Michael Chandler will be ready to step in and fight Khabib Nurmagomedov or Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 if his services as the backup are needed, and he appears to be extremely confident in both potential matchups.

Although Chandler has yet to clash with UFC competition, he said he fancies either potential matchup.
