Conor McGregor’s return will coincide with the UFC’s trip back to Ireland, as the Irish-born fighter takes on Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night: Dublin. The bout was confirmed by the promotion on Wednesday and will be the main event.
Set for July 19 from The O2 in Dublin, the card will also feature Gunnar Nelson vs. Ryan LaFlare and Brad Pickett vs. Ian McCall.
McGregor (14-2) took the UFC by storm in early 2013 when he finished Marcus Brimage in the first round. He returned a few months later and scored a decision victory over Max Holloway. The 25-year-old hasn’t lost since a 2010 submission defeat in his sixth pro bout.
Miller (21-8) returned to the featherweight division in 2012 and has won his last two. He is 3-1 overall in his last four, including a January submission win over Sam Sicilia.
