UFC 303: McGregor vs. Chandler Lineup Includes Undefeated Prospect

Undefeated Payton Talbott (8-0) will fight Yanis Ghemmouri (12-2) in a bantamweight bout as part of the undercard for the upcoming UFC 303 main event featuring Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler.

The McGregor-Chandler showdown is heating up, folks. And guess what? The undercard is getting stacked too.

UFC 303 just got a new addition. Undefeated Payton Talbott (8-0) is set to face Yanis Ghemmouri (12-2). It’s a bantamweight bout, folks.

Here’s the official announcement for the bout. Check it out.

Talbott, the 25-year-old sensation, has been turning heads since his pro debut in 2021. He bagged a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series. And boy, did he make a splash in his first UFC fight! He took down Nick Aguirre in the third round of their November 2023 contest.

But he didn’t stop there. He followed it up with a knockout. A second-round knockout of Cameron Saaiman. His record? Still perfect.

On the other side of the ring, we’ve got Ghemmouri. The 29-year-old Frenchman, known as “The Desert Warrior,” has nearly a decade of fights under his belt. He made a name for himself in the Brave Combat Federation. But the UFC win? It’s eluded him so far. He’s looking to change that after a debut loss to William Gomis.

The main event? It’s a grudge match between former two-division champ Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler, his coaching rival from The Ultimate Fighter 31. They’re going head-to-head at 170 pounds.

And the co-main event? Former light heavyweight champ Jamahal Hill is set to fight Khalil Rountree Jr. UFC 303 is happening June 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Be there or be square.
