Conor McGregor makes his return at UFC 246 this weekend, and it will be the UFC’s legendary Cowboy welcoming him back to the octagon. McGregor hasn’t set foot in the cage since a UFC 229 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, in that span of time, has fought five times, going 3-2 with four post-fight bonuses.
Also on the card, former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm faces off in a rematch with Raquel Pennington, while Anthony Pettis throws down with Carlos Diego Ferreira.
Ahead of Saturday’s big show in Vegas, the UFC hosted a pre-fight press conference, open to both fans and media. Tune in Wednesday at 8PM ET to see all the major players on stage.
