Conor McGregor's first UFC media appearance in nearly three years will be on home soil.

UFC CEO Dana White announced Friday that McGregor and Michael Chandler will take to the microphones at a press conference June 3 at 3Arena in Dublin ahead of their highly anticipated fight.

McGregor, who's been out of action since July 2021, is scheduled to headline the annual International Fight Week pay-per-view event - UFC 303 - against Chandler on June 29 in Las Vegas.

The press conference will start at 5 p.m. local time and be free and open to the public.

McGregor, the biggest star in MMA history and a former two-division champion, returns for the first time since suffering a broken leg in a trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

UFC 303 will also feature a light heavyweight bout between Jamahal Hill and Carlos Ulberg as well as a welterweight tilt between Ireland's Ian Machado Garry and Michael Page.
