Conor McGregor’s highly anticipated return to the octagon has hit a roadblock. UFC announced that his scheduled fight against Michael Chandler will no longer headline UFC 303 in Las Vegas on June 29 due to an injury. McGregor, who hasn’t fought since July 2021, suffered a first-round TKO loss to Dustin Poirier in his last bout at UFC 264. On that fateful night, he broke his left leg, requiring surgery and months of recovery.

Many believe that he might have injured his left leg again and many still suspect that it is a doping issue. After the cancellation of their fight, there were many questions thrown at Dana White and media reporters among them the one that is asked the most is, Will Conor Mcgregor vs Michael Chandler ever happen?

Ariel Helwani recently shed some light on the issue. Helwani wrote on X: “McGregor vs. Chandler will be re-booked later this year.”

He continued “The fight has been pushed because McGregor suffered an injury right before last week’s press conference in Dublin.” Helwani also claimed that everyone in the UFC tried their best to make this fight happen but eventually, it failed to materialise.

Conor McGregor, known for his charisma both inside and outside the cage, has headlined the five best-selling pay-per-view UFC events of all time. His matchup with Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018 drew a staggering 2.4 million purchases, and his boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather generated 4.3 million PPVs, among the most ever for a sporting event.

As for Michael Chandler, a former UFC lightweight title challenger and longtime Bellator champion, he had hoped to face McGregor. However, it remains unclear whether the matchup will be rescheduled. In the meantime, the new main event for UFC 303 features light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira defending his belt against Jiri Prochazka.
