UFC 246 features the return of Conor McGregor in a five-round welterweight bout against Donald Cerrone. The first pay-per-view fight card for 2020 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on January 19 (AEDT).
Conor McGregor (21-4) is a former UFC champion in two weight classes, featherweight and lightweight. He was last seen inside the Octagon in October 2018 when he was submitted in the fourth round by the reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Donald Cerrone (36-13) lost two of his previous bouts. Last September he was stopped by Justin Gaethje in the first round. In June he suffered the defeat by TKO (doctor’s stoppage) in the second round against Tony Ferguson.
The co-main event is a three-round women’s MMA battle between Holly Holm and Raquel Pennington. The pair of bantamweights squares off in the rematch.
