The UFC announced more matchups for UFC 303. The pay-per-view is scheduled to take place during the promotion's yearly International Fight Week, on June 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event will mark Conor McGregor's highly anticipated return to the octagon after an absence of nearly three years. 'The Notorious' is set to square off in a welterweight showdown against his rival coach from 'The Ultimate Fighter' season 31, Michael Chandler, in the headline bout.

With the main event already generating massive anticipation, fans have been awaiting the announcement of additional matchups to elevate what is expected to be one of the most significant fight cards of the year. Last week, it was announced that former light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill will face Khalil Rountree Jr. in the co-main event of UFC 303.

Combat sports journalist Aaron Bronsteter recently reported on X that the Dana White-led organization announced the undercard for the McGregor vs. Chandler event.

As per Bronsteter's update, the event will also showcase a women's bantamweight showdown featuring former title contender Mayra Bueno Silva taking on Macy Chiasson. Additionally, veteran fighters Cub Swanson and Andre Fili will collide in a featherweight clash, while Joe Pyfer and Marc-Andre Barriault will engage in a middleweight bout.

Also on the card is a strawweight matchup between Michelle Waterson-Gomez and Gillian Robertson. Rei Tsuruya will further make his promotional debut against Carlos Hernandez in a flyweight contest.
