UFC 303 Adds Ranked Fighters Bout to McGregor vs Chandler Card

A fight between top-10 women’s bantamweights Mayra Bueno Silva and Macy Chiasson has been scheduled for UFC 303 on June 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Big news for MMA fans! A top-10 women’s bantamweight clash is on the cards for UFC’s International Fight Week.

So, who’s fighting, you ask? Well, the UFC spilled the beans on Tuesday. It’s Mayra Bueno Silva, the recent title contender, squaring off against Macy Chiasson. The showdown is set for UFC 303, happening June 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Remember Bueno Silva? She’s back in action after a bit of a hiccup. She missed out on the UFC title, losing to Raquel Pennington in a unanimous decision. That was for the vacant championship at UFC 297 in January. But don’t let that fool you. Before that, she was the No. 3 ranked bantamweight in MMA Fighting’s Global Rankings. And she was unbeaten after moving up from flyweight. She even had stoppage wins over Lina Lansberg and Stephanie Egger. Impressive, right?

Now, let’s talk about Chiasson. She’s been doing pretty well herself, winning four of her last six fights. Her most recent victory? A first-round submission win over Pannie Kianzad at UFC Vegas 88 in March. That was her first time back in the ring since a stoppage loss to Irene Aldana at UFC 279 in September 2022. She’s currently the No. 9 ranked bantamweight in MMA Fighting’s rankings.

And let’s not forget the main event. UFC 303 is headlined by none other than Conor McGregor. He’s making a highly anticipated return, facing off against Michael Chandler in a welterweight contest. Can’t wait!
