Conor McGregor’s comeback sparks controversy on…


If UFC303 approaches, which marks the long-awaited return of Conor McGregor to the octagon, excitement is buzzing through the MMA community. Scheduled for June 29, the event will see McGregor face off Michael Chandler in a five-round welterweight bout. However, despite the exciting match, the official event poster has caused a wave of criticism from fans.

Fan reactions to the poster:

The official UFC poster for UFC 303 was recently released, but it received immediate backlash. Fans took to social media to express their disappointment and confusion, questioning the UFC’s promotional design efforts.

One fan humorously mistook the poster for a minor event and said, “Oh, I thought this was a Fight Night poster.” Another was more direct in his dismay, exclaiming: “My God, what kind of poster is this?!” The criticism didn’t stop there, with others asking, “Who’s actually designing this?” and someone commented, “Bro, it doesn’t even look like Chandler, it looks like Bisping.”

Conor McGregor’s return:

Conor McGregor, the former two-time champion, is gearing up for his first fight since July 2021, when he suffered a broken leg in a rematch against Dustin Poirier. His opponent, Michael Chandler, has not been seen in the octagon since his submission loss to Poirier in November 2022. This match not only represents a significant return for both fighters, but also puts McGregor back in the spotlight of the MMA world.


UFC 303 Fight Card (Adjusted for US Time Zones):

  • Welterweight: Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler
  • Light Heavyweight: Jamahal Hill vs. Khalil Rountree Jr.
  • Women’s Bantamweight: Mayra Bueno Silva vs. Macy Chiasson

  • Featherweight: Andre Fili vs. Cub Swanson
  • Flyweight: Rei Tsuruya vs. Carlos Hernandez

While the focus should ideally be on the exciting matchups, especially the main event, the controversial poster certainly stole some of the spotlight. Will this impact viewer expectations or fuel more discussions leading up to fight night? Either way, UFC 303 is poised to be a defining moment in the 2023 MMA calendar, allowing fans around the world to witness the highs and lows of the combat sport.
