CONOR McGREGOR has accepted Michael Chandler's call out for a 2022 fight.
And the Irishman also congratulated his UFC rival on his performance against Justin Gaethje at the weekend.
Both fighters ended up in hospital after the showdown which Gaethje edged 29-28, 29-28, 30-27 on the judges' scorecards.
But Chandler took to social media on Monday, tweeting a photoshopped image of him and McGregor squaring up at a weigh-in.
The American, 35, simply wrote: "2022."
And an hour later, the Notorious replied in uncharacteristically-harmonious fashion.
McGregor, 33, said: "I’m down at some stage for sure.
"Great fight the other night Mike, congrats!"

Chandler then added: "Thank you sir. It would be my pleasure. See you soon."
McGregor remains out of the octagon as he recovers from the broken leg sustained against Dustin Poirier in July.
But while speculation surrounding his next UFC opponent rumbles on, the Dublin star is set for a charity wheelchair boxing match against impressionist and pal Al Foran.
The two-weight former UFC world champion has lost three of his last four MMA contests – including both to Poirier this year.
Those took his overall record in the sport to 22-6.
Chandler has virtually an identical record, 22-7, which like McGregor features back-to-back defeats in his last two outings.
