Conor McGregor has revealed his fight date with Michael Chandler.
Both men coached their teams in the latest installment of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ and as is customary were expected to face each other in the Octagon.
But McGregor’s lack of enrollment in the USADA testing pool seemed to scupper hope of a fight this year.
The Irishman’s latest post on X (formerly Twitter) suggests he will return against Chandler on December 16th.

It remains to be seen if it happens, but fans are not convinced.
One said, ‘Not happening. Can’t pass a drug test.
Wish it was but it’s not.’
Another added, ‘I’ll believe it when I see it.’
A third commented, ‘I want to believe this but I don’t.’
