Conor McGregor Draws New UFC on Fox Sports 1 Opponent for Boston

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Conor McGregorAndy Ogle is off of the UFC on Fox Sports 1 fight card on Aug. 17. Popular Irishman Conor McGregor will now face Max Holloway instead.

UFC officials announced the change on Wednesday.

McGregor and Ogle made for a solid Ireland vs. England in the heavily Irish town of Boston, but it wasn’t to be.

McGregor (13-2) made his long-awaited promotional debut at UFC on Fuel TV 9, stopping Marcus Brimage with strikes little over a minute into their bout. The victory showed that the McGregor hype was spot-on, and improved his current winning streak to nine consecutive fights.

Holloway’s professional record currently stands at 7-2. He recently had a three-fight winning streak ground to a halt with a split decision loss to Dennis Bermudez at UFC 160.

McGregor vs. Holloway is expected to take a spot on the preliminary portion of the UFC on Fox Sports 1: Shogun vs. Sonnen fight card on Aug. 17 in Boston.

    Seems so long ago that this guy fought. Can’t wait to see him fight again and find out what he’s made of. One fight does not define a career, but man he was entertaining.
