‘I am very grateful to be about to return and get to do what I love again,’ McGregor recently said regarding the contest. ‘I look forward to the fresh test Dustin will bring since our first bout, while also showcasing my own incredibly deep cache of weaponry. Whatever tool is needed on the night will be pulled from the duffel.
‘I am also really excited about aiding Dustin’s charity ‘The Good Fight Foundation’, which through the donation, will build a gym/premise for disadvantaged youth in his childhood hometown. I truly love this, and pledge to match the donation on a premise in my own childhood hometown! Both spots with an ode to the upcoming bout.’
The pair first met in the featherweight division at UFC 178 in 2014 in a completely different phase of their careers.
