The UFC has set up an Ireland vs. England matchup for their return to Boston. Conor McGregor will face off with TUF: Live alum Andy Ogle this August. UFC officials announced the pairing earlier today.
McGregor’s addition to the Boston card is no surprise considering the city’s Boston ties. The Irishman made a splash in his promotional debut by destroying Marcus Brimage at UFC on FUEL TV 9. Ogle was last in action at UFC on FUEL TV 7, where he defeated Josh Grispi via unanimous decision. “The Little Axe” has gone 1-1 since dropping to featherweight and will look to make it two in a row when he faces McGregor.
UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 will take place August 17 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The card will feature a bout between former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne. No main event has been announced at this time, however UFC president Dana White has promised a huge card for the UFC’s debut on the burgeoning network.
