Conor McGregor will get a fight on home soil this weekend. The No. 13-ranked featherweight contender meets Diego Brandao in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin on Saturday.
McGregor exploded onto the UFC scene last year with two victories. He received one of the biggest ovations during the inaugural Fox Sports 1 event last August in a thrilling decision win over Max Holloway. Now he hopes to parlay the hype and wins into a serious title run.
Brandao is the winner of the 14th season of The Ultimate Fighter. He is coming off a KO loss to No. 6-ranked contender Dustin Poirier and is a replacement opponent for this bout.
Can Brandao derail the hype train of McGregor, or will the local boy do good?
