Michael Chandler has a huge fight coming up, and he’s preparing like a madman. Not like the Bellator lightweight champion would do things any other way. But even though it’s what we’ve come to expect, it still never ceases to amaze me what he puts himself through during camp.
In one of the biggest fights of his career, Chandler will defend his 155-pound title against featherweight champion Patricio Freire in the Bellator 221 headliner on May 11 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.
As he’s known to do, Chandler shared a video on Saturday of himself doing an insane pull-up routine with a medicine ball. Check this out (via Twitter):
Try what they say you can’t…it’s better to fail greatly than to live timidly. See you at the top!
And that’s reason No. 78 why Chandler just might have the craziest work ethic in MMA.
A “Wow” ribbon for the champ.
