UFC 303: Conor McGregor’s Comeback Ignites Controversy Over Poster

"Fans clash over UFC 303's controversial poster!"


As UFC 303 approaches, marking the highly anticipated return of Conor McGregor to the octagon, excitement buzzes through the MMA community. Scheduled for June 29, this event is set to feature McGregor facing Michael Chandler in a five-round welterweight bout. However, despite the thrilling matchup, the official event poster has sparked a wave of criticism from fans.

Fan Reactions to the Poster:

The official UFC poster for UFC 303 was released recently, only to be met with immediate backlash. Fans took to social media to express their disappointment and confusion, questioning the UFC’s effort in the promotional design.

One fan humorously mistook the poster for a lesser event, commenting, “Oh, I thought this was a Fight Night poster.” Another was more direct with their dismay, exclaiming, “My God, what kind of poster is this?!” The criticism didn’t stop there, as others pondered, “Who even designs these?” and one remarked, “Bro, it doesn’t even look like Chandler, it looks like Bisping.”

The Return of Conor McGregor:

Conor McGregor, the former double champion, is gearing up for his first fight since July 2021 when he suffered a leg fracture in a rematch against Dustin Poirier. His opponent, Michael Chandler, hasn’t been seen in the octagon since his November 2022 submission loss to Poirier. This matchup not only marks a significant return for both fighters but also positions McGregor once again in the spotlight of the MMA world.


UFC 303 Fight Card (Adjusted for US Time Zones):

  • Welterweight: Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler
  • Light Heavyweight: Jamahal Hill vs. Khalil Rountree Jr.
  • Women’s Bantamweight: Mayra Bueno Silva vs. Macy Chiasson
  • Middleweight: Joe Pyfer vs. Marc-André Barriault
  • Women’s Strawweight: Michelle Waterson-Gomez vs. Gillian Robertson
  • Featherweight: Andre Fili vs. Cub Swanson
  • Flyweight: Rei Tsuruya vs. Carlos Hernandez
  • Bantamweight: Ricky Simón vs. Vinicius Oliveira
  • Bantamweight: Payton Talbott vs. Yanis Ghemmouri


While the focus should ideally be on the thrilling matchups, especially the headline event, the controversial poster has certainly stolen part of the spotlight. Will this impact the viewer anticipation or fuel more discussions until the fight night? Regardless, UFC 303 is poised to be a defining moment in 2023’s MMA calendar, drawing fans worldwide to witness the highs and lows of this combat sport.
