Conor McGregor is all set to mark his return to the Octagon for the first time since July 10th 2021 by headlining the main event at UFC 303 which is scheduled for Saturday June 29th.  Conor McGregor went off with a fracture on his foot against Dustin Poirier that night and the injury has kept him on the sidelines. But in June 2024, he is set to mark his return. 

The Notorious anticipated UFC return was about to build up from the 3rd of June itself when both Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler were about to face off each other for the first time with a Press Conference in Dublin.
