Conor McGregor is officially OUT of the main event of UFC 303.

There had been much speculation that the Irishman was injured, and sadly that has turned out to be the case.

McGregor vs. Chandler will be re-booked for later on in the year. The fight has been pushed back because McGregor suffered an injury right before last week’s press conference in Dublin which was cancelled.

UFC president, Dana White, announced the news overnight in a video on social media.

UFC 303 will now be headlined by Alex Pereira and he will defend his light heavyweight title against Jiří Procházka in the main event of the evening.

McGregor last fought in July of 2021 when he took on Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight but fans will now have to wait to see his eagerly anticipated return.
