Although he didn’t get a post-fight interview, Michael Chandler sent a message to the fans from an ambulance following UFC 268.

Chandler suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Justin Gaethje after their back-and-forth three-round war at UFC 268 last night in New York’s Madison Square Garden.

It was a violent and chaotic affair as advertised with Chandler having some big moments during the contest. However, Gaethje landed the bigger shots including an uppercut which dropped Chandler emphatically.
