Set to headline UFC 303 on June 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the McGregor vs. Chandler bout will be a five-round, non-title welterweight clash.

McGregor and Chandler previously served as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 31 in early 2023.

McGregor, aged 35, has been sidelined since fracturing his leg in his July 2021 defeat to Dustin Poirier.

As a former two-division champion, “The Notorious” remains one of MMA’s most prominent figures, with notable victories over Jose Aldo, Nate Diaz, Eddie Alvarez, Donald Cerrone, Max Holloway, Poirier, and Chad Mendes. McGregor has fought in MMA only four times since securing his 2016 title win against Alvarez, with a record of 1-3 during that period.
