UFC's Michael Chandler To Appear At WWE WrestleMania XL?

We at Real Rasslin have come to learn.

Having appeared on WWE Raw on Monday night, could UFC's Michael Chandler be a part of WrestleMania XL? Possibly...

The topic of Michael Chandler doing something at this year's Showcase of the Immortals came up during an appearance from the lightweight contender on Ariel Helwani's MMA Hour (via eWrestlingNews).

As Michael Chandler put it:

"As you know, there are little hints being dropped everywhere. That was definitely coincidental. I had a meeting with Triple H after. We chopped it up, I paid my respects. I grew up watching Triple H. We had a nice little talk. I would love to head out to Philly in April. We'll see what happens."

The former three-time Bellator Lightweight Champion added how Triple H "liked what he saw" from Michael Chandler on Monday night.

In the aftermath of WWE Raw, Michael Chandler took to Twitter (X) to note "contract signed". When asked about the meaning behind this, the 37-year-old explained how he was "implying this is not the last you'll see of me in WWE", adding how he "was the catalyst to start" bringing the WWE and UFC brands together.

For those who missed Michael Chandler's Raw appearance, he called out Conor McGregor, telling Notorious to get his "candy ass back to the Octagon". The Michael Chandler vs. Conor McGregor fight has been in the works for well over a year now but has still not had a date announced.

Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor were opposing coaches on season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter, and historically those opposing judges eventually do battle on PPV once that particular season of the show has wrapped. Despite the final of TUF31 taking place at UFC 292 back in August, the two have yet to step in the cage.

In the case of Conor McGregor, he's not fought since July 2021 loss to Dustin Poirier in which the Irishman suffered a broken tibia. For Michael Chandler, his last fight was likewise a loss against Dustin Poirier back in November 2022. Despite other offers, Michael Chandler has held off on accepting any other fights until he gets the Conor McGregor one.
