Conor McGregor vs Cowboy: UFC 246. When and where to watch the return of the former Lightweight and featherweight champion.
Connor McGregor, arguably the biggest star in the world of mixed martial arts, will make his long awaited return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the main event of UFC 246. He will be up against fan favourite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.
In an interview with Jim Rome on Thursday, UFC president Dana White confirmed that if McGregor won his match then he would earn himself a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“He gets what he’s been waiting for,” White answered when asked what comes next for McGregor. “He gets what he’s been asking for.
White then confirmed what everyone had been thinking for a long time.
“He has been chomping at the bit for the Khabib rematch. I think it’s no big secret. If he wins this weekend, he will get that shot at the title and it will be the biggest pay-per-view ever in UFC history.”
Mcgregor has earned several notable victories in his career and is easily one of the greatest to ever grace the octagon. However, Cerrone himself is no mug in the ring. His opponent holds the record for the most wins and finishes in the history of UFC.

Regardless of who comes out the victor, this is guaranteed to be an exciting match. Khabib, who will be facing Tony Ferguson in April will likely keep an eye on this match as well, knowing fully well of the Irishman’s desire to get one back at him.
