British UFC fans receive boost for Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler as Dana White gives fight update | The Sun

UFC president Dana White has issued an exciting update regarding Conor McGregor's return fight against Michael Chandler.

White's blockbuster statement is especially massive for British MMA fans who are eager to see McGregor fight for the first time since his horrible leg break at UFC 264 in 2021.

That is because the American promoter confirmed McGregor and Chandler could face off in a "massive stadium in London".

UFC have yet to book a date and venue for the Notorious' comeback fight after his loss to Dustin Poirier.

But they are considering the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Madison Square Garden in New York and the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The British capital is also in the equation with Wembley and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the likely candidates with a 90,000 capacity, which could smash UFC's attendance record.

White told  Fanatics View: "We’re kind of working that out but to go to the Dallas, Texas Stadium, you have to have the right fight.

"The Dallas, Texas Stadium is a possibility. When you look at a fight of that magnitude, you have got to look at Madison Square Garden.

"Obviously Vegas, we could do the stadium there or do T-Mobile. You look at Dallas, Texas Stadium.

"You could also do a massive stadium in London."
