Hill-Rountree confirmed co-main event on McGregor-Chandler card

jamahal hill

Light heavyweights Jamahal Hill and Khalil Rountree Jr. will square off at UFC 303 as the co-main event with the Conor McGregor-Michael Chandler welterweight fight.

Organizers confirmed their addition to the card on Thursday for the event scheduled for June 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nev.

It is a quick return to the Octagon for Hill, who sustained a first-round knockout loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 300 on April 13.

Hill, 32, won the light heavyweight championship with a defeat of Glover Teixeira in January 2023, but was forced to relinquish the title that July after tearing his Achilles tendon.

Rountree, 34, enters the cage on a five-match winning streak. His most recent victory came via a third-round TKO against Anthony Smith at UFC Fight Night on Dec. 9, 2023.

UFC 303 marks the return of McGregor, 35, following a three-year absence. The Irishman sustained a broken leg in a July 2021 loss to Dustin Poirier in his last fight.
