UFC 303: McGregor vs. Chandler Fight Card Filling Up Nicely

It is now official that Conor McGregor will make his long awaited return to headline UFC 303 versus Michael Chandler.

The pair will meet at 170-pounds this June inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. McGregor and Chandler coached oposite one another on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ Season 31, and since then, fans have been champing at the bit for a fight between them.

While the main event bout that the card is based around is extremely enticing, there are some quite notable matchups that should bring additional attention to the event.

Coming off a knockout loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 300 earlier this month, Jamahal Hill will make a fast return to action to square off with Khalil Rountree Jr. in a light heavyweight co-main. Meanwhile Rountree has been readily awaiting his next opportunity since his knockout win over Anthony Smith in December.

Preceding the co-main and main events, five more exciting matchups have been made official. It is now planned that Mayra Bueno Silva will take on Macy Chiasson in a women’s bantamweight bout, Cub Swanson will meet Andre Fili at 145-pounds, top prospect Joe Pyfer was face Canada’s Marc-Andre Barriault, and submission specialist Gillian Robertson will test her luck versus Michelle Waterson-Gomez.
