“Ladies and gentlemen, a Happy New Year to you all. I’d like to announce the return date for myself, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor, the greatest comeback of all time will take place in Las Vegas for International Fight Week, June the 29th… and the opponent, Michael Chandler. And the weight, Mr. Chandler, 185 pounds (laughs).”
