As expected, Conor McGregor (pictured) will make his return to the Octagon in Boston. On Friday, it was announced the up-and-coming featherweight will fight Andy Ogle at UFC on Fox Sports 1 1.
The August 17 event takes place inside TD Garden in Massachusetts.
McGregor, who has won fans over with his ability to talk the talk and walk the walk, will be riding a nine-fight winning streak into the matchup. The 24-year-old disposed of Marcus Brimage in his big league debut at UFC on FUEL TV 9.
Ogle, meanwhile, has rattled off eight wins in his past nine outings. He was last seen taking a decision victory over Josh Grispi in February.
The 145-pound shootout will likely appear in the night’s prelims.
Here are the athletes expected to perform in Beantown thus far:
Uriah Hall vs. Nick Ring
Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson
Conor McGregor vs. Andy Ogle
Matt Brown vs. Thiago Alves
Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne
Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva
