If you’ve been following along with the latest updates from UFC 303, you’ll know that the light heavyweight title bout for this event is Alex Pereira vs Jiří Prochazka. While it’s a fight that certainly has fans of the UFC excited, this was not always the title bout that we were going to be getting for UFC 303.

Initially, UFC 303 was promoting Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler on the fight card, but due to an unspecified injury, as Nine News reports, McGregor pulled out of the event, calling it a “postponement”.

“The decision to postpone the fight was not made lightly, but one made in consultation with my doctors, the UFC, and my team,” McGregor shared on X.

“My fans and opponent deserve me at my best for this fight and we will get there! Thank you for the messages of support, I am in good spirits and confident I’ll be back!”

Light heavyweight contender Jamahal Hill also had to drop out of the UFC 303 co-main event due to injury, with Carlos Ulberg now fighting Anthony Smith.
