And Notorious will be looking to return to winnings ways after also losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov back in MMA – now without a win since beating Eddie Alvarez two years ago at UFC 205.

McGregor lost to Khabib at UFC 229 via a rear naked choke in the fourth round losing out on the chance to lift the lightweight world title for a second time.

The Irishman is currently suspended for his part in the post-fight brawl that followed his loss to Khabib at UFC 229.
