Conor McGregor has been out of the Octagon for more than a year. He hasn’t, however, been out of the public eye, having been involved in a few out of the cage conflicts that landed him in legal hot water. 

He’s hoping to shift the public perception of him back onto his fighting when he faces Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the UFC 246 main event on Jan. 18 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

McGregor last set foot in the Octagon in a losing effort against lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. Having spent the entirety of 2019 on the sidelines, he intends for this bout with Cerrone to be the start of his 2020 season, in which he intends to fight at least three times.

Like McGregor, Cerrone is coming off of a loss in his last fight, actually his last two bouts ended in defeat, and looks to use McGregor’s star power as an assist to make a quick rebound into the upper echelon. 

Joining them in Las Vegas is a co-main event featuring a pivotal women’s bantamweight bout between former UFC champion Holly Holm and former title challenger Raquel Pennington. There’s is a rematch nearly five years in the making, as Holm defeated Pennington via split decision in her Octagon debut in 2015.

The UFC 246 pay-per-view opens with what promises to be an exciting lightweight bout between former champion Anthony Pettis and Carlos Diego Ferreira.
