There is no set date yet for McGregor and Chandler but there have been rumors that we can expect a fight towards the end of the year either at Madison Square Garden in NYC or the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. This fight could be either a lightweight or welterweight bout, and it is expected to be one of the most anticipated fights of the year.

McGregor has been on the shelf since breaking his ankle in his last loss to Dustin Poirier back in July 2021. He had to have surgery to repair his broken ankle and then went through extensive rehab to get right. Now that he is fully healthy two years later he is ready to attempt to make another run at a world title.
