The Notorious will be welcomed back to the octagon by fellow fan favourite Michael Chandler – his rival coach on season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter.

Tickets for the Return of the Mac have sold like hotcakes, with most of the seats at the T-Mobile Arena having already sold out.

And the tickets already sold, according to UFC president and CEO Dana White, have shattered the promotion’s live gate record.

The record was previously held by the historic UFC 205 card at Madison Square Garden, which McGregor headlined.

The live gate for the 2016 extravaganza was a whopping £13,662,593.

But the gate for UFC 303, according to White, is set to dwarf that massive figure.

During the UFC St Louis post-fight press conference last weekend, White said of the gate: “It’s already way over $20million.”

UFC 303 will likely do north of one million pay-per-view buys given the immense interest in McGregor’s return.

The Irishman, 35, hasn’t set foot inside the octagon since shattering his left leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

McGregor underwent a long and arduous rehab to recover from the shattered tibia and fibula he suffered in the Sin City showdown.

Inside McGregor’s Notorious lifestyle

With more sides to his personality than an Octagon, Conor McGregor’s rise has been an enthralling watch.

But the Dubliner will have no qualms about firing his once-snapped limb at the dome of Chandler.

In a recent interview with James Corden, the Dubliner said: “I am Terminator now.

“I have a titanium rod that goes into the knee and down to the bone, right down to my ankle.

“It’s unbreakable.

“I wish for and I will work on landing this kick – with this steel bar in my leg – against an opponent and getting them out of there.”
