Initially, McGregor was slated to fight Michael Chandler this year after the culmination of TUF 31. However, an unfortunate incident transpired involving the USADA testing, that delayed the Irishman’s return.

Hi, I am Kanishk and I am a UFC Writer at EssentiallySports. I love telling the stories of these magnificent fighters and this wildly unpredictable sport that is so frustrating and yet so joyous at the same time. I never really used to watch MMA, thinking it too crude or brutal a sport to deserve respect.
