UFC 303: McGregor vs. Chandler official with 7 fights booked so far

Conor McGregor makes his long awaited return against Michael Chandler at UFC 303 on June 29 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the card is quickly filling up.

On Wednesday, the UFC formally confirmed seven total fights for the event so far.

McGregor fights for the first time in nearly three years after suffering a gruesome broken leg against Dustin Poirier in 2021. It’s been a long road back for the Irish superstar, but he’ll get the chance to return to the win column facing Chandler, who coached against him on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter before finally booking this matchup in June.

The co-main event features former UFC light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill making a quick turnaround from his loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 300, as he faces Khalil Rountree Jr. in a pivotal matchup at 205 pounds. Roundtree enters the bout off five wins in a row — four by knockout — including his finish of one-time title challenger Anthony Smith.
