The UFC has tonight announced that the featherweight bout between Conor McGregor and Cole Miller is set to headline the UFC’s return to Dublin on July 19th.
Last night’s announcement on BT Sport’s Beyond The Octagon show of five official bouts, which included Neil Seery and Gunnar Nelson, did not include a headlining fight, though most assumed that McGregor versus Miller would be announced imminently.

McGregor (14-2, 2-0 UFC) has been sidelined with an ACL injury since his unanimous decision win over Max Holloway at UFC on FOX Sports 1 in Boston last August. He made his debut for the promotion at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in Sweden in April 2013 where he knocked out Marcus Brimage in just 67 seconds.
His opponent Cole Miller (21-8, 10-6 UFC), has won his last two in the UFC, with his most recent being second round submission win over Sam Sicilia back in January at UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs Phillipou.
Main and Co-Main? yeah i’ll take that 🙂
