Conor McGregor is back this weekend. After losing to Khabib Nurmagemedov in October 2018 — in a rivalry that often went to weird, racially charged areas McGregor is returning to the octagon at UFC 246 against perennial fan favourite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The press conference is over, both fighters have now made weight. Now all that’s left is the fight itself.
And love him or hate him, there’s nothing quite like a Conor McGregor fight. The build-up, the media, the interviews — McGregor has a way of raising the stakes of every single contest he’s involved in to absolute fever pitch. This time he’s testing his unique high-pressure/counter-punching style against Donald Cerrone, a fighter also known for being involved in entertaining fights. The twist?
The fight is at welterweight (170 pounds), not at featherweight (145) where McGregor made his reputation, or lightweight (155) where McGregor was also once champion. Welterweight gives Cerrone, who had a very successful run at 170, a distinct size advantage over McGregor.
It is time for the UFC’s biggest star to set foot in the Octagon after more than a year away from action. Conor McGregor returns to UFC on Saturday in a welterweight bout with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246 from Las Vegas’ T-Mobile arena. A potential lightweight title shot is on the table if McGregor takes out Cerrone, the man who holds the record for most wins in UFC history.
McGregor has not fought since he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018 in a bid to once again hold the lightweight championship. Cerrone is coming off a knockout loss to Justin Gaethje but remains an always-game opponent with a wide range of tools at his disposal. After a flurry of huge cards to close out 2019, the rest of the UFC 246 card may feel light on meaningful bouts with title implications, but there is potential for a fun night of fights in Vegas.
