They'll enter the octagon later this year.
The Notorious Conor McGregor is set to battle once again and now the date has been set for December 12.
His rescheduled title fight with featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who pulled out of their original July bout due to a rib injury, has been hailed as the biggest fight in featherweight history.
There had been plenty of speculation about where it would be held, with the massive Cowboys Stadium in Dallas being one contender, but the location has now been confirmed as the MGM in Las Vegas.
No word as yet on who will be serenading McGregor as he enters the octagon for the most important fight of his career. Sinead O'Connor duly obliged before he dispatched Chad Mendes in their place-holder fight in July.
As Ed Sheeran told Hot Press before his Croker shows, if asked, he'd happily do the honours.
"I was shown that fight that he was just in where he gets up, smiles and knocks [Chad Mendes] out!" the pop star said. "I think it's fantastic that he's doing really well."
Something to mull over Conor...
