As part of International Fight Week, McGregor will return to the Octagon for the first time in three years to battle Chandler. ‘Iron Mike’ has been waiting for this opportunity for over a year. Now, he’s finally going to get the chance to prove himself. Of course, it goes without saying, this is trending to be one of the biggest events in UFC history now that Conor is involved.

In terms of the official announcement, White made the call during last night’s UFC 300 post-fight press conference.

After receiving a piece of paper from a member of staff, White made the announcement that McGregor vs Chandler was officially on. It is set to happen at welterweight. This always seemed to be the Irishman’s preferred weight class with regards to this bout.

Nobody knows what Conor is going to look like at 170 pounds. Especially at this stage in his career. In equal measure, we all know Chandler is more comfortable at lightweight. Alas, given the stakes of a contest like this, something tells us that they’re both going to throw caution to the wind.
