After a three-week hiatus since the announcement of Conor McGregor’s rematch against Michael Chandler, Dana White has shared some potential fight locations for the blockbuster fight.
This year marks McGregor’s long-awaited return to the octagon and it has just been announced that Michael Chandler will serve as his opponent. On the other hand, leading up to the fight, they will face off as trainers on The Ultimate Fighter.
The Irish UFC fighter has not competed in almost two years due to a leg injury sustained in his last fight against Dustin Poirier in UFC 264. Conor’s comeback in the Octagon has been eagerly awaited by The Notorious fans.
Conor McGregor’s rematch will be a big spectacle that will captivate millions of MMA fans around the world, according to UFC President Dana White. For this reason, Dana has prepared to stage the fight in a spectacular way in a large stadium with a very large audience.

In an interview with Fanatics View, Dana revealed some information about possible fight locations and much more. Dana said people are already asking him about the location of the fight but UFC is working on it.
“To go to Dallas Texas Stadium you have to have the right fight. Conor and Chandler are doing and coaching The Ultimate Fighter this year and it’s the first time it’s been aired on ESPN, the network; it was on ESPN+, [so this] will make the fight even bigger than it already is,” said Dana White.
McGregor will face Michael Chandler in his second stint as a trainer on The Ultimate Fighter. The two-time featherweight and lightweight world champion has not been a coach at The Ultimate Fighter since his 22nd season in 2015. Last Thursday, the former champion of two different divisions landed in Las Vegas, Nevada to begin preparations for filming season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter.
“Conor McGregor you gotta come back to fight a body… I’m the most entertaining lightweight in the world.”
