The wait is over. If nothing out of the ordinary happens, Conor McGregor will return to the Octagon on January 23, where he will meet Dustin Fourier. The former champion has officially signed the fight and will return to fight exactly a year after his last victory.
McGregor and Fourier will fight in a fight at UFC 257 Central, which is expected to take place at the “Island of Fighting” in Abu Dhabi, but there is still a possibility that the event will take place in Las Vegas.
The fight will be held in the lightweight (up to 70kg) category, a division where McGregor previously held the belt, and now despite announcing his retirement – Habib Normgomedov is still the champion.
As you may recall, after defeating Donald Seroni in 40 seconds in January this year, McGregor planned to fight more times in 2020 but as with most of the world – the plans changed. Fourier for his part defeated Dan Hooker in a decision last June. In 2014, the Irishman overcame Fourier in a technical knockout within the first round.
