Michael Chandler Says He's Ready for Rick Hawn
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.17.2013



Michael Chandler recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight against Rick Hawn at Bellator 85. Check out the highlights:

On his rise to the top: "It's been a pretty quick rise. I can't talk to anybody without them bringing (Alvarez) up. The fans loved that fight. For me, it hasn't been a ton different (since winning the title). I'm trying to keep the main thing the main thing and that's getting better. I'm still relatively young in this sport young, hungry, happy, healthy and enjoying this ride."

On Hawn's power: "I think I have a pretty tough chin, and I've tested it against some of the hardest hitting guys in the world. Patricky put a couple on me. Eddie put a couple thousand on my chin in the third round. I think I have a tough chin and a heart that's not easily stopped. I plan on going out there and taking it to him."

On being prepared mentally: "I'm definitely more motivated than him. I'm in this sport to be the No. 1 lightweight in the world. I'm not saying I am that, but I'm working toward that. He's an Olympian who represented my country, and anyone who represents my country in the Olympics, I have a ton of respect for. He's a great competitor and has a ton of confidence and momentum behind him. But at the end of the day, I do, too."
