The UFC has announced that Conor McGregor vs Cole Miller will headline UFC:Dublin in July.

Conor McGregor's UFC return is now official.

The former Cage Warriors lightweight and featherweight champion is scheduled to face Cole Miller in the main event UFC Fight Night: Dublin, in what will mark the promotion's first trip to Ireland since 2009.

The Irish-born McGregor is 14-2 in his MMA career, and 2-0 since joining the UFC in 2013. McGregor quickly made a name for himself, as he defeated Marcus Brimage in spectacular fashion, before picking up a decision win over Max Holloway a few months later. His second win was a bittersweet one, as he tore his ACL midway through the fight and was forced onto the sidelines from last August.

Cole Miller made a successful return to featherweight in 2012, and has gone 3-1 in his last four octagon outings. His latest win was a submission victory over Sam Sicillia in January.

The updated fight card includes:

Conor McGregor vs. Cole Miller
Gunnar Nelson vs. Ryan LaFlare
Brad Pickett vs. Ian McCall
Neil Seery vs. Phil Harris
Tom Lawlor vs. Ilir Latifi
Cody Donovan vs. Nikita Krylov

UFC Fight Night: Dublin is scheduled to take place July 19 at the O2 in Dublin, Ireland.
