Emanating from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the Irish megastar will go toe-to-toe with former Bellator MMA champion ‘Iron’ Michael Chandler in a fight fans have been waiting for since it was first announced in early 2023.

Will Conor McGregor Climb back into the win column?

UFC 303 will be McGregor’s first time fighting since suffering a devastating leg injury in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier in July 2021. ‘Mystic Mac’ has lost three of his last four bouts inside the Octagon, including his record-breaking encounter with former lightweight world champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The last time he saw his hand raised was following a 40-second shellacking of UFC Hall of Famer Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 246.
