After more than two years away from the Octagon due to a leg injury suffered in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor is set to return to the UFC.

The Irish superstar has been hinting at a comeback for a while, targeting a fight with former three-time Bellator lightweight champion, Michael Chandler. The two fighters have exchanged words on social media, building anticipation for what promises to be an epic showdown.

The official announcement came during UFC 300, with Dana White confirming that McGregor’s return bout against Chandler is set for UFC 303. The highly anticipated welterweight clash will take place in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 29, marking almost three years since McGregor’s last fight.

Chandler hasn’t been shy about expressing his confidence ahead of the bout. In previous interviews, he has talked about his preparation and game plan, even predicting a knockout victory within two rounds.

“I always said I wanted you at your biggest, your baddest, and your best. 185 would look good on me,” Chandler stated. He also emphasized his background as a natural featherweight, contrasting it with McGregor’s early career in the UFC.

Chandler further detailed his preparation, sharing insights into his training regimen and strategy. “Give me one year to prepare for a guy like Conor McGregor, and I’m going to be a different animal out there,” he said.

The fight between McGregor and Chandler promises to be a blockbuster event, drawing MMA fans worldwide to witness this highly anticipated showdown between two of the sport’s biggest names.
