s the fight that I see as the biggest potential — and the best potential — for me getting back to the title shot.”

“I’ve asked for Dustin [Poirier] or [Michael] Chandler, but I’m not hearing a whole lot,” said Dariush at The UFC Hall of Fame Honors in July. “So we’ll see what happens… At this point, I just need somebody in front of me.”

Lightweight divisions 6 ranked fighter Beneil Dariush holds a dominant 6 winning streak. The Brazilian jiu jistsu black belt has 21 wins,4 losses, and 1 draw in his professional mixed martial arts career.
