Conor McGregor makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone as the main draw to UFC 246 in Las Vegas.
The Notorious hasn’t been seen in the cage since his October 2018 encounter with Khabib Nurmagomedov. A fourth-round submission loss was the culmination of one of his most hyped fights to date. Now, he’s back to prove he’s still the organization’s biggest attraction against a man who’s always game for a big fight.
Cerrone enters the bout as the perfect foil to bring McGregor back into the spotlight. He’s made a career out of being an action fighter. He’s been on the losing end in his last two bouts, but there isn’t really such thing as a boring fight involving the 36-year-old.
