Will Fans Get a Refund After McGregor’s Pullout?

“McGregor’s injury leads to main event change”

Dana White recently announced that Conor McGregor will no longer fight Michael Chandler in the main event of UFC 303 on June 29 due to an injury. Instead, the main event will now feature a title rematch between Alex Pereira and Ji?í Procházka. Additionally, Jamahal Hill is also out of his co-main event fight against Carlos Ulberg due to injury, and the co-main event spot will now feature a featherweight bout between Brian Ortega and Diego Lopes. Ulberg will face UFC veteran Anthony Smith instead.

Refunds According to the Nevada Athletic Commission

Fans were eagerly anticipating McGregor’s return and many had already booked their tickets for the event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fortunately, according to Nevada Athletic Commission statutes, fans are eligible for a refund if they request one. Veteran MMA reporter Nolan King recently shared an update on X (formerly Twitter) highlighting a key point from NAC statutes chapter 467.255, which 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”.

Reactions and Speculations on McGregor’s Future

Former UFC fighter Chael Sonnen recently commented on the drama surrounding McGregor and Chandler’s fight, suggesting that McGregor might retire if the UFC 303 comeback fight falls through. During an episode of the “Good Guy/Bad Guy” show, Sonnen said:

“When the [press conference in Dublin] got canceled, I began to think about what it means long-term if Conor McGregor does not fight Michael Chandler on June 29, although I believe he will. If he doesn’t, I would go a step further and say that it will be the announcement of his retirement”.
