UFC president Dana White announced Thursday the promotion signed former Bellator lightweight world champion Michael Chandler.
White didn't confirm when Chandler will make his debut, but the 34-year-old will serve as a backup should either Khabib Nurmagomedov or Justin Gaethje be unable to make the main event of UFC 254 on Oct. 24.
