Helwani speaks about

Ariel Helwani reports that the UFC is investigating choices for another headliner at UFC 303 because of developing issues encompassing the profoundly expected Conor McGregor versus Michael Chandler battle.

Initially booked for June 29, the session denotes McGregor’s rebound after his extreme leg injury during his 2021 loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Fans have been enthusiastically anticipating this conflict since McGregor and Chandler’s pressure-filled associations on the TUF 31 series.

Chandler himself comes into this session following a misfortune to Poirier at UFC 281 of 2022. The energy for this matchup has proactively set another UFC door record, outperforming $20 million in ticket deals.

The primary public interview for the occasion was scheduled for June 3, and tickets sold out in a momentous nine minutes. Nonetheless, the UFC has endlessly delayed the public interview, adding to the hypothesis and vulnerability encompassing the battle.

“The UFC 303 press conference scheduled for Monday, June 3, in Dublin, Ireland, has been postponed until further notice. We sincerely apologize to all the fans who were planning to attend.

We will share it immediately when we have further information on a new date and time. Thank you.” Ariel Helwani Canadian journalist announced.

Conor McGregor recently expounded on his previous proclamations, saying that specific obstructions were frustrating the battle from occurring according to plan. Following these comments, McGregor was captured at a specialist’s office, which powered a hypothesis about a potential injury, notwithstanding his happy disposition in the photos.

In light of these developments, Helwani announced that the UFC had begun investigating possible swaps for the headliner.

Nonetheless, Helwani tempered his proclamation by communicating his conviction that the battle would continue as booked. Yet again, he has voiced vulnerabilities concerning the session’s probability.

Helwani’s Conflicting Messages Have Left Fans and Analysts Uncertain

The inconsistent messages have added to the disarray, with fans and examiners attempting to observe the genuine status of the profoundly expected matchup.

Helwani’s remarks mirror a developing feeling of uncertainty despite his underlying confidence, creating a grey area over the occasion’s future and leaving the MMA group in tension.

“Latest on UFC 303: Around last week, all the anxiety surrounding the UFC 303 main event seemed to dissipate. By Wednesday, no more feelers about replacements were being sent out. All systems seemed to be a go (again), Helwani said.

Later in the week, Chandler did an interview with The Pivot about it being all good, and on Saturday, UFC was promoting it again on the ABC fight night telecast. There was a scare about the fight being off, and the scare appeared to be no more.”

“Is this insurance? Due diligence? Emergency replacement mode? Remains to be seen. It’s all developing (again). But it doesn’t appear as though we are out of the woods either way just yet.

There is more to come, and hopefully, a definitive answer one way or the other will be forthcoming in short order. So…. will we see McGregor vs. Chandler at UFC 303? As the old saying goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Or is this a publicity build-up? It’s anyone’s guess.
