Two UFC featherweights looking to settle a score could be meeting when the UFC heads to Dublin, Ireland. MMAJunkie reports that outspoken featherweights Cole Miller and Conor McGregor could be meeting when the UFC heads to McGregor’s hometown on July 19.
The two fighters have exchanged pleasantries over the course of McGregor’s quick ascent to UFC stardom. While McGregor had set his sights on higher ranked fighters, the talented featherweight has been on the shelf since tearing his ACL in his victory over Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26. McGregor has won both of his UFC fights and will look to make it three in a row in his next fight.
Miller has won two straight fights since his controversial loss to Manny Gamburyan at UFC Fight Night 26. Miller has been an outspoken critic of McGregor’s quick rise to fame, making the fight an easy one to promote for the UFC’s return to Ireland.
UFC Fight Night Dublin will take place July 19. No main event has been named as of this post.
