McGregor is set to make his debut against American boxer Conor McGregor. The two fighters have been booked by UFC to meet each other for a world title at UFC 189. The match up was confirmed when both parties signed contracts with the promotion company.
The location of the fight is important because it determines how much time difference there is between the UK and Nevada. If the fight takes place in the US then it means that Americans will get home from work on Sunday morning before many Europeans wake up. However, if it's held in Europe then those people who stay up late on weekends could see the fight live.
