Islam Makhachev, a lightweight contender in the UFC, has revealed what Michael Chandler must accomplish to gain his respect in the title race.

At UFC 280 on October 22, Makhachev will compete against Charles Oliveira for the vacant lightweight championship. After a 10-fight winning streak, including recent victories over Bobby Green and Dan Hooker, he earned the chance to defend his title.

Makhachev hasn’t been impressed by Chandler’s performance in the Octagon, despite the former Bellator champion’s recent viral knockout of Tony Ferguson at UFC 274. At UFC 262, Chandler faced Oliveira for the second round in his UFC career, however Chandler was defeated by a second-round TKO.

Makhachev offers a suggestion for Chandler to grab more attention as he prepares for the biggest bout of his career.
