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.
