"The UFC is coming back to Boston for a third time.
"The headliners for the Jan. 18 Fight Night card at TD Garden are Conor McGregor and Dennis Siver in the featherweight division (145 pounds).
"McGregor, from Dublin, made a name for himself the last time the UFC was in town, on Aug. 17, 2013, during the UFC Fight Night event that featured Chael Sonnen and Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua.
"Despite an injury to his ACL suffered in the second round, McGregor won a unanimous decision over Max Holloway in a preliminary bout.
"McGregor, who is 16-2 overall and 4-0 in the UFC, emerged this year as a fighter to watch. His brash, colorful personality, along with his fighting style, have made him a crowd favorite."
