The clock is ticking ever nearer to Conor McGregor’s UFC comeback.

The Irishman, absent from the cage since sustaining a severe leg injury in his most recent bout in the summer of 2021, will once again set foot on Octagon canvas in Las Vegas in the headline fight of UFC 303 on June 29 — an event which acts as the final bookend to the organisation’s annual International Fight Week festivities.

And now, with just over 50 days remaining until the fight, the UFC’s promotional gears are beginning to turn as the organisation has released the first official poster for the event. Check it out below.

The fight card, which is expected to be among the biggest pay-per-view sellers in the UFC’s three-decade history, will also feature a co-main event between former light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill, who will look to rebound from the first knockout loss of his career at last month’s UFC 300 when he takes on the experienced Khalil Rountree Jr., a fighter who is in the midst of the longest win streak of his professional career (five fights). This includes four finishes, including last December’s TKO win against the always tough Anthony Smith.

Ian Machado Garry who, like McGregor, is a former champion of the Cage Warriors promotion, has also been actively campaigning for a spot on the card — but has so far been unable to secure his desired fight with former welterweight title challenger Colby Covington.
