Conor McGregor will make his much-awaited octagon return at UFC 303 against Michael Chandler. McGregor is the biggest star in combat sports, and the PPV will likely shatter several records. Several fighters want to be on the undercard, and Alateng Heili is a recent addition to the list.

Heili fought at the recent UFC Vegas 92, defeating Kleydson Rodrigues via unanimous decision in a bantamweight matchup. In the post-fight press conference of the fight night, the Chinaman from Inner Mongolia surprised the MMA media as he announced his plans in English without a translator.

[On] International Fight Week [at UFC 303], I fight again. I want to fight anybody, I don't care. Give me fight.

Alateng Heili didn’t have any names in his mind but revealed he would be happy if it were a ranked fighter. Nonetheless, he stated he won’t have any problems fighting an unranked fighter either. If the Chinaman finds a spot at UFC 303, there will be a lot of eyeballs due to the Irishman.

Dana White has already revealed that UFC 303 is on course to generate more than a $20 million gate. This is due to even the casual fans following McGregor’s words, actions, and opinions. McGregor eagerly watched Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk and looks motivated to announce his comeback in style.

Conor McGregor speaks about the state of boxing’s heavyweight division

The combat sports eagerly watched the boxing fight for the undisputed heavyweight titles between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. Billed as Ring of Fire, Usyk put his unified titles on the line against Fury, who did the same with his WBC title. Usyk won the fight via split decision, with many calling it never should’ve been split.

Nonetheless, he became the first undisputed heavyweight boxing champion in the four-belt era. On the other hand, Fury suffered his first defeat in professional boxing. In the aftermath of the boxing fight, Conor McGregor shared his thoughts on what’s next for the boxing’s heavyweight division.

A mad hiding! What next, who knows. Usyk is incredible. He has beaten both soundly. Whatever moves towards Tyson and AJ, I am for it. If Fury wishes to go for a second try at the wheel, AJ had two attempts, so why not? Tall ask, but not impossible. If not, AJ vs. Usyk III for the last hoorah, and then win, lose, or draw, go for Tyson vs. AJ.

McGregor congratulated both boxers and Turki Alalshikh, the mastermind behind the sporting spectacles in Riyadh. He even stated the match was as close as it could get. Nevertheless, Usyk will lose his undisputed status as the IBF will soon strip him of the title.
