UFC 268: On 6 November former UFC Title Challengers Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler verbally agreed.
The match has been discussed since the forerunner Champion joined with the UFC last year, Chandler (22-6MMA, 1-1UFC) versus Gaethje (22-3MMA, 5-3UFC).
After coming short of Charles Oliveira for a vacant lightweight in May at UFC 262, Chandler returns into the octagon.
Furthermore, in the first round, Chandler was successful before the first round came to an end. While the first-round TKO win against Dan Hooker won his championship at his debut at UFC 257, Chandler won a shot at his belt.
Champ Kamaru Usman versus Colby Covington, and for world weight championship Michael Chandler versus Justin Gaethje was anticipated in the current UFC 268 lineup.
In addition, a title match between Usman and Covington is likely to be re-played by UFC 268.
