Payton Talbott vs. Yanis Ghemmouri Added To McGregor Vs. Chandler Card

Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler’s UFC 303 clash has another fight added to its card as Payton Talbott will face Yanis Ghemmouri in a bantamweight clash. 

Talbott made his debut in 2021 after winning a UFC contract with Dana White’s Contender Series. He won his first UFC fight, beating Nick Aguirre via a third-round submission in November 2023. His next fight was an even better performance, knocking out Cameron Saaiman in the second round to remain undefeated.

His opponent, Ghemmouri, is still seeking his first UFC win. The 29-year-old lost on his UFC debut against William Gomis. But he can redeem himself on the biggest stage. It is McGregor’s first fight since losing to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in 2021. The clash will occur at 170 pounds in what is expected to be a sell-out.

The chief support event will see former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jamahal Hill fight Khalil Rountree Jr. Hill hopes to bounce back following his first-round KO loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 300. Rountree is no pushover, having won five on the bounce.
