Connor McGregor set to miss UFC 303

Much to the disappointment of ticket holders, Conor McGregor has scrapped his comeback bout against Michael Chandler at UFC 303. UFC CEO Dana White confirmed the news of McGregor’s withdrawal last Thursday. Despite the setback, the pay-per-view event is scheduled to go ahead on June 29, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, a light heavyweight championship duel featuring current champion Alex Pereira vs challenger Jiri Prochazka will now headline the show.

UFC announces ticket refund rules for UFC 303

UFC CEO Dana White had previously stated that McGregor’s comeback fight would become the hottest ticket in UFC history. The company were expecting well over $20 million in tickets revenue. According to online seating charts, tickets for the McGregor vs Chandler clash were priced as high as $6,000 (£5,000), with the secondary market setting even higher prices.

Following the setback, UFC have announced the ticket refund rules in line with the rules of the Nevada Athletic Commission. This is because the T-Mobile Arena is located in Nevada. Point No. 2 of the NAC statutes, chapter 467.255, states:

If such a change or substitution [Main event] occurs and any patron desires to have the price of the patron’s ticket refunded, the promoter must refund the patron’s money if the patron requests a refund from the promoter within such a period after the promoter publicly announced the change or substitution as the Executive Director deems reasonable.”

Since McGregor’s fight was the main event, fans can submit a refund request in 7 days, ending on June 21, 2024. However, fans need to keep in mind that the above regulations only apply to tickets purchased directly from T-Mobile Arena or from a recognised ticketing partner. For fans who purchased tickets on the secondary market, they cannot receive the same protection.

UFC 303 revised fight card

With McGregor now set to miss UFC 303, the UFC added Pereira vs Prochazka, alongside a co-main event between Diego Lopes and Brian Ortega, as well as a light heavyweight bout between Carlos Ulberg and Anthony Smith. However, with the UFC not announcing any rescheduled dates for the McGregor vs Chandler bout, fans will probably not hold on to their current tickets.

Connor McGregor speaks out

Following the cancellation of his comeback fight, McGregor made a public statement, assuring his followers that he would ‘be back’. However, the Irishman will most probably reach 36 years old before he makes his next appearance into the Octagon. As such, there are high doubts on whether ‘The Notorious’ will ever compete in the UFC again.
